Discover TÊTE DE MORT

  • “Great celebrations are essential because they bring us joy.” —Christian Dior

AN ODE TO LIFE

  • “Memento Mori” and Carpe Diem” are two Latin expressions that served as jumping off points for Victoire de Castellane’s Tête de Mort jewelry collection. Inspired by Christian Dior’s love for life, these intricate pieces serve as reminders to cherish every moment.

METICULOUS EXPERTISE

  • After the stones are carefully selected by Dior, master craftsmen produce the exquisite and incredibly complex Tête de Mort collection in the best French workshops.

HIDDEN SYMBOLS IN EACH CREATION

  • Inspired by Christian Dior’s many lucky charms, the Tête de Mort collection is rich in symbolism. A garnet clover accents the amethyst creation. A lily-of-the-valley crown—a nod to the flower the couturier once tucked into the hems of his haute couture dresses—encircles the blue chalcedony skull. Small pink gold hearts dotted with diamonds punctuate the pink quartz, promising eternal love.

THREE SHADES

Each color in the Tête de Mort collection symbolizes a state of mind. Blue chalcedony signifies strength; powder pink quartz represents tranquility; and soft violet amethyst symbolizes balance. Pick a piece of jewelry to fit your personality.
