Valérie Messika’s latest High Jewelry collection, titled the 10th edition, finds its creative spark in the enduring vitality of the most extravagant nights during the seventies. In a quest to capture the essence of this exhilarating collection, the renowned French singer and model, Carla Bruni, has been selected as the ambassador for the new Messika High Jewelry line.
“With Midnight Sun, Messika showcases the fascinating history of these unparalleled celebrations,” said Valérie Messika. “The night spots of the time were culminating point of all the antagonisms and extravagances. Spaces far from conventions, whose hypnotic spirit continues to be a source of inspiration and desire. Who better than the magnetic Carla Bruni to embody this electric and daring theme?”
For the Ultimate Party set, Valérie Messika drew inspiration from ‘70s icons Liza Minnelli and Diana Ross. On the masterpiece necklace lies a 20.04 pear-cut yellow diamond and a 9.07-carat cushion-cut diamond. Accompanied by the matching bracelet and ring, the necklace carries the vitality of this vivacious collection.
Glitter Fever takes form across a matching set of a bedazzled necklace, a pair of earrings and a studded ring. Each square of the necklace, earrings and ring have been proportioned to best match the size of each yellow diamond bestowed.
With the Fiery set, Messika imagines the necklace for the bold with its pointed contours of the jewels providing extra confidence. A new feat of jewelry savoir-faire as the pear-shaped diamonds are surrounded by a halo and a flat surface of mirror-polished white gold.
The Messika Dancing Moon celebrates one of Messika’s signatures, the halo. On each row, oval-cut diamonds including a 2.21-carat center stone enhance the meticulous set. Accompanied by a lip jewel, a single earring and ring, the Messika Dancing Moon set is full of white gold elegance.
Last but certainly not least, the Joy Cœur collection celebrates self-love with classic heart-shaped diamonds.
