One look at the four-petaled flower, in either its diamond or circular form, and you’ll know it’s Louis Vuitton. Elegantly simple but unmistakable, the Monogram Flower was created in 1896 by Georges Louis-Vuitton and is one of the brand’s key symbols, signifying both the heritage and savoir-faire of the French luxury house. It has lent itself to countless iterations over the years—from adorning the classic Speedy in its original brown to audacious style collaborations with Takashi Murakami (in multicolor) and Yayoi Kusama (juxtaposed with her pumpkin dots). This season, the beloved Monogram Flower is at the heart of the fine jewelry collection, aptly entitled “Blossom.”

In a return to classic sophistication, the color palette is inspired by Louis Vuitton’s trademark colors of warm shades of brown and gold, featuring tiger’s eye, carnelian, and mother-of-pearl in gray or white. Flowers are sculpted from mother-of-pearl and ornamental stones and set in fine chains of yellow or rose gold, evoking a sense of delicate femininity. Meticulously handcrafted and polished over a period of several months to perfect the subtle curves and sparkle of the stones, the three- dimensional work allows the Monogram Flower to virtually “blossom” across the sautoir necklaces, pendants, bracelets, and earrings of the Blossom jewelry collection.


There is beauty and harmony in the smallest details: the demure sheen of mother-of-pearl, the sparkle of diamonds amongst the flowers, miniature gold nails—echoing those used on Louis Vuitton trunks— driven through the heart of certain petals. Delicate and understated yet imbued with a sensual charm, the Blossom collection allows one of the classic Louis Vuitton symbols to flower according to the tenets of the house’s art of jewelry.
