There is nothing more precious and meaningful than a jewel, with its great symbolic and intrinsic value. And all this becomes even more true when a man gives it to his woman. This is why Valentine’s Day represents the best moment for a romantic gesture, with jewels made to last over time. Between tradition and modernity, the Spring-Summer 2018 catwalks are an ideal source of inspiration for finding gift ideas that best suit the personality of the receiver. Here is a selection of perfect pieces to celebrate this poetic day, especially chosen by Vogue editorial staff.
Chloé adorns her models’ neckline with simple gold necklaces embellished with a lucky charm and Valentino enhances the face with ball earrings decorated with colourful gemstones and metal chains.
Erdem gets inspired by the past, focusing on retro pendants featuring delicate birds and traditional pearls, all marked by an ethereal and ultra-feminine romantic allure.
A philosophy also followed by Dolce & Gabbana but aimed at a more opulent and colourful appeal: hairbands, necklaces and earrings are adorned with faceted rainbow stones set in golden frames, giving the wearer almost a princess-like elegance.
Definitely more minimal and contemporary, however, the jewels spotted on Céline catwalk. They range from bracelets and golden chain necklaces to pendants with white baroque pearls, gold torchon earrings and cuffs that mix leather and metal, playing with shapes and clean lines.
But for those looking for something really sparkling, Saint Laurent offers the best choice. With bracelets and long drop pendants in shiny crystals, made to light up the face of every woman but also her heart.
