The Dior label is the namesake of designer Christian Dior who launched the haute couture empire in 1946. Christian Dior Couture, a division of the whole House of Dior, designs and produces some of the world’s most coveted haute couture, as well as luxury ready-to-wear fashion, menswear and accessories. Less known, but equally superior is their jewelry line.
Christian Dior became world-famous with his New Look in 1947 and from then on he became the king of style. As part of his collections Dior also designed costume jewellery . It did not take long before designs of the House of Dior were produced under license by outstanding companies, like Henkel & Grosse in Germany, Kramer in the United States, Gripoix in France. Dior’s vintage costume jewellery is highly collectible.
