New and noted: The latest jewellery launches from Dior, Van Cleef & Arpels, Atelier Swarovski, Damiani and more
It’s A Bling Fest
Believe it or not, it's already December. In less than a month we'll bid 2019 goodbye and welcome a new year, nay, a new decade. But first, we celebrate. Christmas, that is! And yes, it is time to get crazy and go wild with new bling. And then it's New Year's! So maybe you'll want to keep an eye out for something new to welcome 2020.
Take your pick from shimmering short-list of the hottest new launches.
This French maison celebrates its 95th anniversary with a rainbow gem-set version of its iconic Belle Époque necklace. Multi coloured sapphires representing all seven colours line up neatly on all sides of this cross-inside-a-cross. It's a limited edition, only 95 pieces. Perfect for the religious types who still want their bling.
The Belle Époque necklace will be on sale at Damiani Boutiques and also on the e-commerce website, www.damiani.com.
Van Cleef & Arpels
The Ludo is one of Van Cleef & Arpels' earliest icons. Its flexible mesh bracelet now exhibits a honeycomb motif and grain-set gems. In yellow, pink or white gold, it offers a quirky interplay between noble metal and coloured stones. Lovers of vintage jewellery will be especially thrilled by a fourth model, distinguished by briquette-shaped mesh that elegantly drapes over the wrist like fabric.
Shop the Ludo collection at the Van Cleef & Arpels boutique at Ion Orchard #01-26
These pieces designed in collaboration with Penelope Cruz, Susan Rockefeller and Catherine Provost also contribute to charity. Proceeds from the collections go to The Nature Conservancy and the St. Vincent & the Grenadines Environment Fund. Pieces evoke the cosmos, our beautiful green earth, and glorious sea life. Great for the fashion-forward pro-environmentalists among us.
The Atelier Swarovski Spring/Summer 2020 collections will be available in Swarovski stories and independent retailers worldwide and online at atelierswarovski.com from January 2020.
Rose Céleste illustrates Christian Dior's passion for the divinatory arts. On each of these pendants, you'll find a moon etched in mother-of-pearl, with a constellation of white gold stars set against a black onyx sky. But turn it over and you'll find a majestic sun that shines with yellow gold rays. If you're a Gemini, this is meant for you.

Jeux de Liens Harmony Medallions presents a medallion in two asymmetrical parts connected by the maison's iconic cross motif. It's got an adjustable chain and of course it goes without saying these necklaces are perfectly compatible with the other Chaumet lines. Sentimental girls will appreciate how it's designed to include a secret message engraved on the back.

These two-row rings and bracelets take stacking to the next level. Idylle Blossom is a slightly more subdued variation in terms of colour as compared to the B.Blossom. But it's very precious and elegant, with options in pink, yellow and white gold, sometimes paved with diamonds. For lazy girls who still want to be on-trend every day.
The Idylle Blossom Collection will be available from January 2020 onwards at Louis Vuitton Marina Bay Sands Island Maison, Ngee Ann City and ION Orchard. Prices from $6,000.
