<< Back to Robb Report, December 2008

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.
