Dior Joaillerie’s Victoire de Castellane plucked the thornystem of the Dior rose for the house’s latest strategic jewelry launch, Bois de Rose, comprising a collection of thorny gold hoop earrings and rings that will hit storesin late April. Prices range from 650 euros, or $890 at current exchange, for a yellow gold ring, to 23,000 euros, or $31,000 at current exchange, for a red gold version encrusted with pink pavé diamonds. “I liked the idea of a rose’s stem wrapping around the finger,” said de Castellane of the range that was presented in an all-pink suite at the house’s headquarters, alongside a replica of a 1951 white tulle gown by ChristianDior that will be featured in the next Dior Joaillerie campaign. Also on display were two new earring and ring sets from the house’s Rose Dior Pre Catelan line, toppedwith translucent carved roses in pink quartz and chalcedony, while a splendid high jewelry rose necklace, in diamonds, emeralds and pink sapphires, led a small Précieuses Rose story. Dior also unveiled a selection of watches headed to Baselworld later this month, including the John Galliano-designed Dior Christal Haute Couture, Passage 1 timepiece inspired by a jacket from the house’s fall ’09 couture collection.
