Between eye-catching color combinations and a range of inspiration, the collection conjures the most dazzling of creations imaginable.  One highlight of the collection, the Oriental Princess necklace, with a detachable clip, merges the Maison’s renowned tradition of sourcing exceptional stones and gleaning inspiration from Oriental influences.  Diamonds and Mozambique rubies dance around the collar with the necklace’s volutes, evoking an aura redolent of One Thousand and One Nights and the enchanting Scheherazade.
