The GEM Award for High Jewelry Excellence is awarded to a brand for excellence in high jewelry design. The award is given to a company for a collection or series of collections that increase consumer demand for high jewelry.
Founded in Florence in 1921, Gucci is one of the world’s leading luxury fashion brands, with a renowned reputation for creativity, innovation, and Italian craftsmanship. Gucci is part of the global luxury group Kering, which manages the development of a series of esteemed Maisons in fashion, leather goods, jewelry, and watches.

Gucci presented its first High Jewelry collection in Paris in 2019. Since then, the House unveils a new chapter every year at a special event in June, with the latest launch taking place in Rome in 2022. The collection is available at Gucci’s first dedicated High Jewelry boutique in Place Vendôme, Paris.

Hortus Deliciarum – meaning ‘Garden of Delights’ in Latin – celebrates the wonders of the natural world, interpreted through Gucci’s poetic narrative. The collection also takes inspiration from various historical eras, landscapes, and architectural styles, evoking a kaleidoscopic universe where the past and present collide.

Diamonds, pearls, precious gemstones, and nature-inspired symbols light up these extraordinary jewelry pieces, which blend Italian craftsmanship with Gucci’s unique heritage and iconography. Each one showcases the know-how, quality, and attention to detail that characterize the Florentine House.
