From ready-to-wear and fashion timepieces to fragrance and makeup, Gucci has moved on to venture into finer sections of luxury as it unveils its first-ever high jewellery collection, titled "Hortus Deliciarum", designed by creative director Alessandro Michele.
Named after the medieval illustrated encyclopedia, Hortus Deliciarum captures the now-signature eclectic, poetic and mythical codes of Gucci with more than 200 pieces under three different divine themes.
The first theme is an ode to eternal love, where clear, vivid gemstones are employed to portray the lovely romance; while the second chapter tells a tale of the animal kingdom, bringing the spirit of nature to life with ornate diamond settings; and finally, the third mirrors Alessandro Michele's lyrical and eclectic interpretation of florals with a parade of divine solitaires.

Together with the debut Hortus Deliciarum, Gucci has also unveiled a new flagship boutique at Place Vendôme, Paris, and unlike every other Gucci boutique, the verdeacqua-themed interior evokes a noble, muted tone for the sophisticated space which is now dedicated to the Italian house's high jewellery collection.
