Cartier, Dior, Isabelle Langlois, Rosa Maïtena, Hipanema, Boucheron, Gucci, Tasaki, Dubail, Lassaussois, Redline – all the jewellery brands released their summer collection summer jewellery.
The Panthère by Cartier
The panther – Cartier’s totem animal which was reinterpreted time and time again – wraps around the wrist to create the Maison’s new bangle. Six different versions of the bracelet were released, including a shining yellow gold one, and pairing them up is a “must”, right?. The feline’s eyes are represented by two emeralds, an onyx symbolizes its nose and its head is covered by 184 brilliant cut diamonds. Better still, this jewellery piece can be customized by engraving the interior with initials or a date or by embossing the red case that comes with it. It is the perfect gift ideas to make a special someone very, very happy.

The pompoms by Dior
From the Toile de Jouy to the Dior Oblique motif, the new Dioriviera capsule and its citrus colours – designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri (read our Dior sets up in Mykonos article) – released a series of accessories that evokes summertime, such as the J’Adior bracelets. These navy blue and raspberry cotton wristbands are sold in pairs and are embroidered with the Christian Dior signature as well as the name of the holiday destinations: Mykonos, Saint-Tropez, Cannes, Capri and Ibiza. The models are unisex as they can easily be adjusted to fit every wrist thanks to slide fastenings with pompoms. You can wear them on their own or paired up!

The Bees by Isabelle Langlois
Cherished by Isabelle Langlois, the bee pollinates the creator’s new lapel pin collection. Two signature cultured pearls symbolize the body of the insect, and the small accessory features a pair of wings made of rose gold adorned with gemstones. Peridot, rhodolite, citrine, London Blue topaz and diopside bring colour and pep to the summer look and break the rules of traditional High Jewellery. It is very hard to choose between all these adorable combinations.
Starting from €365 – www.isabellelanglois.com
The Butterfly by Dubail
This refined bracelet, made of rose gold by Dubail’s Parisian workshops, will look fantastic this summer on a slightly bronzed skin. This poetic piece represents the eponymous family’s passion for gemstones and thus sports two butterflies set with diamonds which flutter above the wrist with every movement. But don’t go running after butterfly just yet! This “by Dubail” line also metamorphoses into rings, necklaces and pendants.
€8,900 – www.dubail.fr
La Bonne Étoile by Rosa Maïtea
In an effort to make the universe of High Jewellery more ethical and transparent, the brand Rosa Maïtea – founded by Patricia Pereda – is always reinventing itself. Made of entirely traceable recycled gold, diamonds and small gemstones, the “La Bonne Étoile” collection includes sixteen very poetic jewels. The Arcoiris – or “rainbow” – recycled yellow gold ring is the best example: it is extraordinarily colourful with its spinels and garnets. It makes quite the star-studded piece, available from 7 July at Galeries Lafayette in Paris until the end of the year.
€995 (large model ring) – www.rosamaitea.com
The tassels by Hipanema
Hipanema – the perfect summer jewellery brand – embellishes the emblematic large hoop earrings by giving it a boho-chic look. A large gold plated model, the “Cloé Gold” earrings are entirely handmade and decorated with tassels – set with crystal sticks reminiscent of the shine of diamonds – as well as a semi-precious round Labradorite in the middle. A chain pompom and small turquoise-colour beads also ornament the piece.
€115 – www.hipanema.com
The Tourbillon by Lassaussois
Real success this season, this oversize cuff bracelet caused quite the sensation on the latest runaways. Lassaussois understood this perfectly when releasing its Tourbillon model. The white gold openwork circles and diamonds intertwine like a tornado on the bracelet. The piece can either be worn up or down the arm for a trendier and quirkier look. This free-spirited accessory will liven up a white or liberty dress.
€21,000 – www.boutiquelesmontres.com
La Flèche du Temps by Boucheron
The new Boucheron stud earring pierces right through our heart with its white gold arrow, carefully paved with round diamonds. This earring – which is sold individually – is a shot at modernity because of the atypical and modern way it is worn. At My-Watchsite, we like the fineness of the lines of the piece and of the collection altogether – which also comprises a claps-free bracelet and an ultra-flexible necklace, that can be put on very easily.
€15,000 – www.boucheron.com
The Link to Love by Gucci
The “mix and match” trend makes total sense with Gucci’s latest gender-neutral line. There is no other choice than to pair up all the variations of the bracelets and rings! With three gold colours available – yellow, white and rose gold – the models are reminiscent of the design of the eccentric jewels from the 1980s while also being brought up-to-date. With its octagonal shape to represent the number eight – the infinity symbol – the pieces showcase a myriad of different finishes – mirrored, studded, carefully engraved stripped or set with gemstones. We don’t like it. We love it!
Starting from €790 – www.gucci.com
The Balance by Tasaki
Founded in 1954, Tasaki knows perfectly how to combine yellow gold and Akoya nacre pearls. Designed by Thakoon Panichgul, the very minimalist and graphic “Balance” collection walks the fine line between precious metals and pearls. The Maison released a yellow gold asymmetrical ring adorned with four small Akoya pearls which contrast with three larger pearls. The deconstructed design gives the ring its elegance and sophistication for a harmonious summer look.
€5,110 – www.tasaki.fr
The Illusion by Redline
Guiding thread of the Parisian maison Redline, the extremely resistant famous piece sees double with the Illusion Twin model. The two intertwined strings are adorned with seven diamonds secured on an invisible round setting. Available in four gold colours – yellow, rose, white and black gold – this jewellery is like a chameleon with its over eighty-five different shades. To make your customized bracelet, you can choose between each and every possible combination. And you can thread your way through the endless possibilities, as you can change the shade by making an appointment at the Parisian workshop.
