Marking the 200th anniversary of Mr. Louis Vuitton’s birth in 1821, the Bravery High Jewellery collection pays tribute to an exceptional destiny by reinterpreting the Maison’s signatures.

Actress and Louis Vuitton House Ambassador Alicia Vikander showcases pieces from the new Bravery High Jewellery Collection.

Born in the Jura region of France, Louis Vuitton was a teenager when he decided to embark on a journey on foot across France to Paris where he would become a legendary master trunk-maker. In honour of his courageous spirit, Bravery is a collection of 90 emblematic pieces that retraces that remarkable saga in a metaphorical manner, from the birth of travel to modern times.

La Constellation d’Hercule

A tribute to the birth of Louis on August 4th, 1821, these colourful pieces of organic magnificence reference a constellation only visible at that time of year through the unique pairing of tanzanites, opals, tsavorites, and a mist of LV Monogram Star and Flower-cut diamonds.

L’Elan Vital

Expressing the strength of character that led Louis to leave his native Jura for Paris, this fluid, rope-like necklace is reminiscent of the way trunks were carried on a journey, reinterpreted using more than 2,500 brilliant-cut diamonds.

L’Aventure

To represent the 400 kilometers of roads and forests that separate the Jura region from Paris, this necklace intersperses Colombian emeralds in three rows of platinum, yellow gold and white gold which are entirely pavé-set with diamonds in Damier checkerboard stone marquetry. The necklace is further enhanced by the presence of a 3+ carat LV Monogram Flower and a 5.21 carat DFL pear-shaped diamond of remarkable colour and purity.

The Arrow

Both a metaphor for Louis’ journey and a literal interpretation of the V in his name, the diagonally pavé-set Arrow necklace features a central V set with custom-cut rubies, sapphires and diamonds in an ode to the personal emblem of the founder’s grandson Gaston-Louis Vuitton.

Curling around the hollow of the neck like an ultra-precious scarf, The Arrow necklace’s tip sparkles with a 2.61-carat D IF LV Monogram Flower diamond and a sumptuous Sri Lankan sapphire with a perfect royal blue crystal weighing over 26 carats. Echoing the motif at the centre of the necklace, The Arrow earrings are shown being crafted in the Maison’s ateliers.

Le Mythe

Reflecting Louis’ early use of his personal signature, Le Mythe is a multi-layered piece of jewellery combining several emblematic Louis Vuitton motifs: the Damier pattern, trunk lock-inspired details, studs, rope, and the now-iconic Monogram flower.

Requiring over 1,300 hours of work to create, this three-row diamond necklace presents three sugarloaf cabochons of unearthly perfection: a 19.70-carat Sri Lankan sapphire in a divine royal blue colour, an 8.64-carat Colombian emerald with a deep bright green colour and a vibrant, velvety-soft 7.11-carat Madagascan sapphire.

La Passion

Inspired by the mallettage that lines the interiors of the Maison’s traditional trunks, this lattice necklace in white gold set with diamonds and a precious collection of 75 round rubies was designed to feel like a second skin.

Le Tumbler

Invented by Louis in 1890, the patented unpickable Tumbler lock inspired Francesca Amfitheatrof to bring the mechanism’s angular shape to High Jewellery for the first time, reinterpreted in diamonds with Santa Maria-type cerulean aquamarines.

La Star du Nord

As an epilogue to this collection and the light that guides Mr. Louis Vuitton on his journey, this set depicts the metaphorical figure of the North Star with two rows of refined, graphic diamonds punctuated by a knot reminiscent of those used on the interior of trunks.

Alongside the knotted white gold, an exceptional Monogram Flower has been placed made of a 10.07-carat Type IIA D IF diamond enhanced with an LV Monogram Star cut. This stone of incomparable purity can also be removed from its necklace setting to be worn alone as a ring.
