Bvlgari’s ‘Fiorever’ collection combines the Italian word for “flower” and the English word “forever”, which means these spectacular pavé jewelry flowers are meant to last forever. Just in time for the holiday season, some of the pieces in Bvlgari’s new ‘Fiorever’ collection feature yellow diamonds for the first time ever, but they’re only available in limited quantities due to the rarity of the stone.

With stars and comets serving as powerful inspiration for Mademoiselle Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel, the Chanel ‘Comète’ fine jewelry collection has been especially significant for the French house.

Speaking of bringing your fine jewelry out of hiding, the woman who practically invented that trend is Valérie Messika of Messika Paris. Her idea was to start pairing rare diamonds with your denim. Casual. Now, ultimate cool-girl Kate Moss is starring in the campaign for Messika’s amazing new collection called ‘Lucky Moves’. We call that an across-the-board win.

The jaw-dropping ‘Padma’ collection by Noor Fares owes its stunning geometry to the lotus flower – otherwise known as the “sacred flower” – that features an enduringly timeless shape.
