A Closer Look At Gucci’s Newest High Jewelry Releases


During Paris Haute Couture on Jan. 24, Gucci unveiled 42 new pieces that are being added to its Hortus Deliciarum (a Latin term meaning “garden of delights”) High Jewelry collection. As the third installment since the collection’s debut in 2019, the new designs draw the same inspiration from wild animals and fantastical scenes of nature while maintaining the house’s signature Italian craftsmanship.

Below, we take a closer look at five of them. From cascading white diamonds to unexpected colored gems and lions and tigers (no bears, but bows), the newest pieces may sound eclectic but together, they create a fantastical story through the jewelry artistry that Gucci has become known for.


Gucci lion necklace
Lion Head necklace, price on request

With the lion head front and center (a signature of the brand as well as the tiger head), this necklace showcases an impressive assortment of leaflike and floral diamond designs as well as underlying themes of strength and valor (traits its wearer undoubtedly shares).

Inspired by shooting stars and cascading waterfalls, this whimsical necklace, in all its splendor, took an astounding 300 hours to create.

Gucci earrings

These feminine and playful chandelier earrings with their dainty bows are the other half of the matching white gold and diamond celestial necklace.

Gucci bracelet
Bracelet in yellow gold with diamonds, price on request

One of the more geometric pieces in the collection, this chevron bracelet showcases Gucci’s detail-oriented Italian craftsmanship—and the 200 hours it takes to make it is a testament to that.

Gucci ring
Ring in white gold with a 14.7 ct. tanzanite and diamonds, price on request

Part of a series of rings inspired by the sky, this sculpted, hexagonal tanzanite piece with a backdrop of diamonds is a nod to the subject at its clearest.
