A look at the complex savoir faire behind Gem Dior, the house's new high jewellery and watches line

There is an undeniable quality of practicality behind every piece of couture that comes from the Dior house From the 'New Look' silhouette or the celebrated Dior Bar jacket to Maria Grazia Chiuri's embroidered tulle skirts paired with slogan T-shirts, the French house has always recognised the meaning of modern femininity Victoire de Castellane, creative director of Dior Jewellery, has come up with 'Dior Gem', a new line that pushed boundaries in craftsmanship and technical know-how in the ateliers.

At first glance, the collection of seven watches and eleven jewellery, namely rings, cuffs, and earrings, reflects cutting-edge design with a geometric flair, but in reality, Castellane was inspired by the way Monsieur Dior pinned fabric samples for his haute couture creations on paper The irregular octagonal dials in the watches, the flexible, clasp-free straps, or the slanted cuff openings trimmed with a precious studding of grain-set white diamonds, all perfectly coming together to blur the lines between watchmaking and high jewellery Ahead, discover some of the variants offered by Dior in the range of flexible link-style construction.
