Every girl needs a jewellery box brimming with trinkets from Causeway. But what she really dreams of is a classic piece of jewellery that’ll last her a lifetime. HOT puts together five ethereal cocktail jewellery collections that’ll transform every woman from drab to diva.
For 2016, Bulgari high jewellery savours its very Italian personality – the blues of the Mediterranean, the pinks of Roman sunset, the golds of an ancient age – as it captures the colours, light, and expressivity of its homeland into three facets of inspiration: daring Italian Extravaganza, highlighting the colourful extravagance of the Italian culture, romantic Mediterranean Eden, presenting vivacious modern designs shaped into artistic forms, and mythical Roman Heritage, featuring designs inspired by Rome’s beauty and elegance.
The spectacular Chopard Haute Joaillerie collections are designed and crafted at the very heart of the Geneva-based Maison. The two new jewellery pieces to emerge from the Chopard Haute Joaillerie ateliers highlight diamonds in a variety of forms. These sparkling pear, marquise, oval and brilliant-cut gems meet and mingle to form two stunningly original creations: a long 18-carat white gold necklace composed of two diamond-set lacework motifs hemmed by brilliant-cut diamonds, complemented by matching earrings.
Luxury jewellery house de Grisogono brought in a range of high jewels representing a variety of periods and movements at the recently concluded Biennale des Antiquaires in Paris. The Folies collection combines styles ranging from the Renaissance to the present day, honouring the accomplishments of pioneering artists. Set with diamonds of extremely high quality, it features exceptionally white, almost colourless gems of rare clarity, with carat weights that effectively highlight the incomparable radiance of original cuts.
The Fabergé Imperial Collection is inspired by the jewelled splendour of the Imperial Romanov court, and evokes the rhythms of the Russian seasons. The jewels demonstrate an intuitive interplay of rare coloured precious gems, diamonds and pearls with superlative hand artisanship, to capture and reflect the changing light, colours and atmosphere of each season. Belle Époque elements like garlands, scrolls, ribbons, tassels, crests, crowns and Russian tiaras bestow refined opulence upon this collection of personal possessions and gifts, illuminating the captivating world of Fabergé.
The Starburst collection by CaratLane interprets the beauty and celestial energy of a starlit night. Moving beyond the usual, each design in this collection brings distinctive pieces with diamond cuts such as marquises and pears to create jewellery pieces that can help you light up any look. The Starburst collection is crafted in 18 KT, white gold and brings fancy-cut diamonds with beautiful depths and patterns that capture the light variations at its best. Intensely individual and expressive, the designs truly reflect the inner beauty of every woman.
