2019 will be bright or it won’t be. To prove it, the experts have picked Living Coral as the colour of the year. A soft and eye-catching shade with a slight golden tinge that creates a summer vibe. A colour that has inspired jewellers with vibrant pieces most of which showcase coral itself. Let’s take a look.
Clash by Cartier
Pre Catelan Rose Ring by Dior
Inspired by Mr. Dior’s favourite flower, the Pre Catelan Rose collection is a tribute to nature and eternal roses showcased by coral.
Positano Earrings by Garnazelle
These earrings take us to Positano with the Mediterranean sea spray. Garnazelle puts a fresh spin on branch coral in a seriously 70s pair of earrings.
We’re staying on the Mediterranean shore with the collection “Les Bouées Corail” by the three friends behind Canaglia, a new vibrant and sun-kissed jewellery brand. The founders have used reconstituted coral to protect the increasingly rare wild resource, lock in the colour and make the stone last longer. We love the 18 carat gold, coral and diamond chain ring with a nautical vibe.
Alison Chemla’s signature enamel is given a hand-painted bright coral hue. The detail we love? The gold hearts that make the Amour to die for.
The designer has a new take on ears of corn, one of her signature patterns, in a range of oversize earrings. This version sees the corns delicately wrap around coral in bakelite whose hue instantly illuminates your face.
