Surrounded by exquisite ornaments of small, sparkling gemstones, a center stone in a high jewelry piece never fails to reveal its beauty, and makes a grand impact from the very first sight. No matter its size, it’s its luster and the way it is showcased amidst a rich sea of details that makes it a true show-stopper. If you are a jewelry enthusiast, you must know what we’re talking about and most probably, have felt at least once that your heart skipped a beat at the sight of an exquisite piece featuring a center stone.
This jewelry style exists since forever, yet the modern world didn’t stop some jewelry houses from giving it a makeover fit for the contemporary woman. While Van Cleef & Arpels and Chopard kept things classic and timeless in a way or another, Dior placed its center stone in the middle part of a double-finger ring between two smaller gems and Boucheron chose to set one of its marvelous Question Mark necklaces with a pink tourmaline to add sparkle to a diamond feather. As for CHANEL, its Tweed de CHANEL high jewelry collection redefined boldness with this style.
The list goes on and on but only pictures can really make you fall in love with center stones. So, here are some of our favorite exquisite creations!
