Louis Vuitton harkened back to Victorian elegance with Dentelle d’hiver, the latest addition to its Voyage dans le Temps high jewelry collection, designed by Lorenz Bäumer. The delicate line celebrates the timeless beauty of diamonds, with classical shapes reminiscent of Belle Epoque jewelry.
“These pieces are meant to be instantly recognizable and to make a statement,” said Hamdi Chatti, vice president of fine jewelry and watches at Louis Vuitton. Enter the star of the collection: a necklace featuring 953 diamonds set into monogram motifs on a meshwork of fine metal strands, so that some of the stones appear to float. An evolution of last season’s dainty Peter Pan collar necklace, this one comes with a detachable 2.58-carat flower-cut diamond pendant. RELATED STORY: Chanel Joaillerie Spring 2013 >>
