From Tiffany & Co. To Bvlgari, Feast Your Eyes On The Fine Jewels Redefining Old School Luxury

Redefining old school luxury: fine jewellery releases that outshine not with size, but an unexpected mix of playful shapes and coloured precious stones
Tiffany & Co.
One of Tiffany & Co.’s most iconic collections, the Return To Tiffany line gets a whimsical garden-inspired update with the addition of insect and floral motifs contrasted against bold coloured stones. Return To Tiffany Love Bugs 18K rose gold and silver rings with quartz and topaz, Tiffany Enchant platinum brooch with sapphires and diamonds (held in hand), and matching platinum necklace with diamonds, Tiffany & Co.

A further tribute to Rome, Bvlgari’s Monete collection now boasts long pendants featuring ancient Roman coins set within  octagonal frames – a popular form in the city’s architecture. Monete 18K pink gold necklace with malachite and diamonds, Bvlgari. Wool trench coat and satin shirt dress, Bottega Veneta  Dior
Dior’s Rose Dior Bagatelle is an ode to Monsieur Dior’s favourite flower, distilled through fine jewellery creative director Victoire de Castellane’s love for ornate details, asymmetry and wild shocks of colour. Rose Dior Bagatelle 18K white gold ring with diamonds and sapphires, matching necklace with diamonds, and wool sweater, Dior Chaumet
The pretty bow knot motif of Chaumet gets edgy in the Insolence collection, designed to look undone then intertwined with a rope-inspired gold chain. Insolence 18K white and pink gold drop earrings with diamonds and matching necklace, Chaumet. Wool and duchesse satin tuxedo jacket, Hermes. Chanel
Besides the classic styles and new open bracelets featured here, Chanel’s Coco Crush line now includes a two-finger ring in a modern mix of white and yellow gold.

Still one of Cartier’s most adventurous and fun collections to date: the Cactus de Cartier that puts a sophisticated sculptural spin on the succulent, with clusters of gold “needles” lending a tactile touch. Cactus de Cartier earrings and matching necklaces with and without lapis lazuli, all in 18K yellow gold with diamonds, Cartier. Viscose-blend tunic, Gucci Van Cleef & Arpels
The youthful Two Butterfly collection from Van Cleef & Arpels – with the pretty insect designed to look as if it’s just gently landed – now also sports the rich blue of lapis lazuli. Two Butterfly 18K yellow and white gold earrings with diamonds and lapis lazuli, and matching open ring, Van Cleef & Arpels. Cashmere top, Hermes. Piaget
How Piaget has made its distinctly graphic yet everyday-friendly Possessions line even more desirable: Introduce new stones and heftier bangles.

Silk and duchesse satin sheath dress, Hermes
