“Appartements de Mesdames Alcôve” by Dior

 

Appartements de Mesdames Alcôve ring in yellow gold, scorched silver, white and pink gold, diamonds and sapphire. “I imagined Versailles by night, where the stones glistened in the candlelight” says Victoire de Castellane about the inspiration that led her to design the ring. The amazing jewel is part of the new collection Dior à Versailles, inspired from the icon of luxury and the French art of living, a Dior destination par excellence.

On beholding the diamond drop necklace, one might recall a crystal tassel from a chandelier; further along, an earring evokes a curtain tieback in the royal apartments; elsewhere, a bow seems to have escaped from the detail work on typically rocaille, or Rococo-style, furniture … In playfully recasting these elements, Victoire de Castellane invites us to revisit Versailles, magnifying glass in hand, to better appreciate its graphic and ornamental aspects.”
