This summer, Louis Vuitton unveiled the new LV Diamonds jewelry collection, a full line of rings, pendants, bangles and earrings, including the highlight of the collection: the LV Monogram star is a uniquely cut diamond in blooming flower shape that goes back to the 1700s when King Louis XV of France first commissioned such a stone.

It’s quite the showpiece, but Louis Vuitton didn’t finish grabbing headlines this summer, releasing more fine jewelry pieces for the Empreinte collection first shown in 2004.

The inspiration for the pieces comes from the impression of trunk studs etched into the 18k yellow, white or rose gold pieces for both men and women. Naturally, the iconic LV initials are present, first designed in 1896 by Georges Vuitton who succeeded his father as head of the legendary Maison.

Again, Monogram flowers are also part of the designs, and intertwined bracelets mimic the leather straps of Louis Vuitton’s famous luggage trunks for the association of travel and adventure. A long necklace can also be worn as a bracelet, and the hoops and ear cuffs can mix and match for added versatility with your outfits…
