Tiffany & Co.’s new high jewellery edit is a magical dream come true!
Called the ‘Colors of Nature’, the American luxury jeweller has released its 2021 Blue Book collection that celebrates the fascinating beauty of nature. Spotlighting four key themes of earth, land, sea and sky, the jewelled pieces are a melange of soft and vivid colours, dotted oh-so-delicately with sparkling gemstones.
Tiffany & Co.’s latest high jewellery takes a leaf out of French jewellery designer Jean Schlumberger’s colourful and imaginative moodboard that elevates elemental designs to extraordinary designs.
Earth is blessed with a vast spectrum of colours – this thought is reimagined into this stunning necklace, encrusted with seven distinctive, colourful gemstones over 278 carats. The jewellery features cushion-cut and emerald-cut aquamarines, tanzanites, tourmalines, morganite and rubellite.
Jean Schlumberger’s Baguette Fringe neckpiece comes to life with 23-carat worth custom-cut baguette diamonds and 62-carat round brilliant diamonds. To lend it a seamless fringed finish, the diamonds are handcrafted into strands linked to an asymmetrical platinum frame.
Mimicking the royal green hue of emeralds, these long dangle earrings are studded with blocks of sparkly diamonds and the rarest elements of unenhanced Colombian emeralds.
Designed to be styled in multiple ways, this two-strand necklace sees over 22-carat worth round esteemed Russian demantoid garnets that evokes lush green hues of flora. The frame is enhanced with 34-carat mixed cut diamonds, giving it an unmissable lustre.
What sets this jewelled piece apart is its unique design that sees the soft red-tinted tourmalines wrapped on one side, while the other side is contrasted with shimmering baguette diamonds.
Another beautifully captured element of nature, Tiffany & Co. introduces Schlumberger’s Five Leaves earrings recreated with striking pink-hued rubellites and diamonds.
This exquisite jewelled turtle clings on to the wearer in form of a brooch or a pendant, reminding one of the pacific blue ocean and the diverse aquatic fauna. When looked at closely, a carefully demarcated negative space emerges between the studded diamonds, adding a certain lightness and definition to the jewellery.
Animating the petal-like structure of sea anemone, this high-jewellery brooch is embellished with sapphires, tsavorites garnets and diamonds, all creating a stunning medley of blue, green and hints of glassy white.
The deep blue ocean meets the evil eye – this Jean Schlumberger designed Surreal Shell necklace is crafted in platinum with its curved diamond shells that fall delicately and asymmetrically below the collarbone. The gleaming sapphires appear, totalling over 49 carats.
A captivating colour palette of purple, golden and white, this regal butterfly brooch is adorned with custom-cut sapphires, diamonds and framed with 18-carat yellow gold. A flawlessly designed symmetry of butterfly wings conjures up visuals of a real butterfly perching on your outfit.
Schlumberger’s signature works of satiny paillonné enamel are reimagined into this bird-shaped brooch that highlights the vivid combination of soft green and celestial blue. Paillonné is a 19th-century art technique of deftly placing paillons (thin sheets) of silver and gold foils between layers of coloured enamel.
