Jewellery has been a quintessential element in fashion from time immemorial, enhancing an outfit with an air of refinement and sophistication. This year, heritage and boutique brands alike visibly up the ante with a plethora of jewellery collections that are sure to elevate one’s style game. Here are the best ones so far.

Art Deco by Roberto Coin

The epitome of Art Deco elegance, the collection stuns, showcasing graphic lines repeated with precision and symmetry, interrupted only by fluid elements like tassels and chains of irregular little orbs. The coloured stones—black jade, mother-of-pearl, lapis lazuli, malachite, and turquoise—also play a crucial part in establishing that character. The most opulent of them all is the haute couture version, which is dressed in brilliant diamonds.

Tressage by Cartier

Cartier Libre, synonymous with feminine timepieces, veers into the realm of jewellery with the Tressage collection. Reinterpreting the legendary Jeanne Toussaint’s aesthetics, the pieces boast amplified volumes, unique goldsmithing, and an interplay of contrasts through colours and texture. One of the highlights here is actually a cape. The silk-like jewellery set was spotted on Zoe Saldana at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party last month.

Happy Diamonds Planet by Chopard

Jewellery makes the world go round and Chopard knows it. Its latest collection, the Happy Diamonds Planet, pays homage to mother earth with spherical-shaped natural stones—green agate, blue lapis lazuli, black onyx, and pink rhodochrosite. Crafted in ethical 18-carat rose gold and paired with dancing diamonds, the series of bangles, necklaces, rings, and earrings further symbolise Chopard’s commitment to preserving nature.

Arowana by Habib

Diving underwater for inspiration, Habib comes up to the surface with Arowana. The freshwater bony fish, treasured for its luminous scales and sinuous body, lends its geometric and fluid shapes to several creations including the diamond necklace that showcases a concave and convex design, akin to the scales of the dragonfish. The 18k rose gold necklace is adorned with diamonds and nacre that creates a dazzling effect.

Tiffany Lock by Tiffany & Co.

The staple lock-and-key style at Tiffany & Co. has been reimagined for the women of today with the launch of the Tiffany Lock collection. Smooth and streamlined in design, the lock motif has been turned into a series of bangles, rings, earrings and pendants in sumptuous rose gold. The new range also parades Tiffany & Co.’s latest innovation to the bangle, which is an elegant swivelling mechanism that allows the wrist jewel to open and close.

Metamorphosis by De Beers

Metamorphosis captures the perpetual change of the seasons to perfection with its transformable pieces. The Prelude necklace, for instance, illustrates the buds of spring with the bead-set white diamonds and star-set yellow diamonds; the rippling of summer sand with a twisted rope of diamond-studded yellow gold; the autumn leaves with brown diamonds set in rose-gold triangles; and the biting beauty of winter with white gold serti neige.

Lucky Spring by Van Cleef & Arpels

Endlessly enthralled by the metamorphoses of flora and fauna, Van Cleef & Arpels debuted the Lucky Spring collection in 2021. Today, four new pieces—two pendants, a Between the Finger ring, and a bracelet—bloom in the garden. The novelties come alive with delicate motifs of the ladybug, plum blossom, and lily of the valley bud in a vibrant palette of rose gold, white mother-of-pearl, onyx, and carnelian.
