Van Cleef & Arpels

Van Cleef & Arpels white gold and platinum Nuée d’émeraudes necklace with emeralds, sapphires and diamonds.

The maison’s new high jewellery collection – Sous les étoiles, Heavenly Dreams – reimagines the cosmos in dramatic fashion as seen here in this Nuée d’émeraudes necklace. It depicts the comet 41P, known for its blue-green glow, in precious gem and diamond baguettes set in graphic lines. Along the edge are 96 rare Afghan emeralds, which total 62.3 carats, and flaunt an elongated shape and a unique hue tinged with a delicate hint of yellow.

Chanel

Chanel Escale à Venise Eblouissante platinum and pink gold earrings with diamonds.

Showcased in Chanel’s high jewellery collection Escale à Venise, the Eblouissante parure flaunts distinctive white and pink geometric designs, as seen in these earrings. A unique interpretation of the palace facades and polychromatic marble floors of churches in The Floating City, the staggered motif set with baguette diamonds is also reminiscent of the quilting cherished by Mademoiselle Chanel.

Tiffany & Co.

Tiffany & Co. 2021 Blue Book Collection yellow gold and platinum necklace with over 139 carats of cushion-cut aquamarines, cushion-cut yellow beryls totalling more than 121 carats, custom-cut rock crystals weighing over 47 carats, and oval and princess-cut diamonds of more than 9 carats.

From the Sea range of Tiffany & Co.’s 2021 Blue Book Collection is this necklace, whose unique gemstone cut and innovative design are the result of a year-long collaboration between high jewellery designers and artisans. Interspersed between the surprising pairing of soft, blue-green aquamarines with silken sunny yellow beryls are geometric yellow gold-framed rock crystal panels, each graced with a “floating” oval diamond in the centre.

Graff

Graff Tribal Collection platinum, white and yellow gold necklace with 374 white and yellow diamonds totalling 65 carats.

This mesmerising plastron necklace is part of Graff’s Tribal Collection, which draws inspiration from the enchanting folk tale of the maiden who created the stars. Expressed through an impactful, stylised motif, the creation represents how mankind has looked to the stars and celestial bodies for guidance through the ages.

Chaumet

Perspectives de Chaumet Lacis white gold necklace with brilliant-cut diamonds and one 21.93-carat pear-shaped rubellite.

The Lacis line from the geometric, architecture-inspired Perspectives de Chaumet jewellery collection is a subtle interplay of light and transparency created by the fils couteau setting. The signature Chaumet technique renders the metal structures invisible, allowing the gemstones to sparkle. This necklace also recalls stone latticework on mashrabiyas as well as a maze of narrow streets.

Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton Stellar Times Soleils white gold bracelet with a 13.53-carat emerald-cut yellow sapphire, 389 brilliant-cut diamonds totalling 11.52 carats, 180 brilliant-cut yellow sapphires with a weight of 7.72 carats and 196 brilliant-cut spessartite garnets weighing 8.67 carats.

The maison conveys the sun’s immense power through the five-piece Soleils set from the high jewellery collection, Stellar Times. The star’s majesty is embodied in the set’s bracelet, which showcases the signature LV checkerboard pattern. Diamonds, yellow sapphires and spessartite garnets are applied individually to create a hypnotic latticework that is topped with a captivating central yellow sapphire.

Harry Winston

Harry Winston Central Park platinum earrings with 122 diamonds totalling 4.38 carats, and 22 emeralds and aquamarines weighing 2.05 carats.

Located just blocks away from Mr Winston’s office in New York City, Central Park often provided a fresh perspective and inspiration to him and his designers. Masterfully capturing the geometric layout of the world-renowned location, the Central Park Mosaic drop earrings feature an artful arrangement of emeralds, sapphires, diamonds and aquamarines set to mimic the extraordinary landscape of the city’s iconic destination.

Cartier

Panthère de Cartier white gold necklace with diamonds, emeralds and onyx.

Geometry is an integral part of Cartier‘s stylistic vocabulary, and here, it finds a new dimension when applied to the maison’s most beloved emblem, the panther. One of four new creations in the Panthère de Cartier jewellery collection, this open-worked high jewellery necklace is an abstract expression of the big cat realised through architectural lines and edges.
