A new High Jewellery showcase at Harrods brings together 21 of the world’s finest jewellery marques for an enchanting new exhibition that highlights the beauty of colour
Head to Harrods during August for a glimpse of the glistening new High Jewellery collections, unveiled during Paris Couture Week. An exuberant new exhibition within the Fine Jewellery Room showcases extraordinary, one-of-a-kind pieces from 21 of the world’s finest jewellery houses, under the collective theme of colour.
Lose yourself amid an enchanting kaleidoscope of colourful gemstones and rare diamonds, inspired by regal gardens, opulent parties, sailing boats and scintillating sunsets.
Dior reimagines the Palace of Versailles’ historic flowerbeds in a myriad of multi-coloured stones and rare diamonds, while Faberge’s Secret Garden collection is a magical array of twinkling technicolour, inspired by Russian artist Mark Chagall’s paintings of floral bouquets.
While Faberge takes its cue from Russian painters, Boucheron honours Russian winters. Frozen landscapes and icicles are reimagined in diamonds and dazzling icy sapphires.

Vivid emeralds glitter in abundance at Boghossian, Cartier and Harry Winston, while Piaget’s new sun-kissed fine jewellery collection evokes a glowing sunset, bursting with yellow diamonds and flaming gemstones.
Bulgari’s celebratory new Festa collection is an exuberant explosion of colour, which playfully reimagines lollipops, ice-cream and even chilli peppers in hefty cabochons and tiers of vibrant gemstones, laced with diamonds.
Chanel’s diamond anchors and sapphire knots make up Flying Cloud, a sailing-inspired high jewellery collection so-called after the yacht owned by Coco Chanel and the Duke of Westminster, which they would sail on the Riviera.
While the jewellery undoubtedly takes centre stage in the exhibition, Harrods has also transformed its walls with design sketches and photography that depict the exquisite craftsmanship, extraordinary imagination and uncompromising elegance behind each resplendent piece of high jewellery.
