4. Piaget Possession Watch
The ultimate symbol of glamour, this new diamond jewelry watch from Piaget draws inspiration from the brand’s Possession rings from the 1990s.

10. Van Cleef & Arpels Ludo Secret Watch
Secret watches have a special place in the world of haute horologie and are considered more akin to luxurious jewels. Van Cleef & Arpel’s latest Ludo design—exquisitely crafted in rose gold with rubies, coral, white mother-of-pearl, and diamonds—has its roots in the early 20th century, when checking the time in genteel company was considered a social faux pas, so watch faces were tucked beneath a precious gemstone.

Symbolizing a romantic union, this 18-karat gold Crossover ring, handcrafted by David Webb in the Manhattan workshop, entwines two pear-shaped cabochon coral stones that are surrounded by brilliant-cut diamonds.
13. Dior Rose des Vents Earrings
Creative director Victoire de Castellane reinterprets the compass motif engraved in the floor of Christian Dior’s family home in Granville, France into the whimsical jewelry collection Rose des Vents. These dainty earrings feature thin slices of pink opal set with diamonds and fanciful cuts of 18-karat pink gold that form an eight-point star.
14. Messika Diamond Necklace
Valerie Messika has melded her distinctly edgy, contemporary sensibility with a deep respect for precious stones learnt from her father, the famous diamond merchant André Messika. This twist on a classic diamond necklace features alternating emerald- and pear-cut diamonds in a pattern that seems to playfully dance across the neck.
15. Cartier [Sur]Naturel Earrings
A pair of mesmerizing earrings from Cartier’s recent [Sur]Naturel high jewelry collection in 18k white gold with two cushion-shaped rubellites totaling 11.34-carats and 136 brilliant-cut diamonds totaling 1.57-carats.
