1_ CHANEL Fly­ing Cloud Golden Braid bracelet

The Chanel Fly­ing Cloud jew­ellery col­lec­tion is in­spired by the el­e­gant sum­mer dresses with nau­ti­cal mo­tifs cre­ated by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel. The name also harks back to cruises aboard the yacht of the same name that be­longed to Chanel’s lover, the Duke of Westminster. The bracelet is in 18k yel­low gold, set with a cush­ion-cut di­a­mond of 4.22 carats and 273 bril­liant­cut di­a­monds.

2_ DIOR Dior à Ver­sailles, Côté Jardins ear­rings

Dior’s lat­est col­lec­tion of high jew­ellery is the sec­ond edition of the house’s ex­pe­di­tion to dis­cover the beauty of Ver­sailles. Last year’s in­spi­ra­tion was the chateau and this year it is the gar­dens that curt­sey and bow be­fore the royal palace. The col­lec­tion’s asym­met­ri­cal hoop ear­rings are set with an ar­ray of gems, in­clud­ing fire opals, emer­alds, gar­nets and coloured di­a­monds.

3_ CARTIER Cac­tus de Cartier ring

Cartier takes us on a jour­ney to the desert with the prickly charms of its Cac­tus de Cartier col­lec­tion. There are new ad­di­tions to the col­lec­tion in 18k gold, stud­ded with di­a­monds and spinels, that de­pict the hardy desert plant cap­tured in the twi­light of evening. The Cac­tus de Cartier ring in pink gold has two de­light­ful cac­tus bulbs re­veal­ing five bril­liant­cut di­a­monds and nine spinel blooms.

4_ PIAGET Sunny Side of Life manchette

The Sunny Side of Life col­lec­tion con­sists ex­clu­sively of manchettes – cuff bracelets of the type Piaget has made its sig­na­ture since the 1960s. This example is an 18k white gold manchette, dis­play­ing del­i­cate blue-green feathers of 22 mar­quise-cut blue sap­phires, 10 princess-cut di­a­monds and two tri­an­gle-cut di­a­monds that ra­di­ate an al­lur­ing hue of swim­ming pool blue.
