For the 13th consecutive year, from May 13th to 24th 2015, the Geneva-based jeweler-watchmaker will be ‘divinely’ highlighting women’s natural beauty with outstanding and dazzling High Jeweler creations, making them glamorous icons in their own right.
Fawaz Gruosi, a passionate gemmologist and gifted designer, has created a collection of one-of-a-kind High Jewelry masterpieces and the ‘Melody of Colours’ collection which will be presented for the first time at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
The creations are graced with exceptional stones whose cuts and colours are arranged in unique compositions embodying de GRISOGONO’s uncompromising creative approach.
Among the ‘divine’ creations to be worn by celebrities on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival, de GRISOGONO is providing a sneak peek of three compositions that encapsulate the aesthetic constants and distinctive signatures that have raised its creations to iconic status for the last 22 years.
Created around sublime gemstones such as emeralds, the rarest variety of beryl; blue sapphires – a variety of corundum meaning azure blue; amethysts, the most sought-after mineral in the entire quartz family; and turquoises, the magic amulet stones, showcasing an array of dazzling hues recalling the thousands shades of blues and greens of the sea. Their enchanting and mesmerising character works its unique magic, through colour combinations testifying to de GRISOGONO’s perfectly trained eye for selecting gemstones and revealing their inner beauty.
