Bring a spot of sunshine to evening shindigs with yellow gems.
Bring a spot of sunshine to those evening shindigs with punchy sapphires, citrines and fancy-coloured diamonds
Get into the swing of ball season with jewels in luminous, cheerful yellow. Chaumet has created a breathtaking set with large, yellow cushion-cut Ceylon sapphires as the focal point. Different forms of water were the inspiration for Chaumet’s Lumières d’eau high jewellery collection—parure 11 takes its sunny disposition from sun-lit lakes. The long necklace in yellow gold has more than 40 carats of yellow sapphires, beads and motifs of topaz, golden cultured pearls and one 30.29-carat cushion-cut Ceylon sapphire. Time is literally golden with the matching secret watch, set with 570 yellow sapphires and a 13.45-carat Ceylon sapphire at the centre, which lifts to reveal the hours and minutes.
Also inspired by nature, Graff has an extensive range of jewellery in the form of butterflies. The brand’s founder, Laurence Graff, loves the concept of the metamorphosis of caterpillars into colourful and delicate winged creatures. The Pavé Butterfly collection includes playful drop earrings with three butterflies on each side, set in white and yellow diamonds.
Every year, in time for the Cannes Film Festival, Chopard creates high jewellery pieces that make up its Red Carpet collection. For 2015, the brand revealed 68 new models, one for each year of the festival. One of the most striking showcases a fancy vivid yellow radiant-cut diamond weighing 30 carats. The stone is set on a white gold ring, which is enveloped in more diamonds.
Meanwhile, Dior Joaillerie brings the sunshine with the Granville Soleil collection. In one brilliant example, golden opals, tourmalines and diamonds combine to create a flirty pair of earrings.
