Hermès Filet de Selle collection reinterprets the house's jewelry beginnings with modern embellishments.

Long necklace in white gold and diamonds ($238,900).

The first piece of jewelry Hermès introduced was the Filet de Selle bracelet—a 1927 tribute to the house’s equestrian roots. Now the Filet d’Or line carries on that tradition, utilizing rose gold and white gold as well as diamonds to add embellishment and luster to the collection’s necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings. The adornments incorporate designs seen throughout earlier baubles, including an Attelage-buckle clasp; a reinterpreted Milanese mesh inspired by chain mail of the Middle Ages; and the brand’s bijouterie’s signature diamond approach, using tiny diamonds to enhance the already poignant piece, like the Filet d’Or rope necklace, which features more than 2,400 stones.
