Mediterranean Eden, Big Ben, and Château de Versailles: Paris’ High Jewelry Collections

By Whitewall

December 29, 2016

Diamonds, rubies, and emeralds—are just the beginning! The high jewelry collections shown during Paris Couture Week this summer left us speechless. There was Boucheron’s jeweled interpretation and ode to nature with radiant lilies, peacock feathers, and majestic animals (including a deer, a hawk, and a wolf); Bulgari’s natural and sophisticated Italian inspiration in “Italian Extravaganza,” “Mediterranean Eden,” and “Roman Heritage”; Chanel’s “Les Blés de CHANEL” collection, full of fine necklaces, watches, earrings, rings, brooches, and matching sets with diamonds, yellow sapphires, Japanese cultured pearls, and colored gemstones; De Beers’s “London” collection, showing inspiration from landmarks like Big Ben, Battersea Power Station, and Thames Path in an array of decadently undressed diamonds; Christian Dior’s homage to the interiors of the Château de Versailles (such as the Hall of Mirrors, Rococo-style furniture, and more) with a selection of illuminating gems and diamonds set in oxidized silver; Louis Vuitton’s “Blossom” collection, with the house’s four-petal flower as the ingénue; and Giampiero Bodino’s colorful collection, including a 38.08-carat garnet necklace—the beloved Rosa dei Venti necklace.
