About Christian Dior
Once in a lifetime you discover a designer that completely takes your breath away and for us it has to be the insanely talented couturier, Christian Dior.
With a glorious spectrum of incredible and intricately-made works of wearable art, Dior’s unique, seventy plus year, heritage of designing and crafting jewellery remains unrivalled, even today.
Ranging from delicate and ultra-feminine floral necklaces that simply ooze romance, to mythical, working musical box pins and punk style crystal embellished logo pieces, such as the iconic oversized safety pin, his jewellery transcends the ages.
Monsieur Dior’s heritage is like a golden thread, now delicately woven throughout each of the seven Dior decades, as successive artistic directors have referenced and reinterpreted his designs. In creating the DNA for the House of Dior’s jewel line, he established a rich heritage, while leaving space and freedom for future designers to cast their own inimitable mark on the Dior jewellery collections.
