Presented in Paris during Fashion Week, the new high jewelry collections gave us an eyeful. Rain of carats, loads of emeralds back in force, it’s time for boldness among the great names of the Place Vendôme, determined to take the lead in terms of innovation. Here are a few highlights.
For this new high jewelry collection, Victoire de Castellane drew its inspiration from the world of couture, highlighting the technique of braids, an art of detail dear to the House. In this collection of 81 original pieces, the creations stand out for their finesse. We love the couture treatment of the gems, sculpted to perfection, which are elegantly displayed on the skin.
The Alchemist of Light, De Beers
For this first chapter of “The Alchemist of Light” collection, De Beers unveiled the spectacular “Atomic” and “Light Rays” sets. These audacious pieces are innovative, with a real focus on titanium research. Developed around the idea of light, and its ability to play with colors, depending on how it is reflected or absorbed, the pieces are a perfect fusion of art and science.
New Maharajahs, Boucheron
In 1928, Boucheron created for the Maharajah of Patiala the most important special order in the history of Place Vendôme. In 2022, Claire Choisne, Creative Director, pays tribute to this treasure by creating for the House “New Maharajahs”, a collection inspired by the symbols of ancestral India: lotus flower, turban ornament, wedding bracelet, modernized by a visionary design. The key words? transparency and purity of gems for contemporary jewelry.
The jewelry creations of the fourth TASAKI Atelier collection, imagined by Prabal Gurung, honor the Earth and its breathtaking landscapes. Each piece is a condensation of the creative force of these elements, sublimated by vibrant color combinations, such as the Aurora set, with its gradations of diamonds and sapphires, which offers an immersion in the deep ocean. Thrills guaranteed.
The man who built his reputation with the success of the House of De Grisogono is back on the scene with his eponymous jewelry brand. Loyal to his image, the creations stand out for their opulence. Sinuous lines, combinations of materials, play on the sizes of gems … jewelry revives with a spectacular brilliance under the baguette of maestro Gruosi!
