“Yes, I do.” Smiling and slowly uttering the sweet vow – one that carries the joys and sorrows of the past – we allow time to pass and appearances to age, in the hopes that the one thing that remains the same is the person standing by us.
Declaration of Love
How do we continue the dream chapter of love? Perhaps Dior Joaillerie’s creative director Victorie de Castellane has the best answer, as she turns the powerful declaration of love into a brand new collection of jewelry and watches – Gem Dior, Gemmes Dior, J’aime Dior. It is as if the recurring geometric patterns found in her creations resemble the ups and downs in a relationship, while the carefully arranged rectangular stackings are like the sorcerer’s stones symbolizing luck. Not only do they imbue the gemstones with rhythm and beauty, but they also add depth and variety to the sensory experience. Offered in several different colors – white gold, rose gold, yellow gold, half or fully paved diamonds – the seven brand new bracelets offer the elegant grooms a chance to achieve their desired appearance and showcase their distinctive style through creative layering. On top of that, Dior also unveils two timepieces that narrate the passage of precious time. Echoing with the essence of the collection, the dials feature exquisite contrasts through different materials, colors and densities. Whether it’s the combination of turquoise, gold and stainless steel, or the perfect harmony created by lapis lazuli and hard gemstones, they all capture the beauty of the cherished moments shared between lovers.
Founded in 1893, Mikimoto celebrated its 130th anniversary this year, as the brand continues its dedication to adorn everyone with pearls, regardless of gender or age. With a brand new jewelry design, the Japanese jeweler adds a gentle touch to men’s style by introducing the V Code collection that features V-shaped lines, a symbol of breaking stereotypes. The collection not only captures a sleek and modern style, but also establishes a fashionable trend with an emphasis on self-expression, allowing the wearer to beam with brilliance with each and every movement. Another novelty is the M Signature collection, which incorporates the unique but soft pink gold tone with brilliant diamonds to exude a lively impression. Drawing inspiration from the brand logo, the letter M is situated to create a mirror effect, while the delicate handling of angles reflects lights to connect the letterforms and the clever hollow-out design enhances comfort for the wearer. Offered in pendants, earrings and rings, the collection provides numerous choices for grooms to celebrate significant occasions in their most ideal way.
A Stunning Imagery
Originating from the late 19th century, a new form of artistic expression – cinema – was born. Like spectacular fireworks, the display of continuous frames shaped the iconic creations from the DAMIANI Belle Époque collection. Utilizing innovative geometric patterns, the novelties capture the essence of visual arts and become emblems of the beauty found in early films. The intertwining sapphires, rubies, emeralds and diamonds outline graceful silhouettes and curves, as if recalling the joyful memories shared with past lovers and the pleasures of life that come with it. Another extension of the collection, the Belle Époque Reel echoes with the vibrant colors used in the early jewelries, while reflecting the contemporary vitality and spirit of digital films. Crafted with 18-karat white, yellow and rose gold, the pieces are adorned with exquisite diamonds and with a gentle touch, the precious metal ring rotates like a film reel. Meanwhile, the interplay of circles and rectangles becomes symbolic codes of “0” and “1” found in the technological era. As they turn, they represent how a brand new generation is striving forward, a dedication to the stylish men who, with courage, embrace innovative thinking and the abundance of happiness that the unknown future may bring forth.
