Seeing red: Jewellery to take you from Valentine’s Day through Chinese New Year

With one holiday immediately following the other this year, you’ll need the gems that do double duty. Here are a few of our favourites.

Chopard Happy Hearts gets you in the mood for love with a new variation in 18k rose gold and powder pink rosé stone. A sautoir, pendant, earrings, bracelets and rings bear the collection’s signature mobile diamonds. As Caroline Scheufele, co-president, says, “If I were to associate Chopard with an object, it would be a big heart, because there is a family behind it.”

Ahead of Valentine’s Day, Bulgari launches Serpenti in Love, a collection of accessories fashioned with black or red calf leather and enamel. The Serpenti contraire bracelet reimagines the double-snakehead motif as a passionate kiss between a viper and a heart.

Long a favourite design of red-carpet regulars, Harry Winston‘s Winston Cluster is now available adorned with emeralds, sapphires and rubies. The motif, created by the House’s head designer Nevdon Koumrouyan, was inspired by a decorative holly wreath Harry Winston spotted in the 1940s.

 

If you’re going for a tonal look this season, the vivid, playful Chaumet Jeux de Liens jewellery collection provides the perfect opportunity. Lacquer in the shades of madder red, vibrant orange and tyrian pink pay tribute to its centuries-old Chinese heritage. The range comprises bracelets, pendants, ear studs and a sautoir, all available starting this month.

The Dior Rose des Vents collection gets a seasonal update. Diamond and pink gold earrings, necklaces, bracelet and ring feature red ceramic lacquer as a bold backdrop for Monsieur Dior’s star and rose lucky charms. To round off the festivities, this same red lacquer has been bestowed on dials of the La Mini D de Dior Rose des Vents and La D de Dior Satine timepieces.
