Dior never fails to dazzle the world with its extraordinary mastery. And this season, the French luxury fashion house has outdone itself with a high jewelry collection that demands to be admired.
Consisting of 137 remarkable pieces that fit as perfectly as an haute couture gown, Dior’s new jewelry line, named Dior Print, was inspired by the creative director of Dior Joaillerie Victoire de Castellane’s desire to “draw prints on jewelry”. So, the pieces feature liberty prints, checks, stripes and tie-dye motifs, all of which appear not on clothes, but on necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and more.
The journey to get here was anything but easy—Victoire de Castellane spent a great deal of time researching on how to make one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces, studying lace in Dior Dior Dior in 2018, textile dye effects in Tie & Dior in 2020, and braids in Galons Dior in January 2022. And the hard work paid off—Dior’s latest offerings, seen in the pages of Vogue Arabia on Saudi Arabian actress Aseel, jump off the page with their sharp cuts and undeniable charm. Think structured earrings, ribbon-like chokers, and stunning floral rings. The Dior Print collection also boasts a dreamy range of drop earrings, pendants and cufflinks, proving that the fashion house has something to offer to just about everyone.
Look closer, and there’s missing the impeccable craftsmanship that has gone into each Dior Print creation. To make the fabric motifs work on jewelry’s intrictae scale, Dior’s jewelers reworked and adjusted two main factors—the type of setting, and the density of the multicolored gems used in each piece. “When ribbons undulate, the print must follow,” Victoire de Castellane explained. “As with couture, it’s a process that requires a series of adjustments. The work is all the more precise due to the settings’ curved surfaces, which distort prints and lines.” Bringing together a melange of precious stones, from diamonds and Colombian emeralds, to Madagascar sapphires and Mozambique rubies, this jewelry line is one for the books.
