Step into the whimsical world of Dior Joaillerie's Rose des Vents collection, as we discover its new red-themed pieces in time for Valentine's Day and the Lunar New Year

It was in a beautiful 19th-century villa on a cliff overlooking the town of Granville in Normandy, France where Christian Dior spent much of his childhood.

Built by a shipowner and named Villa les Rhumbs—after the nautical term for the compass points of a wind rose “rhumbs"—the beautiful home was decorated with wind rose motifs.

Today, the nostalgic symbol that the young Dior grew up with graces Dior Joaillerie's Rose des Vents collection, which also evokes his favourite flower, the rose, and his lucky charm, the star.

The collection comprises necklaces, bracelets and rings in white, yellow and rose gold featuring a medallion decorated on one side with a wind rose set with a diamond. On the other side is mother-of-pearl, lapis lazuli, turquoise, malachite, onyx or pink opal, and sometimes with a sprinkle of diamonds.

To celebrate Lunar New Year and Valentine’s Day, the French maison introduced a red version to its Rose Des Vents collection. We see the fiery colour in its earrings, rings, necklaces and bracelets. Not to be left out, the La Mini D de Dior Rose des vents and La de Dior Satine timepieces, as well now come with a red lacquer dial.

Explore the suite of fine jewellery the Rose des Vents collection has to offer at two pop-up store locations in Hong Kong—one at Pacific Place II in Admiralty, open from till February 28, and another at Elements in Tsim Sha Tsui which will go from March 6 to 15.
