Hermès Haute Bijouterie

16 Apr

Presenting Hermès’ new 14-piece jewelry line designed by Pierre Hardy, inspired by the brand’s equestrian roots. All the pieces in the collection are inspired by horses — the hoof and the whip. In explaining how the collection came about Hardy told WWD that he looked to Hermès’ history and started by “taking the roughest, strongest, almost radical element and giving it the most feminine, the most modern interpretation.” The collection features rose gold, white gold, black jade, diamonds, aventurine and pink opal, and seeks to blur the lines between femininity and masculinity. Prices start at $23,675 for a pair of rose gold clip-on earrings and top out at $880,000 for the diamond necklace. Hermés will be packaging these precious pieces in custom-made black alligator leather boxes.
