For international haute jewellery brands, the month of July has been a bright and colourful one as they unveiled their latest collections that abound with some of the most intense and majestic gems.
With different design inspirations and approaches, each collection is dramatic, striking and irresistible in their own way.
Bulgari’s Barocko High Jewellery Collection
The Italian luxury brand has always been lavish in its usage of bold, sizable gemstones. Their pieces are chromatic explosions, to say the least, but yet the deft designs bring form, function and aesthetics together in harmony.
Their latest collection captures the grandeur of Rome, the brand’s home city while taking inspiration from Baroque art and architecture. The collection exudes the drama and exuberance of the erstwhile era, while employing pink and blue sapphires, emeralds, Paraiba tourmalines, citrines, peridots, rubellite, amethysts and aquamarines in striking combinations.
True to the brand’s ‘Mai Troppo’ campaign for 2020, the collection is an ode to the exuberance of life.
It encompasses bib-style necklaces, lace collars, sautoirs, earrings and rings that are a feast for the eyes.
Piaget’s Wings of Light collection
Swiss brand Piaget presents a whimsical rendition of nature’s elements in the Wings of Light collection. Through a range of delightful watches and fine jewellery, the brand takes you on an adventure through an exotic escape flush with wild plants, majestic animals and shimmering sunsets.
The collection is further segmented into three parts: Enchanted Flight, Magnificent Haven and Ecstatic Dance.
The Majestic Plumage necklace from the Enchanted flight series features the plumes of a bird of paradise soaring against the setting sun and is centred on a rare 7.49-carat Paraiba tourmaline.
The Secret Cenote watch cuff captures the pristine blues and verdant foliage of a tropical paradise through deep blue sapphires, opals and diamonds.
The Rainbow Light earrings are skillfully crafted using the Maitre d’Art technique of marquetry which uses fractured mother-of-pearl pieces to mimic the soothing hues of the sky at sunset.
