Forget ballgowns and fur coats—this season’s offerings of wildly imaginative high and fine jewelry in rainbow hues beg to be paired, with say, an edgy braided-leather tank top or a spaghetti-strap Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello dress. This ultra-high end of the jewelry market from names such as Cartier, Harry Winston, Dior,
and Graff is known for showstopping gems at showstopping prices, often focusing on classical concepts and settings. (Read: big, bright diamonds in carefully crafted floral or sleek designs).
But now, as pent-up demand for diamonds means a rise in their value, it’s the right time to take a risk. There is even an investment house, Amma Group, that specializes in colored diamonds. “There are not more than 100 red diamonds in the world,” Mahyar Makhzani, a co-founder of the group, told The Wall Street Journal in February. “It’s like owning a Picasso: You know he isn’t going to be making any more.”
Shapes inspired by the natural world and adventurous settings get center stage in this shoot by Felicity Ingram with styling by Virginie Benarroch. A buckle-inspired, multicolor necklace from Louis Vuitton that hugs the nape, bunches of vibrantly green seaweed-like earrings from David Yurman or a magically massive teal butterfly ring from Chopard? Now is the time to go for it. Throw on a pair of Balenciaga sunglasses, clasp an intricate Graff bracelet on as an anklet and hit the town. —Elisa Lipsky-Karasz
