The 1970’s revival of multicolored sensation in white or yellow gold with precious wristwatches and jewelry makes a comeback at Dior Joaillerie. Dior’s Creative Director of jewelry Victoire de Castellane is inspired by asymmetrical, abstract, and organic shapes in an array of colors inspired by nature for the latest collection Gem Dior.
Under De Castellane the brand has developed a new chapter of Dior’s legacy, transforming couture and ready to wear in the form of High jewelry and Fine jewelry for over 20 years with varying successful collections Rose Dior Bagatelle, Oui, and Rose Des Vents. The Gem Dior collection consists of seven watches and eleven pieces of jewelry inspired by the color samples found in the Dior archives. The yellow-gold watch strata motif with accents of lapis lazuli, malachite, mother-of-pearl in a multicolor open cuff harmonizes the diamonds, turquoise, onyx, and aragonite stones.
“I wanted to move on to abstract, but it’s always an organic abstract that breaks with figurative creation. I saw plates of tourmaline in octagonal and irregular shapes that inspired me for the watch dial,” De Castellane describing the unique harmony between nature and form. The architectural style of each piece features a layering of different sizes of stones. The watch case takes an organic octanal form.
Other watches come in steel and black mother-of-pearl, pink gold and white mother-of-pearl, yellow gold diamonds and lapis lazuli, and 18k gold and diamonds. The collection’s jewelry pieces add the elegance of stones in the Dior ring and cuff bracelet with the side-by-side lapis lazuli, chrysoprase, malachite, and diamonds. For a muted statement of misaligned linked pieces, the motif comes in one metal shade in the form of rose gold earrings, a yellow gold bracelet, and a white gold ring, all with their touch of sparkling diamonds.
The Gem Dior collection is available now on Dior.com.
