Van Cleef & Arpels Perlée Collection

Van Cleef & Arpels is synonymous with elegance and sophistication. So when it rolls out reiterations of its brand signatures, transformed through a trove of diamonds, you know the results are going to be nothing but captivating. From the Perlée collection that offers a play of light through gleaming gold beads and twinkling diamonds, to the Snowflake collection crowned with a pendant brooch that drips Old World charm, the magical romance of its creations are captured through the talented eye of photographer Olivia Bee in a series of images that brings the diamond fairy tale to life.

Dior’s Rose Céleste Jewellery Collection


Featuring stylised sun and moon motifs, the designs pay homage to Monsieur Dior’s superstitious nature (it’s said he never made a decision without first consulting clairvoyant Madame Delahaye), with onyx, mother-of-pearl and diamonds thrown into the mix.

Panthère de Cartier

It’s been a fixture in the Cartier universe since 1914, but it wasn’t until 2005 that the Maison unveiled a gold ring that introduced a more graphic version of its beloved Panthère de Cartier. Since then, the stylised range has continued to seduce with strong angular silhouettes that are at once fierce and feminine. This year’s editions are no different. Inspired by the industrial lines of the Eiffel Tower, these filigree numbers will beguile Francophiles and design lovers alike.
