FrontRunners: Garden Variety

The Dior Joaillerie Milly Carnivora collection (212.931.2950) comprises bejeweled rings, earrings, and pendants displaying eight different designs based on carnivorous flowers. The flowers are made of 18-karat gold painted with acid-green, fuchsia, and turquoise lacquer and accented with colorful gemstones. Among the collection’s pieces, which are priced from about $13,000 to $1 million, is a brightly colored ring with petals that open to reveal gems. In addition to the one-of-a-kind pieces, Dior Joaillerie offers a line of diamond jewelry painted with clear, glittery lacquer.
