The new Dior Rose high jewellery collection celebrates the full renovation of the House’s historic home at 30 Avenue Montaigne in Paris.
Victoire de Castellane, Artistic Director of Dior Joaillerie was inspired to create “Planet Dior” a collection of 116 pieces that feature the rose in new, romantic, futuristic and abstract ways. In its romantic version, the rose convenes blue Myanmar sapphires on a necklace, earrings, bracelet and a double ring.
Set at an angle, an emerald-cut diamond illuminates the hand, while barely budding pink sapphire flowers with pistils sit on diamond sepals. In another interpretation, the rose resembles stained glass while a futuristic rose features graphic petals and bold colours.
Stones including Sri Lankan sapphires, Zambian emeralds, golden South Sea pearls pear-cut rubies and yellow diamonds dazzle on necklaces, bracelets and earrings to create a modern romance.
As with all Dior Jewellery collections, there is a connection to Haute Couture with a story of a precious galaxy. Castellane draws on traditional jewellery-making savoir-faire to create contemporary pieces.
