This year's Haute Couture Fashion Week was not different from 2020 with most of the catwalk shows took place behind closed doors or switched to digitally streamed events, and the world's most prestigious jewellery Maisons unveiled their latest Haute Joaillerie Creations. Some of the spectacular, high jewellery collections were created despite the lockdown and were presented on time. The clients and fans welcomed a sparkling dose of beauty and craft virtuosity: salve for the soul in the greyest of winters. Many jewellers managed to unveil truly spectacular jewellery collections this season, inspired by everything from the natural world to NASA.
I have selected some of the sparkling highlights worth dreaming about here for your attention.
