High fashion jewelry houses such as Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co. and Cartier, showed their most exciting pieces at the July couture shows.
One piece that really drew our attention was a Louis Vuitton “Apotheosis” cuff made from onyx stone, and outlined in white gold and accent diamonds. In the center of the cuff, the white gold is edged in diamonds, forming three “V” shapes, each one engulfing the next. Inside the smallest “V” and surrounded by diamonds is a tsavorite garnet prominently standing out with its bold green color.
Another eye-catching piece, from Tiffany, was a wide bangle in platinum, with princess-cut diamonds set so that the inter-space forms a diamond shape, and giving a more airy feel to the bracelet.
While Tiffany went for artistry, Cartier used a large Colombian emerald, surrounded by an octagonal shape made up of diamonds and white gold, to go for glam. Sprouting from the emerald, is an anything-but-ordinary chain, with rectangular links made up of diamonds, which transitions half way around to green beads.
