First work dedicated to the know-how of the jeweller of the place 

Vendôme, Dior Joaillerie (Rizzoli, March, 2012) gives to the readers 

an immersion into the job of its artistic director. 

Scooping out her inspiration from a mixture of culture pop, of 

plant motives and of details dressmaking, the work of Victoire de 

Castellane reflects a playful mind, where the knots of diamonds 

remind of undone cordons, where ladybugs are varnished, 

where rings bloom as flowers, where naive living beings 

are reinvented in opals and multicoloured styles, where 

snakes, salamanders and frogs are bedecked with jewel, with emeralds,

where the heads of death carry crowns of 

diamonds and where roses dress the nicest dress of ball …

This book, richly illustrated with more than 200 colour photographs, invites to discovery of 

know-how, of the aesthetics and the collections of Dior Joaillerie. It leans besides on 

an erudite and poetic text of Michèle Heuzé, historian of the jewel, which plunges us in 

the world of the luxury and French refinement.

Michèle Heuzé is jewel historian and gemmologue. In 2005, she was commissioner of an exhibition 

on vanguard in jewellery-making. It accomplished a documentary on the French jewellery-making in 2008 and has 

contributed to numerous magazines, as The Stamp, the object of art, and catalogues of exhibitions.
