Dior has announced the launch of a new collection of high jewellery, Dior Print.
Designed by creative director Victoire de Castellane, the collection consists of 137 3D transpositions of the “graphic power of prints”, featuring motifs from stripes to checks, from Liberty to tie-dye.
The creations will be revealed alongside the haute couture silhouettes envisioned by Maria Grazia Chiuri.
It is the first high jewellery collection from Dior since Galons Dior in January 2022.
Featured in the collection is a 12.07-carat Madagascar sapphire, a double ring set with a nearly six-carat Ceylon sapphire, a 8.02-carat lilac sapphire from Madagascar on the pistil of the Dior Print Emerald necklace, and a 10.05-carat cushion-cut D Flawless white diamond, and a 11.92-carat Colombian emerald.
De Castellane said: “As with couture, it’s a process that requires a series of adjustments. The work is all the more precise due to the settings’ curved surfaces, which distort prints and lines.”
