Fine Jewellery and Timepieces Collection

These children’s games are precious, and the memory evoked by the designer saw this playfulness transformed into colored stones.
With green beryl, peridot, aquamarine, tanzanite, chrysoberyl, pink tourmaline, rubellite, Victoire de Castellane’s
favorite colored stones are all here. “They come to life,»”
she says, as she shows off their sparkles and nuances. “Color plays a starring role. The way in which they’re assembled creates a sense of equilibrium that means that no one color dominates another. So that each one has an equal chance to shine”.
The designer created a color cadence in which the deep shades harmonize with watery tones in different cuts, sizes and mounts. These plays of rhythm and construction appear to render the jewels mobile, and it took all the ingenious savoir-faire of the best haute joaillerie ateliers in Paris to reproduce this movement through the lexicon of gems and precious metals.
In the continuing spirit of paying homage to Christian Dior’s childhood in Normandy, Victoire de Castellane has also designed D de Dior “Granville”, nine timepieces in white, yellow or rose gold. Among them, this rose-gold watch, its bezel set with brilliant-cut yellow sapphires and diamond crown. The dial is in turquoise and the pale pink patent-leather strap is attached by a rose-gold ardillon buckle decorated with diamonds. These joyous new creations are an echo of the Granville carnival’s festive atmosphere, which colored the couturier’s childhood, as he designed costumes for himself and his friends.
