This one is for the high jewellery lovers. Paris Haute Couture Week is known for the unveiling of the latest high jewellery collections of the world’s most prestigious jewellery houses.
Here are some of our favourite pieces.
Our favourite pieces are from Italian high jewellery maker Giampiero Bodino’s Mediterranea collection, which is inspired by Mediterranean summers and is full of pieces that speak of passion, romance, the ocean and long summer nights. A pure delight for the eyes.
Van Cleef & Arpels featured a highly whimsical collection titled Le Secret. It is fun and full of colour and surprises. A lot of the collection’s pieces can be transformed and have secret messages or hidden treasures in them. We absolutely love the playfulness of this collection.
