Throughout his life Christian Dior had a passion for roses. From the moment his parents moved into “Villa Les Rhumbs”, in Normandy, until the day of his passing, roses influenced much of his work.
Taking note, Maison Dior has released two red carpet worthy jewelry collections inspired by the designer’s favorite flower, designed by Dior’s creative director of fine jewelry, Victoire de Castellane.
The “Bois de Rose” collection is devoted to the stem rather than the actual flower. It features diamond embellishments on top of yellow and white gold stems. Victoire drew her inspiration not only from Dior’s love of flowers and gardening, but also from her own love of the fairytale Sleeping Beauty.
The “Rose Dior Pre Catelan” collection uses coral as its defining embellishment. Diamonds of various sizes are set against brilliant coral and yellow gold, creating a natural and organic jewelry collection.
The collections were unveiled at the Dior Atelier during Paris Fashion Week in March and deliver to Dior Boutiques this June.
