With her latest collection, Mimirose, Victoire de Castellane subtly marks Dior Joaillerie’s 20th anniversary by bringing together two favorite signatures: the fine chains and precious stones of Mimioui and the delicate, twisted rice grain settings of Rose des vents.
“Being superstitious by nature, I would always look around for a piece of wood to touch,” confessed Christian Dior in his memoirs. Cue a collection of rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces symbolizing lucky talismans, building on the tradition of the Rose des vents line as a holder and transmitter of life’s most precious moments. The jewels come in yellow or pink-gold versions mixed with diamonds, rubies or emeralds,
each a symbol of protection.
Created by the Artistic Director of Dior Joaillerie, as collectible lucky charms for whenever impulse strikes, the line’s range of refined, asymmetrical pieces includes ear studs that can be worn single or as part of a pair.
Whatever the occasion - be it a first diamond, a love token, one for the collection of family heirlooms or a celebration of eternal friendship - the possibilities are endless for layering rings, bracelets and necklaces, either matching or mixing pieces. With their sensual miniature dimensions, the collection of Mimirose lucky charms like intimate secrets are meant to be held close, subtly interacting with the skin like lace, as eternal totems traversing time.
