A select few managed to see the new Blossom High Jewelery collection in full, in all its splendor. And even of those 25 jewels that were exhibited at the Louis Vuitton atelier, above the brand's jewelry boutique in Place Vendome, many have already gone to private collections. And all because in the house of Louis Vuitton the time has come for the lush bloom of Monogram Flower - an emblem invented by Georges Vuitton at the end of the 19th century.
For many years now, the brand's designers have been experimenting with the signature monogram flower: either they come up with a complex cut for diamonds with 61 or 77 facets, then they create geometric abstractions of Monogram Infinie, or they play around with sharp and round petals in the spirit of Art Deco. This year, the focus is on large bright stones, which have been collected specifically for the Blossom collection for seven years. It features Ceylon and Burmese sapphire rings, each weighing over 20 carats, and a 53-carat Australian opal cabochon necklace that is impossible to take your eyes off. One of the petals of the monogram flower is made of a huge green beryl weighing 43 carats, the other three are made of chalcedony combined with calibrated baguette diamonds.Gemologists have found an unusual tsavorite Merelani from Tanzania in the shade of mint and lime - it is used for the first time in high jewelery. The stone weighing 29.75 carats became the heart of a flower made of diamonds and hot enamel. He appears in two pieces of jewelry from the set - in a ring and in a pendant to a pearl necklace.
It is important that bright stones in no way distract attention from the verified geometry of the jewelry, but on the contrary give it expressiveness, especially considering the original color combinations. A sunny mandarin garnet surrounded by diamond petals rests on an onyx cabochon; in a bracelet, a square-cut green tsavorite garnet is adjacent to a moonstone in round petals. The many times repeated motif of a flower of shimmering opals formed long earrings with large juicy drops of “strawberry” spinels at the ends - two stones have a total weight of 23 carats.
Yes, this is a collection of high jewelery pieces that are unique in their kind. And at the same time, they have neither ceremonial bombast, nor voluminous heavy structures - earrings, bracelets, necklaces, they look light and at ease. “These pieces are designed to be worn as often as possible,” explained Hamdi Chatti, vice president of watchmaking. Many Louis Vuitton customers have already appreciated this.>
