About the Designer

Christian Dior -founded in 1947 Paris- is one of the elite fashion houses to bring costume jewellery to the mainstream.

As a rule I would use jewellery generously to get the most out of it. A many stoned necklace of rhinestones for instance, will look lovely with a décolleté frock for evening. It will go equally with a fine black knitted sweater for afternoons,” – Christian Dior.

Dior differed from many designers with his use of jewellery. He believed that jewellery was as much a part of fashion as clothing was. The jewellery for each look was designed in detail to complement his clothing collections.

By 1948, Dior opened a fashion house called “Dior Costume Jewelry” in Germany. Dior jewellery was inspired by nature; many designs since the late ’40s featured depictions of animals and floral motifs. Dior himself spent much of his time in the French countryside, and the scenery clearly influenced much of his work, including jewellery.

Christian Dior commissioned only the finest designers and companies to make high-quality costume jewelry for his fashion collections. In the US he hired designers such as Schreiner and Kramer; in England, Mitchel Maer; in Germany, Henkel & Grosse; and in France, Robert Goossens and Josette Gripoix.
