The Jewellery Edit: De Grisogono 2014.. Contemporary Baroque Creations…

Green with envy?.. De Grisogono 2014…

Established in 1993. de Grisogono have had incredible success considering their relatively short time involved in the world of jewellery. Fawaz Gruosi released a black diamond collection in 1996 that catapulted his jewellery line into a world wide phenomenon. While it might take centuries of evolution for a diamond to form, the rise of the de Grisogono label appeared to be an over night hit.

There are some fashion labels that rely on the image of their designer just as much as they rely on the image of their pieces. The strength of de Grisogono is that the character of Gruosi seeps through all of his designs. His watches are extravagant, but playful and his jewellery, like the necklace featured above, are charismatic and classy. Designers that stay true to themselves can sometimes find it tough to fit into a fashion scene driven by trends, but de Grisogono is certainly one of the more prominent success stories.

We’ve written about fine jewellery quite regularly on http://www.theblingsociety.com blog and we believe that these pieces from de Grisogono are some of the best we’ve laid eyes upon.

The Jewellery Edit: Dior Fine Jewellery 2014.. Extravagance on an entirely different level…

Cher Fine Jewellery.. Dior 2014…

I’m envious of the jewellery designers who are employed at big name companies such as Chanel and Dior, who get to design with seemingly limitless budgets. Previously on this blog we’ve shown some of the work of Chanel, and now we are featuring some of Dior’s fine Jewellery.

When it comes to these pieces, it seems that all levels of practicality have just been thrown out the door. There isn’t one diamond, there’s a billion, and they aren’t just one shade, but an entire spectrum of colour and flamboyance. How are you supposed to walk around in the real world with a million carats hanging from your ears? It’d be lighter just to use real carrots!

But it’s the flamboyance that we love. This design is so multi faceted that I first had to double check to make sure these designs aren’t just plastic imitations. The accuracy that would go into the crafting of these items is simply mind boggling.

Grab some herbal tea, a biscuit or two, and just flick through these pictures of pure grandeur.
