Hearts and skulls: new jewelry collection Dior


Skulls have a long registration in the European culture. The most known - whether it be Shakespeare or the Dutch still lifes - are associated with moralising on death and frailty of life. The pleasure subject was meant by the benefits here and now, but was not main.

In the new Tête de mort collection ("Death face") for Victoire de Castellan's Dior just urges to remember it is that it is necessary to live each moment of life, bearing in mind Carpe Diem ("Live in the present") and Memento Mori ("Remember death"). Jewelry is a match: skulls of rings and pendants look lovely and amusing as well as for Instagramm, and for cheerful carrying in usual life. Are made of dairy quartzes of pastel shades (blue chalcedony, violet amethyst, rose quartz) and are surrounded with hearts of gold. In a mouth at amethyst - a clover leaf with a green tsavorit so it is also loaded on success in this most carefree life.

of the Skull of Victoire de Castellan already did for Dior, but in collections of high jewelry art. A triumphal series of family portraits the skulls topped with pearl and diamond crowns, decorated with jewelry high collars in the Reines et Rois collection ("Queens and kings") of 2009 looked. The hearts bleeding rubies with thorns of roses complete with the skulls covered diamond pavazhy were in collection 2001 La Fiancee du Vampire ("The vampire's bride"). These asymmetric sculptural things already became a subject of collection hunting. New lovely Tête de mort are released within a regular collection so everyone has a chance to receive the jewelry reminder on meaning of life.
