Dior


High Jewelry | Dior, Jewellery, French Heritage

The House of Dior was established on 16 December 1946 by French fashion designer Christian Dior at 30 Avenue Montaigne in Paris. Just as the rose was close to Christian Dior's heart, it is also close to Victoire de Castellane's imagination, the Artistic Director of Dior Jewelery, as she interprets its form in precious jewels.

Even before the piece of jewelery exists, Victoire de Castellane can visualize how it will look like when complete. As an example, she recognizes every detail of the Rose Dior Bagatelle and knows that it will be a flower with petals set with diamonds evoking glistening morning dew.

She hands a sketch to her studio designers who make an initial line drawing in gray and white, then another in gouache to recreate the subtleties of the shades of the stones, and nuances of the materials. On paper, each color represents one of the precious stones that will adorn the ring. Once approved, the sketch is sent to one of Paris' top ateliers to be created.
