Dior has created a new fine jewellery and timepiece collection designed by Victoire de Castellane, the Creative Director of Dior Joaillerie.
Gem Dior includes seven watches and eleven pieces of jewellery and features colourful stones and atypical geometry. The collection takes its name from the eponymous high jewellery collection launched two years ago. “Gem” is a play on the French phrase ‘J’aime’ meaning ‘I love’.
The timepiece’s bracelet was inspired by Monsieur Dior himself and the way he pinned fabric swatches from his haute couture shows onto sheets of paper. Asymmetrical and clasp-less, it is designed to be worn as an open cuff, creating a unique look for the wrist. It is available in six other versions including steel, black mother-of-pearl and pink gold. The seventh piece is the most striking, made of strata of ornamental gems (malachite, lapis lazuli, carnelian, pink opal, tiger’s eye) forming a vibrant burst of colour for your wrist.
Gem Dior also extends to an irresistible range of jewellery. Blues and greens are the main hues with Malachite and Lapis lazuli featuring alongside diamonds on a cuff and earrings. In a more monochrome register, you can choose from rings, bangles and earrings in yellow, pink and white gold, set with diamonds. The deliberately misaligned links brings out the distinctive design of Gem Dior.
