“This collection expresses color in shapes. I wanted to find a way to express this fundamental phenomenon – of color, at Hermès – and build a strong, autonomous, and independent identity,” Pierre Hardy, Creative Director of Hermès Jewellery, explains.

Les Formes de la Couleur transcends traditional jewelry collections—it unfolds as a narrative with distinct chapters, each boasting its own unique aesthetic. Among this expansive collection, include the Portraits de la Couleur chapter, where rubies, beryls, and sapphires form geometric shapes. The Fresh Paint chapter mimics the fluid strokes of a painter’s brush using monochromatic stones, while Hermès Diaprés dazzles with emerald-cut diamonds and sapphires set against iridescent mother-of-pearl and baguette-cut diamonds.

Pierre Hardy comments on the use of colored stones throughout this collection:

“This is the first time in the history of Hermès that such a wide variety of stones have been used for high jewellery: emeralds, rubies, sapphires and diamonds, namely green, red, blue and white”.

Perhaps saving the best till last, even the house’s iconic Birkin bag was reimagined in a small yet fully functional jeweled version. Crafted in white or yellow gold, it meticulously mimics the texture of crocodile leather, enhanced with a lavish embellishment of nearly 3,000 diamonds, spessartites, aquamarines, amethysts, and a spectrum of pink, blue, and yellow sapphires.

We don’t have the details on the price yet, but we are quite confident, it’s the most expensive Birkin ever created.
