About Christian Dior Jewelry

French designer Christian Dior believes that wearing jewelry is an important part of clothing. Therefore, Dior championed the idea of wearing jewelry daily which allowed ordinary women to shine regularly. The Dior jewelry designs of the 1940s and 1950s were created with the Dior clothing line, using bright and colorful gemstones with floral patterns. Christian Dior's jewelry specializes in the production of colored rhinestones that Dior said can "illuminate and enhance the face". It is the first jewelry to use Swarovski Northern Lights rhinestones.

Dior jewelry began the first pages of its illustrious and definitive chapter in the sartorial narrative after a revolutionary season in women's fashion that re-imagined the relationship between clothing and accessories. From the beginning, Dior has designed its jewelry pieces in conjunction with their clothing lines, and the result is a cohesive and complete sartorial vision in harmony with all its internal elements.

In 1998, the official division of Dior jewelry entitled Dior Joaillerie was officially founded, opening up many new avenues and possibilities for the famous house which made costume jewelry both accessible and elegant--and made fine jewelry a harmonious component of both evening wear and everyday looks. Dior Joaillerie is today under the creative tutelage of the esteemed visionary Victoire de Castellane, who has worked at the position for the past two decades.

Dior Rings

Dior rings have always told strong stories; statement rings with symbolic images in both simple, classic and visually luxurious designs. The brand's current selection of rings adds to this historic narrative through the use of a variety of instantly recognizable forms that Christian Dior himself adored: the rose, the moon, the sun, a compass rose.

The Pop Rings from La Rose Dior are an instantly iconic addition to Dior Joaillerie that elude both to the celebration of modern iconography of the Pop Art era as well as the well-known love Christian Dior had for what is arguably the world's most famous flower. A cluster of pink sapphires are set in a careful blossom of lacquer and encircled by a soft thorny vine with delicate miniature leaves of gold and tiny diamonds. Truly statement pieces, these rings are perfect for those who understand the timelessness uniqueness of universal imagery.

Dior Necklaces

The star of the Dior necklaces selection must be the Rose des Vents collection. An elegant design that eludes to the star, the rose, and the compass is at the helm of this classically simple and beautiful collection. A wind rose is a symbol of natural inclination, as it indicates the direction of the wind. This beautiful collection then represents staying true to one's own currents--as well as to the vision of Christian Dior himself.

There are several necklaces within this collection eye catching in their stunning simplicity. 18K gold, white gold, diamonds, and mother of pearl introduce the first wind rose, which hangs on a superbly delicate chain. This theme is then re-introduced in variants of white gold with diamond, white gold with mother of pearl, onyx with rose gold, and pink mother of pearl with rose gold.

Dior Earrings

De Castellane continues her celebration of Christian Dior's inspirations with the Pre Catelan line of La Rose Dior. A diamond-encrusted bee paired with a single leaf on a wrap-around circlet ring of either rose or yellow gold that gently eludes to thorns. The bee is quite an apropos image, with its crucial role in biodiversity, and this ring makes a truly unique piece that celebrates that preciousness of nature. The Pre Catelan earrings are breathtaking in their delicacy, each petal carved with stunning precision from rose quartz, onyx, or amethyst on a thin circlet of yellow or rose gold paired with just a pinpoint of diamond.

From the playful collection Oui comes a twist on the romantic phrases we all know. A pair of ears play witness to the oft-whispered affirmation of lovers; in this case "je t'aime" is immortalized in yellow gold and diamonds. Another flirtatious pair reads "toi" and "moi". These earrings are for the young--or young at heart--who love wordplay and whimsy.

Dior Bracelets

For those design aficionados searching for the perfect piece to express their love of a more formalist style, GEM DIOR offers a myriad of bracelets stunning in their genuinely unique simplicity. One may choose between the Gem Dior Bracelet mediums of rose gold and diamonds or yellow gold and diamonds; or for those seeking a pop of natural color, the Gem Dior Cuff Bracelet features decorative stones in deep blues and rich greens alongside perfect stripes of diamonds. Each bracelet in this collection features a circlet of classic, elongated angular shapes of varying lengths interspersed with those perfect stripes of diamonds.

Within the Rose des Vents collection, the Rose Celeste and Rose des Vents combination bracelet is a timeless choice. This charming, impressive bracelet is a stunning and unique addition to your collection that features some of the oldest visual forms known to mankind. An iconic golden sun with waved rays is reminisce of Greek mythological art and dazzles alongside a shining moon emblazoned on the onyx night. These images are set together along the delicate chain with the aforementioned wind rose in rose gold.

On Opulent Jewelers, the collection of vintage Christian Dior jewelry includes rings, pendant necklaces, bracelets, watches, cufflinks, earrings, and brooches.
