Editorial Reviews

Review

"A beautiful new book featuring all of the Dior Fine Jewelry collections called Dior Joaillerie is available today. Lovers of bling aren't the only ones who will fall for this photographic tome: the glitzy, avant-garde creations of designer Victoire de Castellane are bona fide art objects that toe the line between humor and extravagance. Who wouldn't want a piece her jewelry box? Here are a few gems from the book." ~Marth Stewart Living: Weddings

"Since launching Dior Fine Jewelry in 1998, Victoire de Castellane has revolutionized  the world of high jewelry design. Renowned as one of the most creative and fearless jewelry designers in the world, she is considered a trailblazer for her use of colored gemstones to create haute couture rings, necklaces, brooches, and earrings. In the first book to celebrate the timeless beauty and craftsmanship of  Dior’s fine jewelry designs, DIOR JOAILLERIE (Rizzoli; March 2012) offers readers a look inside the creative brilliance of de Castellane’s work." ~Fashion Gossip

This is a beautiful book documenting a large selection of beautiful Dior Jewelery.
The book is large and filled with full color photos as well as reproducing some artistic sketches.
The book is divided into chapters, each dealing with one of the motifs inspiring the illustrated pieces e.g.Couture, Roses, Belladone Island...etc. Each chapter is briefly introduced to explain the significance of each theme. At the end there is a photo index documenting the materials used to create each piece.
The only issues that I have with this book, is that some of the pieces are shown against a black background so the details are not that clear compared to the ones set against white backgrounds. I would have also liked to know the date of each piece. With that being said,the book is an attractive addition to any jewelery and fashion collections as it is the first comprehensive record on this subject.

I am so pleased with the purchase of this fine book. I had no idea the The House of Dior had offered the world such an outstanding collection of fantasy jewelry. There are so many beautiful photographs of collections, all divided into segments which indicate the feminine and fantastic philosophy which was distinctly Christian Dior. If you are a collector of books that showcase the unique delicacies of high French design in the world of jewelry, then this is a book that you should own.

A well thought book. First, the jewelry is out of this world, not for the faint hearts. The photos are just perfect, not only of the object but in some you can see the hallmarks (so important when studying jewelry). Also, in some photos different angles of the same jewel were included (very thoughful). And photos of the jewelry in models make it come alive. The text is short and to the point. A fascinating book for jewelry lovers. The women who use these baubles have to create the occasion to wear them!!

Many years ago, in Paris was the very first time I ever saw the actual jewelry designed for Dior. And when you see the worlmanship, stones, the mix of what is whimsical and serious with elegance, you know this is not an easy thing to do. We often miss the point of what looks easy and what is in reality, harder to do. This book remeinds me of what I heard many years ago " Between Kitsch and Elegance, it is a fine line that devides both" and here you will see what it actually means.
