New bees, with a necklace and a pair of earrings, in the Le Marché des Merveilles collection by Gucci ♦ ︎
Gucci launched its Le Marché des Merveilles collection in 2015. Over time it has added new pieces, including two in 2019. Inspired by the previous Merveilles models, the Maison has integrated a bee motif on a pair of earrings and on the pendant combined. The pieces are made of 18 carat yellow and white gold, with an elaborate pavé of white diamonds and completed by the Gucci double G logo. The bees are added to the tigers that already populate the Gucci collection.
As in the jewels available in recent years, the design is realistic, with streaks and bee antennas clearly visible. Furthermore, the insect’s wings are mobile and add a touch of realism (but these bees do not sting, quiet). Prices on average fluctuate between 1300 and 5000 euros. Lavinia Andorno
