Christian Lacroix epitomises luxury. His line of statement jewellery features romantic motifs - from hearts to roses and sea shells. The designer’s retrospective style comes from years of studying art history - originally Lacroix wanted to be a museum curator. Launching his couture line 1987, the vintage-inspired pieces he created were elaborate and eccentric - they propelled him to instant success. His range of earrings, bracelets, necklaces, brooches and pendants are crafted from gold and punctuated with precious stones, jewels and gems.
