He’s the creative genius behind Lanvin’s playful costume jewelry. Since stepping out on his own, Elie Top has brought his signature whimsy to his eponymous line. Dubbed “Mécaniques Célestes,” his inaugural collection nods to astronomical tools of the 17th and 18th centuries. Composed of articulating compartments and interlocking cages that open and close, each piece exquisitely evokes the idea of mysteries concealed within a galaxy. Pavé diamond centerpieces become glimmering suns across rings and pendants, as semiprecious gemstones, such as onyx, quartz, and tigereye, recall planets in a constellation. Combining innovative 3-D printing techniques with time-honored hand craftsmanship, each French-made jewel is a shining example of Top’s magical universe.
