Haute Couture Week returned to Paris from January 22 to 25, taking over the City of Light with daring fashion creations and impeccable craftsmanship. It is during this event that the most prestigious jewelry maisons and independent designers also unveiled their new latest jewelry masterpieces in the showrooms and boutiques of the Place Vendôme, the historic home of high jewelry. The pieces are defined by a mastery of material, groundbreaking design innovation, and rarity of  stones.

The fine craftsmanship of couture and jewelry collide in Dior’s latest high jewelry collection, which includes 79 pieces inspired by the delicacy of embroidery and lace. White diamonds in a lace-like fashion provide a dazzling backdrop for a selection of rubies, emeralds, sapphires, rubellites, and tanzanites.

For the fourth installment of Boucheron’s Histoire de Style collection, the house’s creative director, Claire Choisne, drew inspiration from the ceremonial attire of the maison’s most prolific customers, including royal families. Medals, buttons, embroideries, and aiguillettes are just some of the traditional motifs that have been reinterpreted with a modern twist, transformed with the use of rock crystal and diamonds. “I decided to deconstruct the symbols of power to reappropriate them,” explains Choisne. “This collection is designed like a precious kit that may be worn in a multitude of ways, choosing among various elements to create an individual style.”

Un Air de Chaumet conjures the freedom of birds soaring through the expansive sky while paying homage to the founder of the maison, who was Empress Josephine’s official jeweler, and his son, who shared the sovereign’s fascination with these creatures. The Plumes d’or tiara is the centerpiece of the collection, featuring an alternating brushed rose gold and diamond-set white gold feather with a 2,30-carat pear-shaped diamond sitting at the middle. There is also a group of delightful hair ornaments that can be worn as brooches.

A fusion of contemporary design and timeless elegance, Graff’s latest collection features intricate motifs with graphic, abstract lines and bold asymmetrical arrangements. Encompassing necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings, the collection features an astonishing assortment of magnificent large stones including diamonds, rubies, emeralds, and sapphires. The star is surely the colossal 118.17-carat, cushion-cut, unheated Sri Lankan sapphire set on a bangle with 39.7 carats of round and baguette white diamonds.

Brazilian jeweler Fernando Jorge is presenting his latest high jewelry collection from January 22 to February 2, at Sotheby’s New Bond Street in London, following its debut in New York late last year. Jorge’s unique pieces reflect the designer’s trailblazing vision, pushing the boundaries of the craft and challenging what we understand as precious by combining unusual materials like river pebbles, marble, and fossilized amber with diamonds and gold.

Presented in London, De Beers’s new Forces of Nature collection comprises eight one-of-a-kind solitaire diamond rings with accompanying jackets or crowns that allow the pieces to be transformed by the wearer. The range was created in honor of Southern Africa’s majestic natural beauty—both of the diamonds used and of the native wildlife that De Beers aims to conserve through their Building Forever program. “The eight featured animals are an ode to the natural intoxicating beauty of the African continent, whose earth yields jaw-dropping natural treasures,” says Céline Assimon, De Beers Jewelers CEO. “When designing the rings, we had no constraints: we were guided by the individual character of eight extraordinary diamonds.”
