New transformers

The idea of ​​transforming jewelry itself is not new and is widely used in high jewelry art. A necklace that changes length and splits into a pair of bracelets, as well as its pendant that turns into a brooch, always look more interesting and original than the traditional boring parure. But this time, the jewelers struck with very unusual metamorphoses. Boucheron's Claire Shuan has designed a seven-piece necklace in the shape of a huge snowflake made of rock crystal and diamonds, from which you can unfasten a ring, earrings, three hair ornaments, a brooch and a fibula.

Transformations became the main theme of the Le Secret Van Cleef & Arpels collection. The well-known ballerina brooch turns into a swan, the links of the bracelet fold like an accordion and form a ring, in the large Séraphîta ring you can rearrange the central part - a diamond replaces the blue Madagascar sapphire - and the meaning changes in the secret message engraved on the back of the ring.

A technically complex, but spectacular transformation was invented by the Cartier craftsmen: the scales of which the Eurythmie bracelet is composed can turn in different directions - either the "daytime" diamond pavé, the "night" lapis lazuli. The ingenious design allows you to change and fix them with one movement of the hand.

Another popular metamorphosis is large gems that can be attached to a necklace or, conversely, removed and stored in a safe. Chopard and Chaumet offer removable emeralds, while Messika offers a pear-cut colorless diamond.

Unusual materials

The principle “noble precious materials for high jewelry art” no longer works, at least not for everyone. Jewelers experiment, discovering new materials for themselves (and for us). Giampiero Bodino turned to titanium for the first time, Chopard and Susan Cees turned to aluminum (it is more susceptible to staining), Victoire de Castellane used rhinestone, Cindy Chao used silver, and Claire Chuan from Boucheron used aspen wood pre-patinated. A fancy black pear-shaped diamond shines in the Cartier ring, an infrequent guest in the gemological collection of the French brand.

Asymmetric earrings

This trend is also more than one year old, but in the latest high jewelery collections there has been a boom in unpaired earrings. In addition, they appeared at the most "correct" and traditional jewelers, who previously did not allow themselves this, for example, at Chaumet (earrings with sapphires of different shades) or Piaget (of different shapes). Victoire de Castellane is the record holder in this type of creativity: in the Dior à Versailles - Coté Jardins collection of 16 pairs of earrings, none is symmetrical. “They are not married, they just walk in pairs,” jokes the designer Dior Joaillerie.

Millennials

The two previous trends are addressed primarily to a young audience who are bored with traditional ideas and correct symmetry - however, they are in no hurry to completely abandon diamonds. As part of the high collection Flying Cloud, Chanel presented a quite budgetary Sailor Suit set with buttons: ear cuffs cost € 42,000, and a necklace - € 110,000. Hermès has expanded the Chaine d'Ancre Punk collection with new youth bracelets and rocker necklaces with chains and pins. House Bulgari presented a collection of high jewellery in Venice and in Paris arranged kinovecherinku in the Galeries Lafayette: its main characters have become gold-plated ceramic cup of popcorn and suspension Diva of delicate pink opal with diamonds.

Rhinestone

If for Victoire de Castellane from Dior, rhinestone is a novelty, but for Claire Chouan from Boucheron it has long been one of the supporting materials that allows to convey the play of light. In this high jewelry season, Giampiero Bodino decided to work with crystal: transparent balls, better than diamonds, imitate air bubbles dissolved in the water element of Mediterraneo. At Cartierthere is experience in working with hard rock crystal: in 1930, in the Paris branch of the jewelry house, bracelets were created from platinum, old-cut diamonds, half-discs and beads from rock crystal. American actress Gloria Swanson purchased two of these bracelets and starred in them in the films "Perfect Understanding" (1933) and "Sunset Boulevard" (1950). The graphic Twisting Light bracelet from the current high collection of Resonances de Cartier vaguely resembles an 85-year-old piece.

Emeralds

The green stone, which made itself known in full voice last year, still dominates the minds of jewelry designers. For over a year, Carolina Scheufele has been looking for 11 Colombian emeralds (weighing over 100 carats) for a unique necklace. Chaumet dedicated the English set Pastorale Anglaise to emeralds: the necklace contains a Colombian stone weighing 28.98 carats, certified by the mining company Muzo, as well as 30 cabochons of Zambian emeralds. The ring is adorned with an 11.74 carat Muzo emerald; the total weight of the Colombian emeralds in the earrings is almost seven carats. There are many emeralds in the Resonances de Cartier collection: the most impressive of them is the 140-carat cabochon in the Hyperbole transformer, which easily converts from a necklace to a tiara and back.
