Fantasy and fairytales have been lifted off the pages, and straight into wearable art. This season, Italian designers Dolce & Gabbana sent Cinderella walking down the runway (in glass slippers, no less!), while Malaysian jeweller DeGem has taken it even further. Consider the Pink Aurora necklace, which dazzles with cushion pink sapphires totalling over 40 carats—a masterpiece of which Sleeping Beauty herself would be jealous. Tales of mythical creatures made its way to reality through dazzling diamonds and colourful pearls. Case in point: the Noble Phoenix pendant, a mysterious creation that evokes the elegance of the mythical bird. Fairytales have never been this glamorous.
