It’s become a tradition of Paris Couture Week to end on a glittering high note. I say that in the most literal sense because the end of the couture shows is always marked by the season’s display of Haute Joaillerie. While high jewelry showcases have been held around Paris throughout the week, the biggest events were scheduled for July 10th.

“Boucheron…Chaumet…Mellerio…Dior,” the list goes on to include the who’s-who of the haute jewelry and fashion world. If I have said that I died and went to Heaven earlier on in the week, then this is the place that exists beyond that.

Unlike many of their fashion counterparts, jewelers did not go along with this season’s trend of muting the pizazz of their collections. For the f/w 2014 season, bigger is most definitely better, with jewelery houses producing Haute Joaillerie collections that push the boundaries of opulent gems to a whole new level.

Here is a compilation of the season’s best gems; the crème de la crème of the jewelry world:
