Christian Dior brings a pop of color to new high jewelry collection
Feb 12, 2016
For her latest collection, Dior Jewelry's creative director, Victoire de Castellane, drew inspiration from the many colors in the garden of Christian Dior's childhood home in Granville, which is now a museum. The collection sees an explosion of color, with candy-bright shades assembled in perfectly harmonious homages to the great French designer's childhood in Normandy, France.
This high-jewelry collection, presented alongside the recent haute couture shows in Paris, includes 12 unique pieces that capture the joy of childhood games with Victoire de Castellane's favorite precious stones: peridots, green beryls, aquamarines, tanzanites, pink tourmalines and rubellites.
The pieces in this "Granville" collection were created "as if putting stickers together spontaneously, without any preconceived constraints," said the creative director. Although inspired by childhood joie de vivre, the pieces have been meticulously crafted with creativity and exceptional skill in Dior's Parisian high-jewelry workshops.
Christian Dior's Normandy childhood is channeled in rings, earrings and bracelets that pop with color. The collection is accompanied by a range of nine watches, crafted from white, yellow and rose gold, evoking the festive and colorful ambiance of the Granville carnival.
Flagship pieces in the "D de Dior Granville" collection include a pink gold watch with a bezel set with brilliant-cut yellow sapphires and a diamond-studded crown. This fresh bouquet of springtime color is topped with a turquoise dial and a pale pink patent leather bracelet.
