Dior Joaillerie’s Tie & Dior High Jewellery collection blends abstract motifs and textures with a medley of coloured gemstones and exotic pearls in a masterful interpretation of an artisanal textile dyeing technique.
Tie & Dior pays tribute to the maison’s inventiveness by reimagining the tie-dye. Comprising over 100 coloured pieces designed by Victoire de Castellane, creative director of Dior Joaillerie, the free-spirited collection reveals a new dimension in her creativity and showcases the maison’s savoir faire.
Like a hypnotic trail of ink spreading out on paper, the gemstone colour gradient here evokes movement. Pearls in an array of hues – from candy pink to pistachio green – accentuate the intensity of the precious stones, while adding texture with their silky lustre.
The audacious creations showcase a variety of exquisite gems in different sizes. Rubies, sapphires, emeralds and grey spinels in round, oval, pear and marquise cuts are artfully combined in alluring colour gradations – from blue to green, and pink to white.
Akin to beautifully written prose, lines of diamonds and gemstones in graduated tones act like punctuation, lending rhythm to asymmetrical earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings set in platinum, and white, rose and yellow gold.
An expansion of the gem Dior and Dior Et Moi lines, the Tie & Dior range also features classically designed suites adorned with white diamonds in a multitude of shapes and sizes, highlighting de Castellane’s creative genius in combining volume and texture.
