Gucci, the first high jewelry collection 

Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s artistic director, showcases his entire world in this collection, which presents a mix of Baroque, Rococo and Georgian pieces. There are Cupid’s arrows set in tremblants, crucifixes or a fantastic bestiary. The ensemble, colored with pink topazes, aquamarines, green tourmalines or mandarin garnets, is however less creative and original than his fashioncollections. This collection (to be discovered in the new boutique on Place Vendôme) could further boost the extraordinary growth (+37% in 2018) of the millennials’ favorite brand.
