Dior et d'Opals Unveiled
Anyone who has followed the collections of Victoire de Castellane for Dior Joaillerie is well aware of her propensity for color, and so it should come as no surprise that opals are her stone of choice.
In celebration of the gem that can display almost any color depending on its composition, Dior et d'Opales was presented during the Spring 2017 Couture Week in Paris.
27 pieces debuted featuring black and white opals of differing shapes set in both all white diamonds and gemstone combinations almost as equally colorful. Eight one-of-kind secret watches are at the center of the collection (Monsieur Dior’s favorite number), although creative director de Castellane prefers to call them ’time-telling bracelets’ as a nod to the fact that they are hardly utilitarian watches. Rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings round out the dreamy collection that is sure to make more fans of opals.
