For all of nature’s subtleties, much of it is wildly maximalist as well. Towering waterfalls, grand sunsets, and majestic beasts – these are some of the awe-inspiring symbols that Alessandro Michele taps on for Gucci’s new high jewelry collection, Hortus Deliciarum (Latin for Garden of Delights.)




The collection contains 130 pieces of jewelry, divided into four chapters that each represent a different element of nature. In the animal kingdom section, roaring lion heads clasp verdant tsavorites, while a chapter inspired by natural landscapes recalls the drama of the Roaring Twenties with its fringed necklaces and chandelier earrings.
