The Most Outrageous Pieces of Jewelry from Paris Couture Week

Paris Haute Couture is a special time of year where the top fashion houses put their best pieces forward twice a year with beautiful, handcrafted designs. In July, it seems as though the jewelry houses also get in on the fun, showing their own best offerings to both editors and the customers who may just scoop up a piece or two. This time around, the jewelry designers certainly did not disappoint. There was a mix of everything, suitable for virtually every customer, from titanium pieces in bright orange studded with diamonds from Suzanne Syz to David Yurman’s one of a kind high jewelry collection designed by the founder’s son, Evan Yurman. Smaller brands like Ana Khouri and Dauphin also put out an impressive presentation of high jewelry, proving that its not only the classic brands that are worth investing in when it comes to building a private collection. Here, the most gorgeous, opulent pieces of the week.
