The House of Dior is eponymous with all things elegant — and what could be more elegant than bijoux? Drawing on the maison's deep history with jewellery (Monsieur Dior himself dictated that his designs should be adorned with jewels), Victoire de Castellane dreamed up a collection based on the undulating ribbons used in couture dresses. Aptly titled 'Dior précieuse', the collection consists of three rings and three earrings. Amethysts, emeralds, aquamarines and morganites are set at the ends of a rippling couture ribbon made from gold, and are varied in size to create an asymmetrical effect.
