For its second high jewelry collection under the command of Artistic Director Francesca Amfitheatrof, Louis Vuitton travels to galaxies far away. The offering, aptly named Stellar Times, solidifies the luxury house’s obsession with and connection to travel. Why shouldn’t uncharted galaxies be the next stop in exploration and inspiration? With 90 pieces encompassing the finest in gems—from rubies and opals to sapphires and emeralds—and a design aesthetic that is both romantic and alluringly aggressive, these pieces are meant to transport their wearer from the present day into a future of unknown desire and lasting beauty.
