We arrive for the preview of Thomas Sabo’s new Dragon Nights collection at The Pagoda Paris. It’s hard to believe this Parisian venue wasn’t the inspiration for the jeweller’s latest (70-piece) line. The vibrant red Chinese-style pagoda is surrounded by traditional European architecture in the city’s 8th arrondissement. We stop to admire the collection’s pendants: Each piece, in 18-karat rose-gold plating and silver, pops with colourful enamel inlay. Dragon Nights is classic Thomas Sabo, with a world-travelling, ’70s bohemian vibe. Our favourite, though, is the handcrafted coloured-stoneencrusted Chinese Dragon pendant. The mythical creature is an auspicious symbol for good luck in Chinese culture.
