Among the various high jewellery presentations in July, I had the chance to discover the new collection imagined by Laure-Isabelle Mellerio, new Artistic Director of the eponymous house. The collection is made up of 11 pieces that honour the cocktail ring with bright and refreshing colours.
This is a very successful first collection by the wife of Laurent Mellerio, CEO of the house since autumn 2015, who inaugurates the fifteenth family succession at the head of the company with significant double news: it is the first time that a couple has headed the house, but Laure-Isabelle Mellerio is above all the first woman to take over the Artistic Direction. We’ll be talking about the house again in the coming weeks, but in the meantime I suggest you discover the jewels initiated by this new team!
Tourmalines, coloured sapphires, rubies, beryls or acid garnets, pink coral… These are just a few examples of the gems that make up the various pieces admirably produced by the company’s in-house workshop. Joy, a lot of fantasy, that’s what emerges from this opus which simply enchanted me. Enjoy your discovery!
