From dawn 'til dusk the Riviera's horizon in its varying nuances of blue incites jewellers to create summer skies of turquoise, lapis lazuli or tanzanite in sunny gold settings.
Van Cleef & Arpels | All-rounder.
For summer the joyful Perlée collection's gold beads team up with coloured stones. Our favourite? The pairing of gold and turquoise, known for its soothing properties, in earrings, necklace, ring and this sumptuous transformable sautoir.
Chopard | Heart to heart.
Good news if you're into playful jewellery: the Happy Hearts collection has added models that are even more fun. The earrings featuring turquoise hearts, outline hearts and hearts with mobile diamonds frame the face most delightfully.
Akillis | Engaging.
Deep blue for the Yes I Do engagement ring in white gold, diamonds and tanzanite.
Fred | Mediterranean.
The Baie des Anges collection is designed around the house codes of palm-link chain, gold discs and diamond-set bands. Here a note of colour is added by a lapis-lazuli bead, for elegant women who wouldn't be seen on holiday without a gold-and-diamond bracelet!
Tasaki | You & I.
In the Tasaki by MHT collection that jewellery designer Marie-Hélène de Taillac created for the Japanese jeweller, the yellow-gold Inseparable Star ring features an Akoya pearl and a blue topaz.
