De Grisogono Melody of Colours ring
Semi-precious, swimming-pool blue turquoise gemstones are a perennial favourite when the weather turns warm.
De Grisogono would not be De Grisogono without a mix of vivid colours. In this Melody of Colours ring, 34 bead-cut turquoise weighing 33 carats surrounding an extravagant 85.75 carat cabochon-cut amethyst. More amethysts are set into the pink gold ring, further emphasising the pale blue-green of the surrounding turquoise beads.
This pair of Chopard Red Carpet Collection earrings is another stunner. First debuted on the ears of Spanish actress Bianca Suarez at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, the dangly, vibrant earrings are made more flamboyant with seven carats of azure turquoise beads, diamonds and garnets, paired with 47 carats of pear-shaped rubellites.
Skull rings, with its momento mori motif, remain a Dior signature.prays of pink, yellow and blue sapphires, diamonds, spessartite garnets, Paraiba-type tourmalines and tsavorite garnets set in yellow gold surround a 22.41 carat turquoise skull, with two brilliant-cut diamonds for eyes, in this witty juxtaposition of life and death.
Van Cleef & Arpels’ zip necklaces have long since become the jewellery maison’s most recognisable transformative masterpiece. This version comes in white gold with jade, turquoise and chrysoprase. Zipped up, the necklace becomes an ornate bracelet, and was first created at the behest of the Duchess of Windsor.
