Day 1 Jewellery Highlights: Reza, CHANEL, De Beers and Russian Alexandrites.

I can’t consider a much better method to begin my very first day in Paris than by finding the amazing gems of Reza, developed by Olivier Reza the child of creator Alexandre! With 80 years of proficiency in choosing gemstones, each production of Reza high jewellery starts with the gems. This VSS1 IIa type heart-shaped diamond ring immediately took my heart, while the unequaled excellence of these 65 ct ruby earrings merely blew my mind.

Who understood I ‘d visit my house nation in the heart of Paris! The brand-new “Le Paris Russe de Chanel” collection is committed to royal Russia, and is an expedition in Chanel’s appreciation for its embroidery, folklore and royal history. Could the Russian beau, Grand Duke Dimitri Pavlovich have anything to do with it? (wink-wink!)

My next stop, the house of diamonds: DeBeers The brand-new DeBeers collection, Portraits of Nature, shows a kaleidoscope of colour and light and is the brand name’s biggest high jewellery collection to date. It is a vision of extraordinary diamonds and the chromatic results of animals like flamingos, emperor butterflies, chameleons, cichlids and zebras. Check out my AnimalJewellery Curation on Pinterest for more distinct animals influenced gems!

What a wonderful afternoon at the Mus ée des Arts Décoratifs! I’m here to witness the RubeusImperial Alexandrite Collection with a record-breaking 69.37 ct Russian alexandrite gems. First found in 1830 in the Ural Mountains, the gem was called after Alexander II, who was successor to the throne at the time. What truly strikes me about alexandrite is its capability to drastically alter colour in incandescent light from bluish-green to reddish-purple. Emerald by day, ruby by night!

Day 2 Jewellery Highlights: Suzanne Syz, Van Cleef & &(********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** )(***************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** )(******************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************* )(******************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** )(***************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** )and Gemfields showcasing Bina Goenka and Francis de Lara

I like talking jewellery and much more so the art talk. Sharing this enthusiasm with non-traditional high jewellery designer SuzanneSyz was a wonderful surprise of the day. Her gems are influenced by the amazing art work of the 20 th century and include some uncommon product mixes, like an 80 carat paraiba tourmaline embeded in a rock crystal ring.

Feeling the love at Paris Couture Week with the brand-new VanCleef & &Arpels high jewellery collection,Romeo &JulietThe language of love revealed in gems … so romantic! Often finding motivation in literature, VanCleef & &Arpels(*********** )commemoratesShakespeare’s work of art, playing out the scenes of the enthusiasts’ fate in a Renaissance Verona of valuable gems.

For all the admirers of extraordinary workmanship, the brand-new gems of Buccellati— consisting of the choker and earrings developed by LucreziaBuccellati— include the conventional maison’s jewellery-making methods. For diamond enthusiasts, the brand-new Buccellati flower cut with 57 elements, in which every aspect is mirrored, existed throughout Paris CoutureWeek And I even attempted to cut one myself! You require nerves of steel to push the genuine diamond onto a cutting wheel for the very first time!

Thirty minutes later on and we’re hopping over to experience Paris through the eyes of Boucheron and their Vu Du 26 high jewellery collection. As the name recommends the gems check out the French heritage and imaginative essence of the well known Maison through 3 chapters: Parisian architecture and culture, Place Vend ôme encapsulated in gems, and 26 V, the household home and heart of Boucheron’s imagination. I might invest days checking out these treasures. They left me in total wonder of the charming workmanship and remarkable gems.

The collection, which truly resonated with me on Day 2 was The Riders of the Knights by LouisVuitton Having commemorated self-love and the skill of female jewellery designers, I succumbed to LV’s empowering homage to female heroines of the middle ages duration. They have a lot in typical with contemporary ladies today, who can forming their own fates. Borrowing from the style aspects of a middle ages fortress, The Riders of the Knights collection produces a sparkly armour of diamonds for she who attempts to use it.

At the Suite of Gemstones, it was a fantastic enjoyment to witness and emphasize Gemfields’ properly sourced African emeralds and rubies in their amazing great jewellery productions. The 18 k gold and emerald snake glasses of Francis de Lara is the 2nd show-stopping jewellery eyeglasses I have actually found considering that Artistar While BinaGoenka’s snake style was a pure splash of rubies twisting around my wrist. Can I have them as a set?

Day 3 Jewellery Highlights: Messika, Dior Jewellery and designers of Objet d’Emotion

Entering the Messika discussion of their brand-new Born To Be Wild high jewellery collection, I seemed like I was entering a desert land of sand and rocks with tumbleweed sweeping around the shimmering diamonds. Drawing motivation from the huge and brilliant North American desert and the Wild West, Messika gems commemorates the forces of nature and self-discovering escapism.

Next on our gleaming list of jewellery discoveries is Dior’s incredible analysis of gems, committed to the 20 th anniversary of DiorJoaillerie Pronounced as J’aime Dior, the Gem Dior collection by Victoire de Castellane is a juicy splash of colour and a vibrant statement of love to diamonds, rubies, garnets, sapphires, emeralds, tsavorites, spinels, tanzanites and paraiba tourmalines …

I’m resilient with enjoyment at the idea of Objet d’Emotion, a great jewellery shopping principle established by my dear ValeryDemure Selecting just the very best brand names with strong visual appeals and unique signatures, it was a pleasure to find brand-new styles from a few of my preferred female designers, consisting of AliceCicolini, FrancescaVilla, MelanieGeorgacopoulos, SharonKhazzam and YaelSonia And what a remarkable view of Paris from the roofing system of Hotel de Crillon! Such a reward!

Day 4 Jewellery Highlights: Chaumet, Piaget, designers cooperation with Atelier Swarovski and David Morris

Starting my last early morning of Paris Haute Couture Week by appreciating the skies … of Les Ciels de Chaumet high jewellery collection! Chaumet masterfully translates the vastness and ever-changing look of the skies by offering it form in extraordinary gems in 4 Chapters: Les Caprices du Ciel looks like the ever-changing look of the rainy weather condition; Les Couleurs du Ciel commemorates the colour combination that the sun displays throughout the daytime, while Les Fulgurances du Ciel is a homage to the diamond shimmering sky we just witness as night falls. Yet one can not picture the sky without its lovely birds, Les Habitants du Ciel.

A fast walk under the boiling-hot sun of Paris to the discussion of Piaget, a Maison which has actually made the analysis of light its signature with its 2017 and 2018 high jewellery collections Continuing the custom, the brand-new Golden Oasis 2019 collection checks out the extreme sun lighting the curves of a spectacular desert landscape through 3 distinct elements: The Play of Lights burst into colourless and yellow diamonds, Mozambican rubies and pink spinels; The Native Bloom honours the desert plants by dressing the gems in lavish greens of Colombian and Zambian emeralds, malachites and paraiba tourmalines; and my individual favourite, the Desert Mineral chapter is influenced by rocks and crystal swimming pools, depicted in spessartite garnets, Akoya white pearls, Madagascar blue sapphires and black opals.

Aiming to promote the mindful option of customers, I have actually participated in the discussion of SwarovskiAtelier Fine Jewellery in cooperation with StephenWebster, PrinceDimitri and Pen élope Cruz, who developed their gems with Swarovski CreatedDiamonds Learn the distinction in between manufactured and natural diamonds in my short article. I likewise had an opportunity to find the biggest laboratory grown diamonds to date in the Penelope Cruz one-off pear drops jewellery set, covering 3.05 carats!

Finishing my day with a tip to remain real to my roots, I went to the London- born jewellery brand name DavidMorris and the brand-new high jewellery collection, EnchantedIsle Inspired by the care-free escapism of Mykonos Island, brand-new styles shine with the colours of the crystal clear sea and plentiful nature of the island. My preferred gem of the collection is the stunning yellow diamond flower ear cuff, the personification of contemporary sophisticated and edgy womanhood.
