Jewels: Out of this world

Hudson River

With sapphires and opals, lapis and aquamarines, emeralds and jade, this crop of jewels calls to mind visions of the globe, an earthly paradise of blues and greens. For Louis Vuitton's Escale à Paris collection, artistic director Lorenz Baumer drew on aerial views of the City of Light, as seen in the orderly geometry of the tanzanite, tsavorites and diamond Orangerie des Tuileries brooch. Meanwhile, from Harry Winston's New York collection, the diamond and sapphire River bracelet was inspired by the Hudson River. And L.A..-based jeweler Irene Neuwirth's one-of-a-kind opal collar, with striations of blue, coral and green, evokes the power of the ocean just steps away from her Venice home.
