FIT FOR A QUEEN

ELLE (Canada) - - Style -

VICTOIRE DE CASTELLANE, DIOR’S CRE­ATIVE DIREC­TOR OF FINE JEW­ELLERY, HAS TAKEN CUES FROM VER­SAILLES FOR SEV­ERAL SEA­SONS, AND FOR HER LAT­EST COL­LEC­TION SHE WAS PAR­TIC­U­LARLY FAS­CI­NATED BY THE BAROQUE PALACE’S HID­DEN PAS­SAGES AND SE­CRET BOUDOIRS. A CLOSER LOOK AT THE RUBELLITE PENDANT, WHICH IS DRIP­PING WITH DI­A­MONDS, RE­VEALS A SPOOKY SKULL MADE FROM SPINELS AND YET MORE DI­A­MONDS. THE RINGS HOLD SE­CRETS TOO: AN OVER­SIZED GREEN BERYL OPENS LIKE A TRAP DOOR ON ONE, WHILE AN OPAL RING FEA­TURES A GOLD- CLAD DRAWER AS IF TO HOLD TINY LET­TERS FROM A TINY MISTRESS. MADAME DE POMPADOUR WOULD AP­PROVE.
