The unbridled imagination of Dior’s Victoire de Castellane has certainly not been tempered by these uncertain times. Thinking big, the designer commissioned a goliath gray jewelry box to house the latest batch of dazzlers from her “Coffret de Victoire” collection of one-off fine jewelry pieces. It was an apt setting for the line’s majestic, oversize cuffs, some featuring detachable brooches and pendants. The most impressive one, topped with a carved iridescent white opal seahorse, came loaded with a rich variety of coral, cultured pearls and a colorful enamel-coated fish. Also on display were 26 rings from the house’s “La Bague” (The Ring) line in a range of tourmalines. On a spookier note, de Castellane’s trio of skull pendants channeled “Day of the Dead,” cannibal and pirate themes. Sporting a lavish headdress of curling feathers carved from pink shell and mother-of-pearl, the last character had certainly raided the ship’s treasure chest, his ruby beard dripping with pear-cut diamonds.
