GUCCI’S HIGH JEWELLERY
Paris fashion week is not just about clothing, it is also the time when luxury brands present their High Jewellery collection. Gucci presented a selection of the new Hortus Deliciarum edition at the House’s Place Vendôme boutique. These exquisite pieces are what inspire our minds when in the search for that special bridal jewellery set.
Hortus Deliciarum — meaning ‘Garden of Delights’ in Latin — blends Gucci’s rich heritage in Italian craftsmanship and its ever-distinctive creativity in one-of-a-kind masterpieces distinguished by unique artistry, exceptional quality, and acute attention to detail. The current chapter, the third since the collection’s launch in 2019, draws inspiration from the world of travel and the memorable moments that every journey can bring.
The new additions to the Hortus Deliciarum collection include necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and multi-finger rings, divided into different themes. The designs explore tantalizing facets of the natural and animal kingdom, placing jewelry artistry centre stage. These pieces evoke distant, exotic, and magical worlds, exciting the imagination with Gucci’s signature painterly approach to high jewelry craftsmanship.
The collection includes several new creations showcasing a captivating combination of multi-coloured stones that are inspired by the concept of prismatic beauty and specifically designed to catch the light.
Stunning pieces are distinguished by cascades of dancing diamonds, inspired by the beauty of shooting stars and the sparkling torrents of a waterfall. Below, dazzling white gold necklace and matching drop earrings. Involving 300 hours of production, the necklace features diamond-embellished starbursts trimmed with lady-like diamond bows, while the earrings reveal diamond-encrusted bows and chandelier-like crystal droplets around two teardrop cut diamonds with a total of 16.7 carats.
The Hortus Deliciarum High Jewelry collection, launched in Paris in 2019, it followed by a second chapter presented on Italy’s Lake Maggiore in 2021 while the third and current collection was initially unveiled in Rome in 2022.
