New capsule collection of Dior jewellery: on trend for spring

Diorama Precieuse is a stylish new capsule collection of Dior jewellery inspired by a couture dress designed by Christian Dior more than half a century ago.

The House of Dior ushers in a new capsule collection of Dior jewellery this month comprising six fine jewellery pieces bursting with coloured gemstones.

Inspired by the Diorama dress designed by Christian Dior for his Spring/Summer 1951 Haute Couture collection, Victoire de Castellane has recreated the twisted ribbons of the gown in precious metals on Dior rings and asymmetric Dior earrings. The two jewellery designs are available in three different combinations: pink morganite and diamonds on rose gold; amethyst and emeralds on yellow gold; and white gold teamed with crystalline aquamarine and diamonds. 

Proving that Dior's fashion credentials are second to none, the open-ended design of the ring is one of the hottest jewellery trends this season, while the asymmetric Dior earrings tap into the fashion for mismatched jewels.

The Diorama Precieuse capsule collection of Dior jewellery follows the launch at last year's Biennale des Antiquaires of the Archi Dior high jewellery collection, inspired by the Maison's couture gowns. Each jewel was named after an iconic dress, with design details such as pleats, drapes and belts reinterpreted through precious stones and metals.

Jewellery has been an integral part of the House of Dior's aesthetic ever since Christian Dior added jewels to his second couture collection, the Corolle line, in 1947. Back then they were costume jewels that enhanced the look and silhouette of his creations. Christian Dior's jewellery aesthetic lives on today, now crafted from altogether more precious stones such as diamonds, rubies, emeralds, sapphires, morganites, or aquamarines. The artistic dialogue between Christian Dior and Victoire de Castellane is brought to life in the Parisian ateliers, where each couture jewel is handmade by skilled artisans.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
