ROMEO AND JULIET
Inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Van Cleef & Arpels’ new collection of fanciful jewellery recreates the world of Verona in a shimmer of precious stones. Balcone earrings (right) in emerald and white gold with tsavorite garnets and diamonds depict the scene in which love was first declared, while the Bud of Love earrings (left) featuring two briolette-cut emeralds with black spinels and diamonds on white gold, represent the blossoming love between the tragic duo.
COURTING WITH COUTURE
Our doomed lovers look radiant in this pair of clips, which bring to life a romantic scene. Romeo is dashing in a blue tunic of sapphires and lapis lazuli and stockings in white gold and black laquer; while a polished gold cape attached with a yellow diamond conceals his diamond-studded sword. Juliet’s polished gold dress shimmers with orange sapphires, garnets, rubies and diamonds, embellished with gadroons; a vision of loveliness ahead of their secret marriage.
Bvlgari’s spirit animal comes to life in the Serpenti Misteriosi Secret Watch, a seductive timepiece that coils around the wrist in an 18-karat rose gold bracelet set with round brilliant-cut diamonds and baguette-cut amethysts, with a mother of pearl dial and hypnotic pear-shaped amethyst eyes.
Created by hand using Japanese decorative techniques, the Harry Winston Midnight Yozora Automatic was created with fountain pen company Nakaya. The timepieces depict the entrance to Harry Winston’s Fifth Avenue Salon, using Japanese urushi lacquer and raden mother of pearl, and the ‘sprinkled picture’ art of maki-e, with an emerald-cut diamond at 12 o’clock. The dazzling watches come with matching Nakaya fountain pen.
Bringing together the worlds of high jewellery and cinema, Bvlgari’s Cinemagia collection is truly Oscar-worthy; a daring portfolio of unique pieces that pay tribute to the silver screen. Unusual colour combinations and daring gemstone cuts are the defining features of this exceptional range, which includes pieces like these Sweet Bows earrings; surprising droplets of artistry that enchant and delight.
