For the 20th anniversary of Dior Joaillerie, Victoire de Castellane has created Gem Dior, the largest High Jewellery collection the House has ever unveiled.
Last month, in the heart of Venice, the House glorified, through the Tiepolo Ball, the cultures and savoir-faire of France and Italy. With a new chapter and a chromatic fairytale, this collection was above all conceived by the Artistic Director as a unique story of stones and colours. On June 11th thirty-eight parures, more matching jewellery sets, from the new Gem Dior collection by Victoire de Castellane were presented.
To enhance the parures even further, they were shown alongside nineteen exclusive creations by Maria Grazia Chiuri. It was a celebration honouring a love of art and harmony, a crowning event for Dior Joaillerie’s 20th anniversary.
For this exceptional anniversary, Victoire de Castellane created Gem Dior, the House’s most extensive High Jewellery collection to date. Comprised of no less than ninety-nine pieces, it explores unprecedented harmonies, subtle plays of polychromy, colour gradations and monochromes. The collection includes diamonds, rubies, emeralds, sapphires and the remarkable precious stones of which Victoire de Castellane is so fond of.
These unique, architectural and abstract jewels are illuminated by the juxtaposition of gemstones that appear to settle randomly on the skin. This raw, studied irregularity highlights all the more extraordinary mastery of the High Jewellery workshops. Presented in this city dedicated to art, an ode to colour and light, the Gem Dior collection revealed all its radiance when paired with ball gowns by Maria Grazia Chiuri.
With these exceptional events taking place in the heart of the Italian city, a timeless symbol of the arts and festivity, Dior celebrates the essential force of creativity and enchantment borne of these precious artistic unions. To find out more about Gem Dior, visit www.dior.com.
