The vast and magical imagination of Gucci’s ready-to-wear-offerings always thrill with over-the-top color combinations and eye-popping silhouettes — smattered with crystals, feathers and tulle. The Italian brand’s fine jewelry pieces, in contrast, whisper with delicate discretion. The house signatures are all there, via floral-shaped diamonds, golden lion heads and even hidden “GG” symbols. But these delicious gems wield their power with quiet elegance, exquisite construction and subtle shine. Simply put: if you know, you know.
These brilliant blooms are the height of good taste.
