High Jewelry 2022: Louis Vuitton, Dior, and More

No contributor

Throughout this week in Paris, luxury houses have been presenting their High Jewelry debuts for 2022. Here, we’re looking at the latest gems from Louis Vuitton, Dior, Cindy Chao, and Chopard.

Continuing its namesake’s bicentenary birthday celebration, the second installation in Louis Vuitton’s “Bravery” collection returns to the maison’s roots, looking at the iconic form of the trunk for inspiration. For the collection, fine jewels across a colorful spectrum were applied to shapes and settings that pull from the brand founder’s earliest designs, paying attention to their finest details to inform the selection of necklaces, rings, and bracelets. Of all the gorgeous designs, the ones we’re still thinking about include the diamond-covered La Mini Malle informed by the Petite Malle, and Le Multipin necklace that glitters with over 100 colorful stones and a central 42.42 carats lagoon blue tourmaline, set within an embellishment reminiscent of a trunk closure.

Dior’s jewelry designer Victoire de Castellane and creative director Kim Jones came together in a collaborative effort to create the house’s elegant new High Jewelry bracelet. The “CD” monogram became the inspiration for a chain-link structure, which encircles the wrist in endless diamonds. Set into white gold, the design features a baguette emerald on either side of the emblematic letters.

CINDY CHAO The Art Jewel introduced a suite of exquisite designs drawing from the beauty of nature, presented in a private showing at The Ritz Paris. Combining Eastern art influences with traditional Western jewelry craftsmanship, the designer’s bejeweled flora and fauna were meticulously crafted in great detail, each shimmering with thousands of minuscule gems that covered the surface of shapes like a dragonfly, a feather, and sprigs of coral. Two of our favorites included the Black Label Masterpiece V Foliage earrings, taking the form of a whimsical leaf crusted in white and yellow diamonds, and the Sapphire Floral brooch with a glassy blue, cushion cut Cabochon Unheated Burma sapphire at its center.

Titled “Exceptional Stones,” the latest from Chopard focused on highlighting a selection of rare gemstones in elegant, classic settings. Fueled by the beauty of nature, we saw the 10.88 carats Rose of Caroline diamond—named for Artistic Director Caroline Scheufele—placed on a ring with two heart-shaped rubies on either side and a micro setting of white and pink diamonds. Alongside the high jewelry designs, the house also introduced its latest find, the Insofu emerald, which was uncovered in Zambia weighing in at an astounding 6,225 carats.
