The Métamorphose sautoir
Adding a touch of audacity to every outfit, the jewels in the Dior cruise 2024 collection – dreamed up by Maria Grazia Chiuri – are sublimated by bewitching butterflies. These poetic creatures, whose finesse is imbued with beauty, magnify the Métamorphose sautoir in particular. Produced using the lost-wax casting process, these refined details are first delicately chiselled by hand.
With virtuoso meticulousness, the molten metal is injected into a mold to form the piece. These ornaments are then dressed in shades of gold, an eternal Dior code. Spreading their wings, they seem to pick at the multiple pearls that make up the necklace, in a dazzling interplay of materials and perspectives. Suffused with an irresistible lightness, this exceptional creation embodies the excellence of the artisans, where age-old gestures and innovative savoir-faire converge.
