25 Jewels Worthy of Legendary Fashion Editor Diana Vreeland: A Big and Bold Gift Guide

BY // 12.18.18

Editor’s note: PaperCity’s counting down to the holidays with ultra-curated and distinctive gift guides.

The great fashion editor Diana Vreeland loved nothing more than all things big and bold — and making statements in the most outlandish, eye-catching way. In a 1969 memo written to her editorial staff at Vogue, she declared, “We must carry on with beautiful rings. Don’t forget David Webb, Tiffany and Van Cleef.”

A tusk on a heavy chain, a Jean Schlumberger brooch worn on her sleeve, David Webb’s zebra on her wrist, Verdura Byzantine and Maltese cuffs, all beloved totems of the great D.V.

With a thirst for the eccentric, the Empress of Style sought jewels with a vivid stroke.

We’ve curated 25 of the most Vreeland-worthy jewels available this season for the ultimate gift guide.
