Mitza

The “Mitza” ring, designed by Victoire de Castellane for Dior Joaillerie, was inspired by Mitzah Bricard and takes the form of a feline paw in gold speckled with black lacquer. This elegant figure from the 1950s, who often dressed in leopard-skin as we see in the photograph by Cecil Beaton, was the muse of Christian Dior.
