The total renovation of Dior’s headquarters at 30 Avenue Montaigne in Paris inspired artistic director Victoire de Castellane to imagine the brand’s newest high jewellery collection, Dior Rose. This building has seen the addition of a gallery to exhibit their stunning jewels, creating a new space called Planet Dior, as well as a rooftop garden.
The brand has long used the rose motif, inspired by Christian Dior’s love of the flower, and the new collection contains a total of 116 pieces which “bloom” through four floral-inspired designs: romantic rose, stained-glass rose, futuristic rose and abstract couture rose.
The romantic rose parure, composed of a necklace, bracelet, earrings and ring, features blue sapphires from Myanmar set at an angle, surrounded by budding pink sapphires and emerald-cut diamonds.
Much like stained glass windows, the stained glass rose items celebrate the transparency of gems including Mozambique rubies and Colombian emeralds, framing them with delicately curved or pointed petals, and rubellite leaves.
