Gal Gadot Stars in Tiffany & Co. Campaign

Tiffany & Co. presents its latest high jewelry campaign starring actress
Gal Gadot, who stuns in sparkling new designs from BOTANICA: Blue Book 2022, the pinnacle of the House’s jewelry portfolio. Shot in a pared-down environment, the photography features Gadot in key pieces from the spring Blue Book collection, including a dandelion-inspired diamond necklace
that can transform into five unique designs, as well as an orchid brooch, also transformable, and a
diamond and sapphire necklace that evokes thistles.

«I am incredibly honored to be a part of the new Blue Book high jewelry campaign and feel very fortunate to be able to represent the brand’s most esteemed jewelry collection during this exciting and transformative time,» said Gal Gadot.

Designs from Tiffany & Co.’s BOTANICA collection, Blue Book 2022, celebrating the timeless beauty of flora with these high jewelry pieces.

Gadot’s campaign represents the House’s first advertising venture with the actress. In addition to the new Blue Book designs, Gadot also wears several of Jean Schlumberger’s masterworks featured in BOTANICA, including his iconic Bird on a Rock brooch and the Fleurage bracelet. An exquisite creation that Tiffany & Co. artisans brought to life for the first time, the Fleurage bracelet is based on a sketch for a design that Jean Schlumberger once considered for the legendary Tiffany Diamond.

«Gal Gadot is more than a House ambassador. She epitomizes the effortless glamour, sheer sophistication and sense of modernity that Blue Book represents,» said Alexandre Arnault, Executive Vice President, Product and Communication, Tiffany & Co. «We are thrilled that she is the face of the new BOTANICA campaign

Louis Vuitton Idylle Blossom

Unveiled in 2012, the Idylle Blossom jewellery collection celebrates the Monogram Flower, Louis Vuitton’s iconic signature since 1896.
From voluptuous and full curves to the more tapered and slender, the flowers are true embodiments of the Maison’s heritage and savoir-faire, as delicate blossoms meet brilliant stars.

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of this emblematic collection, both original designs and new interpretations are adorned with diamonds, yielding a contemporary yet refined elegance.
New everyday essentials join the collection, from pavé pendants, earrings, and rings to those set with diamonds. Worn together, stacked, layered or alone, the pieces can be styled to suit any mood or occasion, celebrating the beauty of the imagination. Each of the Monogram Flowers complements a shade of gold – rose, yellow or white – accentuating brilliant-cut diamonds, and rendering these creations undeniably feminine and sensual.

Stylistically, repetition and layering best highlight the collection’s designs. One or more necklaces draped from the neck enhance the skin with a dazzling radiance.


A pair of hoop earrings, adorned with Monogram Flowers, frame the face. An ear cuff worn on the left ear contrasts with multiple stud earrings worn on the right. Additionally, a reversible stud earring displays the Maison’s motifs with Louis Vuitton’s initials on one side and the Monogram Flower on the other.

Another stud earring enlivened with a white gold chain offers a contemporary yet playful look. Multiple styles hide within one design, allowing the wearer to change their look without changing jewellery. The collection’s signature piece, the Idylle Blossom ring, takes on a refined aesthetic this season. Whether layered for a striking effect or worn alone, each diamond-set motif ring shines on one or more of the fingers.

A harmonious blend of shades and shapes, the new Idylle Blossom creations invite the wearer to discover their own style, revealing the heroine within; contemporary, dazzling and free.

Worldwide launch on April 15th.

Imperio Necklace by Cartier

The new Sixième Sens par Cartier collection showcases that extra touch of soul unique to High Jewellery, an expression of art that inspires like no other.

Trompe-l’oeil or graphic games, optical effects or evocative power, the compositions play with Earth’s gravity. Disrupting our perceptions, this collection draws us into a world where our senses are stimulated and awakened. Even our sixth sense, that exhilarating rush of emotion that touches the heart.

With the Imperio necklace, Cartier continues its reflection on movement: how do you give rhythm to a composition and create a sense of speed? To answer these questions, Cartier borrows from the codes of kinetic art. Lines of tension, brisk strokes, geometric shapes and mirrored construction.

Graphic patterns are further accentuated by colour contrasts such as the black of the onyx and the green of the emeralds.  A chromatic combination that has been part of the Maison’s stylistic repertoire since 1910 and which accentuates the effect of perspective. It all combines to confuse the gaze that converges on the central stone: an exceptional 23.55-carat Colombian emerald with no inclusions. This octagonal stone has a perfectly homogeneous green colour with bluish undertones that harmonise with the other emeralds. Since my visit to an emerald mine in Muzo, Colombia in 2015, I have so much appreciation and love for those amazing, powerful green stones.

Like every piece of Cartier High Jewellery, the choice of stones pays tribute to their beauty. All must meet the highest standards of excellence and quality set by the Maison’s experts. A duty and a responsibility, both social and environmental that Cartier has pioneered, by being committed from the very beginning in terms of sourcing coloured stones. Therefore the Maison is a founding member of the Responsible Jewellery council (RJC), an organisation created in 2005 that sets standards in the areas of social and environmental responsibility for the jewellery and watchmaking industry.

With almost thirty different ways to wear it, this was the challenge the Cartier design studio and workshops had to face. This approach to jewellery has been part of the Maison’s history since the appearance of the first headbands that could be transformed into necklaces and, around the 1920s, bracelets that could be dismantled into brooches. Each new High Jewellery collection is an opportunity for Cartier to push the boundaries of innovation and ingenuity.

This necklace allows itself to transform. It can be worn short, long, split in two to be worn either together or separately. Opt for the diamond or emerald alone as a pendant, multiple combinations further increased by the possibility of unfastening the triangular motif that can be worn as a brooch… When worn, the jewellery piece reinvents itself, divides its charms and multiplies its appearances.

CHANEL Camélia – New Jewelry Pieces

Gabrielle Chanel was seduced by the camellia. With no fragrance or thorns, it is a flower of simplicity and purity, much akin to the ethos of Coco Chanel. Compared to the opulence of a rose, she preferred the camellia’s sobriety and geometric roundedness, with classic and consistent ordering of the petals, intelligible yet beautiful, like the woman that she was.

It is also a flower of duality, for dandies and courtesans. Androgynous and ambiguous, the camellia has an image of a forbidden flower that resonates with Mademoiselle Chanel’s taste for provocation and seduction. I am a huge fan of the CHANEL Camélia jewelry collection, that is the promise of a unique look for all the women who wear it.

This fall, CHANEL offers new interpretations of the camellia flower on rings, brooches, chokers, bracelets and more, that are available in store from this month. The emblematic flower is reinterpreted through a selection that opens access to the fascinating universe of the Maison’s symbols. Please enjoy your exclusive preview of dream pieces… I already put some on my wish list.

Louis Vuitton – Vivienne Travellers Collection

The delicate figurine named Vivienne arrived at Louis Vuitton as if by magic in 2018. Initially a decorative object, she has proven capable of adapting to any environment, occasion or style to become the Maison’s beloved contemporary mascot.

Her family has expanded to include 11 unprecedented jewellery creationsVivienne pendants pay homage to the cultures that are dear to Louis Vuitton, and these precious globetrotters know no borders.

Here the romantic Vivienne Plum is adorned with poetic pink gold plum blossoms, diamonds and red lacquer, and features a delicate bow on her back. There, transformed into a furry black and white animal who loves fresh bamboo, the adorable Vivienne Panda in white and yellow gold, diamonds, onyx and lacquer symbolises luck, peace and friendship. Korea’s ancestral embroidered garment, known as Hanbok, is enhanced by the carved and polished pink and white gold, diamonds and blazing lacquer of Vivienne Hanbok. As powerful, protective and brave as a Japanese samurai, Vivienne Samurai, dressed in yellow and white gold, diamonds and red and black lacquer, skilfully wields a Katana, the emblematic sword of those venerable warriors.

Now meet Vivienne Surfer, the most athletic of all, sporting blue lacquer and a long board adorned with the LV Monogram signature. And look who’s back: Vivienne Casino, reinvented in white and yellow gold, platinum, diamonds and lacquer. Bedecked in hearts, spades, diamond shapes and LV initials, an engraved deck of playing cards in hand, she is a champion of blackjack, poker and roulette. The magnificent Vivienne Rainbow radiates joy, emotion and hope thanks to an exquisite pavé gradation of 154 multicoloured gems. The astonishing Vivienne Royal, wearing a crown of yellow gold and diamonds and dressed in a blue lacquer robe punctuated with fleur-de-lys, pays homage to Paris’s Place Vendôme – the worldwide epicentre of jewellery and home to one of the most majestic Louis Vuitton stores.

The vivacious Vivienne Petite Malle featuring yellow and pink gold, diamonds and lacquer is never without her miniature handbag, whose shape recalls the Maison’s original trunks. Framing the face of Vivienne Monogram, petals of mother-of-pearl engraved with Monogram canvas motifs beautifully complement her eye of sculpted wood and her body shimmering with pink gold and diamonds. This piece elegantly evokes the Maison’s century-old trunk-making heritage. Lastly, Vivienne Celebration, in white and yellow gold set with 36 coloured stones and 124 diamonds, conveys a festive atmosphere. Specially created to celebrate Mr Louis Vuitton’s bicentennial birthday, she masterfully combines a mix of materials with traditional jewellery-making expertise.

Forever mischievous, each of these fetish figures pushes the boundaries of her mysterious aura by hiding a secret: the pendant can be converted into a brooch.

A trunk, exclusively designed for these precious mascots, opens like a treasure chest to reveal an array of miniature stages, drawers, trays and mirrors. Nodding to the origins of the Maison, this unique jewellery box offers a home for each limited edition Vivienne, thus perpetuating the excellence of Louis Vuitton, which makes the Art of Travel a true art of living.
