This showstopping piece by London-based diamond house Graff features a staggering 211 rare fancy vivid yellow diamonds totaling 59.25 carats set in 18K-yellow gold.

Bulgari’s seductive new Seduttori Serpenti draws on a long history of the brand’s famed Serpenti collection, but this time it’s been reinvented to be even thinner. In pink, yellow, and white gold, the watch comes with a new flexible bracelet and a case crowned with cabochon-cut gemstones.

Chanel’s Boyfriend watches have been a hit since their launch in 2015. This new, 20-piece collection is a chic update and pays homage to Coco Chanel’s love of tweed with a high-fired enamel “tweed” dial. The accessory, set in an 18K-beige-gold case, is powered by a manually wound movement.
