Named Hortus Deliciarum, Latin for ‘Garden of Delights’, Gucci’s second High Jewelry collection presented in a campaign starring Jodie Turner-Smith draws on the symbolic motifs that are dear to Alessandro Michele and Gucci, taken from the extensive and multifarious canon of the luxury House’s iconography.
This new collection evokes the inherent splendor of Mother Nature, Gucci’s ultimate muse—and the universal beauty of the sky.
This eclectic line is distinguished by its kaleidoscopic palette, a reflection of the mercurial sky and its shifting hues and constellations. The collections takes its cue from the ephemeral yet recurring beauty of the changing sky and its shifting colors and constellations.
The collection comprises more than 130 pieces, largely one of a kind, and its motifs revolve around four themes. Gucci’s ‘hortus’ (or ‘garden’) of jewels is inhabited by magical beasts and flowering with totemic symbols of nature, distilling the poetry of the past with the beauty of the present. Included in the collection are striking solitaires as well as a precious selection of bejeweled timepieces. Gucci’s second High Jewelry line features tasseled necklaces, rings, bracelets, watches, and chandelier earrings.
The High Jewelry collection combines Italian craftsmanship with the romantic and poetic narrative of Gucci.
Each gemstone has been fastidiously chosen for its quality and uniqueness, speaking to the painstaking attention to detail that Gucci creations are known for. In an array of pieces, the world of nature brings to life a collection redefined with maximalist allure.
Alongside nature, whose elements including flowers and magical beasts are ubiquitous in the House’s ‘hortus’ (Latin for ‘garden’) of jewels, Jodie Tuner-Smith acts as a fellow muse in poetic images from the new Gucci High Jewelry campaign.
