More than ever, Paris kept its position as the capital of fashion… and jewellery. The great names of the Place Vendôme once again demonstrated their talent with breathtaking collections of creativity and know-how. Here is a first overview of our favourites.
50 shades of blue with TASAKI
Inspired by the multitude of shades of the sky, the Radiant Sky collection reveals the full range of jewellery expression of the Japanese company. Known for its exceptional expertise in diamonds and pearls, it is in the field of coloured stones that TASAKI brilliantly demonstrates its talent, particularly with the ORE line, whose organic design is punctuated by opal, tanzanite, tourmaline and coloured sapphires. The favourite piece? The Radiant necklace in white gold, mixing Akoya pearls, South Sea pearls, diamonds, turquoise, aquamarine, blue zircon and Paraíba tourmaline. A beautiful piece.
Chopard inspired by cinema
Entitled Red Carpet Collection, Chopard’s high jewellery collection is composed of necklaces, earrings and bracelets designed for gala evenings. A profusion of gems in vibrant colours, carefully chosen by Caroline Scheufeule, co-president and artistic director of the house. We love the very couture approach of the collection, like this necklace made of rubellites and pink sapphires, which revisits the claudine neckline spirit with audacity and modernity.
And the light came in thanks to De Beer
After a first chapter unveiled last January, De Beers continues its exploration of the theme of light. While diamonds still play the leading role, other gems are being challenged by pink diamonds, crystal and, for the first time, African green chrysoprase. Cut as a cabochon, the gem works wonderfully with the black rhodium of the Midnight Aura set, injecting a dose of glamour. Another surprise in the collection is the use of aluminium in vibrant shades of blue, pink and black. Our favourite piece? The Ascending Shadows necklace, an articulated whirlwind of 142 elements adorned with white and green diamonds, from which a sumptuous 3.41-carat pear-shaped Fancy Light Grey diamond seems to hang. Wow effect guaranteed.
Head in the stars at CHANEL
Comets, moons, suns… CHANEL invokes the stars for this high jewellery collection “1932”, inspired by the archives, which proposes an off-ground journey around the diamond. In total, 77 pieces, including 12 transformable ones, which roll up and rest freely on the skin in a celestial body to body. Necklaces, bracelets, earrings, in this starry ballet, the light of a white diamond responds to the warmth of a yellow diamond, the intensity of a blue sapphire, and the bewitching waves of an iridescent opal. An irresistible map of the sky.
