In spite of combating perhaps one of the most challenging periods in history, the world’s leading jewellery brands have served up a truly arresting array of high jewellery collections this year, inspired by everything from the celestial bodies of outer space to the flora and fauna found on planet Earth itself.
Adorned with diamonds, sapphires, rubies and a veritable treasure trove of other precious gems, there are bracelets in the latest High Jewellery 2021 collections for every occasion. Those in search for something subtler, for instance, could do far worse than give David Morris’ sleek yellow and pink diamond bangle or Chaumet’s pure white Torsade de Chaumet number a thorough perusal.
For truly show-stopping creations, haute joaillerie aficionados are absolutely spoilt for choice. To start, there’s De Beers’ desert dune-inspired Namib Wonder cuff, with its dual-tone yellow and white diamond layers fringed with dangling white rough diamonds that swish to and fro.
Then there’s the ruby and diamond-laden Ison bracelet from Van Cleef & Arpels, named for the eponymous comet that exploded after coming into contact with our sun.
Rounding out the list of standouts is luxury label Chopard’s stunning Red Carpet Collection 2021 cuff, whose bright kaleidoscopic hues will surely ensnare any passing gaze.
