ubies, sap­phires, gar­nets and opals bring life to mod­ern, na­ture-in­spired pieces, such as New York designer Tem­ple St Clair’s Myth­i­cal Crea­tures from the Golden Menagerie col­lec­tion. The unique nine-piece se­ries in­cludes her Phoenix Chicks ear­rings set with Light­ning Ridge black opals, tan­zan­ites, tour­ma­lines, moon­stones, tsa­vorite gar­nets and sap­phires.

Vic­toire de Castel­lane, Dior Joail­lerie’s artis­tic direc­tor, goes for pink sap­phires and tsa­vorite gar­nets this year to adorn her Rose Dior Ba­gatelle col­lec­tion, while Cindy Chao com­bines ru­bies and di­a­monds in her struc­tural But­ter­fly master­piece brooch. Push­ing its enam­ellers to new heights of work­man­ship, Van Cleef & Ar­pels’ Charms Ex­traor­di­naire Amour watch fea­tures in­tri­cately enam­elled wallflow­ers, for­get-me-nots and cy­cla­mens on its mother-of­pearl dial, com­ple­mented by the 38mm pink gold case with a bezel set with a dif­fu­sion of di­a­monds, pink sap­phires and spes­sar­tite gar­nets.

Big cabo­chons are all the rage, too, as up-and­com­ing designer An­abela Chan goes for rasp­berry drop ear­rings with gar­nets, and Bul­gari presents its MVSA neck­lace in pink gold with five rubel­lites and four amethysts weigh­ing a to­tal of 242.94 carats.
