Higher Ground

Born in the Jura region of France, Louis Vuitton was a teenager when he decided to embark on a journey on foot across France to Paris where he would become a legendary master trunk-maker. In honour of his courageous spirit, Bravery is a collection of 90 emblematic pieces that retraces that remarkable saga in a metaphorical manner, from the birth of travel to modern times.
Pictured here, La Passion necklace is inspired by the mallettage that lines the interiors of the Maison’s traditional trunks, this lattice necklace in white gold set with diamonds and a precious collection of 75 round rubies was designed to feel like a second skin. La Constellation d’Hercule is tribute to the birth of Louis on August 4th, 1821, these colourful pieces of organic magnificence reference a constellation only visible at that time of year through the unique pairing of
tanzanites, opals, tsavorites, and a mist of LV Monogram Star and Flower-cut diamonds. L’Elan Vital expresses the strength of character that led Louis to leave his native Jura for Paris, this fluid, rope-like necklace is reminiscent of the way trunks were carried on a journey, reinterpreted using more than 2,500 brilliant-cut diamonds. L’Aventure represents the 400 kilometres of roads and forests that separate the Jura region from Paris, this necklace intersperses Colombian emeralds in three rows of platinum, yellow gold and white gold which are entirely pavé-set with diamonds in Damier checkerboard stone marquetry. The necklace is further enhanced by the presence of a 3+ carat LV Monogram Flower and a 5.21 carat DFL pear-shaped diamond of remarkable colour and purity. The Arrow is both a metaphor for Louis’ journey and a literal interpretation of the V in his name, the diagonally pavé-set Arrow necklace features a central V set with custom-cut rubies, sapphires and diamonds in an ode to the personal emblem of the founder’s grandson Gaston-Louis Vuitton. Reflecting Louis’ early use of his personal signature, Le Mythe is a multilayered piece of jewellery combining several emblematic Louis Vuitton motifs: the Damier pattern, trunk lock inspired details, studs, rope, and the now-iconic Monogram flower. As an epilogue to this collection and the light that guides Mr. Louis Vuitton on his journey, La Star Du Nord set depicts the metaphorical figure of the North Star with two rows of refined, graphic diamonds punctuated by a knot reminiscent of those used on the interior of trunks.
