Chanel Toi Et Moi Ring
Chanel has put its own unmistakeable spin on the Toi et Moi ring, which sees two gemstones placed side by side on a single band as a symbol of the love and unity between two people. In Chanel’s Coco Crush versions, this concept is pushed further with two C-shaped bands that have been intertwined and made whole, with petite diamonds studding their ends. Available in two sizes in BEIGE Gold, white gold, and a BEIGE Gold and white gold version, this is literally love done with double Cs.
Van Cleef & Arpels Zip Necklace
With its ability to open and close just like the humble everyday item from which it gets its name, transforming from a statement necklace to an equally stunning bracelet, Van Cleef & Arpels’s Zip necklace has been a legend in the jewellery world since its first appearance in 1950. Here, angular lines decked with lapis lazuli, mother-of- pearl and diamonds are juxtaposed with gleaming orbs of cultured pearls, resulting in looks that are sure to turn heads every time.
Chaumet Joséphine Collection
It’s said that brand patron and muse Empress Joséphine was particularly fond of pear-cut diamonds. Thus, for its latest Joséphine editions, Chaumet returns to the alluring shape with designs that range from the casual to the imperial. Stackable rings and petite bracelets bearing the oval motif sit next to royal tiaras and necklaces that drip with teardrop diamonds—all united with an easy grace and sophistication. Then there’s the new range of Joséphine Aigrette watches that sports an ingenious bracelet strap that coils around the wrist with no clasp or buckle in sight.
Chanel’s Latest High Jewellery Collection: Escale à Venise
Comprising 70 creations inspired by Gabrielle Chanel’s favourite city, Chanel’s latest High Jewellery collection, Escale à Venise, takes you on a journey through four chapters that pay tribute to the Floating City—from the mosaic-like patterns of La Sérénissime that look to Venice’s architecture to the motifs in Gran Canale that give a tip of the hat to the city’s aqua culture. The collection also bears many House icons such as camellias and lions—in the Isole della Laguna and Spirito di Venezia ranges respectively—with a boldness that is instantly recognisable as Chanel.

Pianist Khatia Buniatishvili Is Cartier’s Latest Brand Ambassador
She gave her first concert as a soloist with the Tbilisi Chamber Orchestra when she was six. Ten years later, she placed first in Tbilisi Conservatory’s admission exams, and repeated the feat at The University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna when she was 19. Since then, French-Georgian concert pianist Khatia Buniatishvili has performed on the world’s most prestigious stages and is as passionate about humanitarian causes as she is about music—and now, hopefully, beautiful design, since she is Cartier’s newest ambassador. “[Cartier is] the golden proportion of glamour… never less, never too much,” she says.
