The creative director of Christian Dior’s fine jewellery division has dreamt up 39 transgressive creations inspired by historical style

As a nod to the old jewellery style known as toi et moi, Victoire de Castellane, Christian Dior's fine jewellery creative director, has drawn up 39 high jewellery pieces of shapes and colours that betray tradition. Toi et moi, which is classically a jewellery piece featuring two stones set side-by-side symbolising the uniting of two souls, dates back several centuries. Napoleon Bonaparte proffered a ring set with majestic blue sapphire and diamond to ask for Joséphine de Beauharnais' hand in marriage in 1796. The style's romance is now being revived with the Dior at Moi collection.

 

Flaunting unconventional colours, proportions and shapes of stones of exceptional quality, the collection revisits the symbolic duo with a contemporary touch. Lacquer joins the mix with 15 audacious hues. Between-finger rings, bangles, necklaces and earrings are encrusted with diamonds, emeralds, blue or pink sapphires and pearls, and Victoire de Castellane's favourite stone, opal, steals the limelight, especially in the oversized version as the pendant on a pearl necklace. Red spinels, tourmalines, rubellites, kunzite and turquoise also show themselves off in pieces such as the asymmetrical earrings and rings.

Asserting abstract and artistic essence, as well as maison's technical virtuosity, pieces like the secret mother-of-pearl watch boast impressive stones with breathtaking designs. Each piece is worked on both sides making the collection a perfection at every angle.
