From Louis Vuitton high jewellery to Messika and Giampiero Bodino, here's how to embrace the modern spirit of jewels
Louis Vuitton‘s Acte V white gold, onyx and diamond ring and earrings evoke a playful spirit when approached with a youthful attitude. The trick is to forget any astute and stuffy connotations more regularly associated with high jewellery, and instead channel a relaxed approach. (Not so relaxed that you leave your diamonds by the kitchen sink of course…).
Faberge‘s Le Renard emerald, sapphire and white diamond necklace looks just as good with an Ellery day dress as it would a ballgown. Similarly, Italian designer Giampiero Bodino’s Mosaico set suddenly becomes appropriate for nine to five when dressed down with Givenchy.
We say forget the vault. Whether it be with a simple white shirt or sharply cut blazer, the modern way means flaunting your most precious pieces at any time of day. Just don’t forget that like our model Marie Clara, a carefree and cool attitude is the antidote.
