Paris--Fine jewelry is at its most romantic during Haute Couture week in Paris.

Months, or even years in the making, the high jewelry shown during Haute Couture is a chance for designers to let their imaginations run wild for their price-available-upon-request clients.

Delving into the archives and heritages of iconic fine jewelry houses, jewelers transform the most simple of iconography (wheat anyone?) into one-of-a-kind masterpieces.

With Parisian presentations as opulent as the jewels themselves, Instagram provides the perfect portal for wallowing in #jewelenvy.

Boucheron’s Instagram account is chock-full of delightful images of the performance art piece the brand used to show its exquisite creations, while Dior lets followers peek into the production of its high jewelry.

Bulgari, meanwhile, treated guests to a runway show at the Italian embassy, while Chaumet dressed 4 models as “muses” of its “La Nature de Chaumet” collection.

Here are some of our favorite Insta-glimpses into the latest haute joaillerie collection presentations, no filter needed.
