In Wealth and Prosperity
Since ancient times, the color gold has been a symbol of harvest and wealth, the color of royalty. A striking new collection, the Tiffany Knot features the signature graphic knot motif with 18k yellow and rose gold styles and pavé diamond iterations, creating a contrast between the smooth organic forms with pointed edges. Rebellious without losing modern elegance, the collection also pays tribute to New York City, Tiffany & Co.’s hometown, and perfectly captures the subversive and audacious culture of the Big Apple. Like a symbol of preserving wealth, the bracelets come with a double-wrap effect with the gold knot cleverly concealing the clasp, making it appear as one continuous, graceful design. A talisman of connection, the Tiffany Knot not only showcases a style that is modern and refined, but also wishes everyone good fortune and good health.
Inheriting Eastern traditions, Harry Winston incorporates its jewelry pieces with gold elements that symbolize warmth and hope. Drawing inspiration from the stately gilded front gates of Harry Winston salons worldwide, the Winston Gates collection features the rosette motif, which transcends into a symbol of opportunity, prospect and good fortune. Meanwhile, fashioned from 18 karat white, yellow and rose gold, the HW Logo collection sparkles with round brilliant diamonds and incorporates emerald cut designs to bring out its timeless elegance. Lastly, the Diamond Loop series presents the distinctive teardrop silhouette, making it one of the House’s most iconic creations. Particularly choosing pear-shaped yellow sapphire, the pieces become an embodiment of positivity and exquisiteness.
Turning a New Leaf
Through the arrangement of exquisite diamonds, the fresh dewdrops of dawn become a statement of vitality, turning the fleeting splendor into an eternity of happiness. Celebrating the beauty of Mother Nature, De Beers introduces the new Dewdrop hoop earrings that are inspired by the House’s medallion design. These white gold hoops cleverly create the illusion of diamonds gracefully floating from the ear. A testament of eternal love, the iconic ear cuff and necklace also come in rose gold with the signature combination of micropavé and bezel-set round brilliant diamonds. Also drawing inspiration from nature’s beauty, the Enchanted Lotus collection perfectly captures the purity of the lotus. Portraying the flower in floating micropavé diamonds, the series becomes a symbol of rebirth in this time of turbulence as we embrace the endless possibilities in this upcoming new year.
With Might and Power
A symbol of strength and might, the tiger is also an auspicious beast that brings peace and security. It is also the king of wild beasts, one that is majestic, powerful and glorious. To capture the fearlessness of the animal, MIKIMOTO launches two tiger brooches: a gold one featuring special engraving to bring out the tiger’s piercing attitude and proud posture, while the silver one brings out a softer side as the beast appears to be walking with leisure and confidence. Meanwhile, emblematic of health and longevity, MIKIMOTO’s iconic pearl collections feature the rich, plump Golden South Sea cultured pearls and the Akoya cultured pearls, which represent purity and happiness. With the meticulous setting of brilliant diamonds, these delicate pieces welcome the arrival of 2022 with joy and excitement.
Safe and Sound
Derived from nature, the jadeite shines with a unique shade and quality after having undergone a long period of tempering. Then, combine with delicate design and impeccable craftsmanship, it becomes a token of peace and prosperity. Following the traditions of ancient royalties, Jadegia chooses high quality yellow jadeite for its clear and smooth color. Luxuriously designed, the ring with diamond inlays transcends into an emblem of majesty and respect. Without being overly flamboyant, jade becomes a figure of peace, while shining with a shade of emerald revealing its tranquility and simplicity. In addition, the necklace is a nod to the legendary three-legged toad originated from Chinese folklore. Equipped with the ability to produce gold and silver coins from its mouth, the toad is seen as a symbol of great wealth and a tribute to Chinese heritage that wishes the wearer richness, prosperity and good fortune.
