Pristine pearls

 trendy bijoux decembre

The film Jackie* starring Natalie Portman has triggered renewed interest in pearls, a Jackie Kennedy favourite. In a necklace, their iridescence imbues a gracefully held head with true sophistication.


Van Cleef & Arpels
The Danse du Lion sautoir in white and yellow gold offers a contrastful association of red coral, diamonds, onyx, yellow sapphires, red spinels and white cultured pearls, its focal point the lion’s head and tassel adorning the décolleté.


HRH Jewels
The G’rafik “tie” necklace in Akoya pearls, diamonds and pink sapphires with a rubellite heart plays entertainingly on the idea of transmutability. An ingenious system makes the cascade of diamonds forming the “tie” detachable so the necklace can be worn two ways.


Rock crystal on pink and white gold, cultured pearls and diamonds share the limelight in the Héra, Le Paon medallion that draws on Greek mythology. Symbolising immortality, peace and prosperity, the hundred-eyed peacock will protect whoever wears it.
