Louis Vuitton now takes the Blossom bijoux range to the next level with the unveiling of an even more exquisite second chapter: high jewellery. There are a total of seven spectacular necklaces and more than 60 rings, bracelets and earrings, all of which depict the monogram flower through opulent arrangements of vividly coloured gemstones.
These span from a 53.01ct black opal and a 43.05ct beryl to an impressive 29.75ct tsavorite garnet uncovered from a newly discovered mine in Merelani, Tanzania. And for a more visually impactful finish, contrasting hues and textures are paired – crystalline with opaque, for instance.
What’s so appealing about Louis Vuitton’s new Blossom high jewellery collection is that the house has not attempted to reimagine the flower in highly stylised guises, but instead has embraced its simple, graphic lines in their purest and most elegant forms.
