Jewelry ateliers in Paris are planning to add sparkle to the Biennale des Antiquaires, which will be held at the Grand Palais Sept. 11 to 21. Cartier and Chanel, two of the grandest names in gems, gave WWD a sneak preview of the collections they will be showing there.
Playing on the Biennale's garden theme, Chanel presented two new takes on its perennial camellia story: a featherlight, three-strand diamond necklace and the collection's showstopper — a pin inspired by the storied house's iconic flower. Its curved petals, which alternate between translucent panes of turquoise enamel and diamond-studded leaves, frame a bold 38-carat turquoise paraiba tourmaline at the center. Chanel will present 40 new high jewelry pieces at the Biennale.

"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
