Chopard and Rihanna Team Up For  ‘Rihanna Loves Chopard’ Jewelry Collection

Chopard and Rihanna Team Up For ‘Rihanna Loves Chopard’ Jewelry Collection

  A new co-designed jewelry line is coming our way this summer by Chopard and famed singer Rihanna.  The luxury watch and jewelry company Chopard is no stranger to dressing celebrities and does so on red carpets around the globe. This new relationship with Rihanna, though, is designed to offer a more modern high-jewelry collection that reflects the spirited style of the international singer and style icon. Called Rihanna Loves Chopard, the jewelry pieces are knockouts. Originally from Barbados, Rihanna worked side by side with  Co-President of Chopard, Caroline Scheufele, to create the collection, which embraces vibrant colors reminiscent of the island, as well as florals. Additionally, Rihanna worked with the brand’s existing Ice Cube collection — working a new play on geometrics. The capsule collection brings a modern edgy feel to the forefront with ceramic and also stirs at the heartstrings of ethics thanks to the fact that the pieces are made using Fairmined gold.  “I have always been in love with Chopard’s exquisite jewelry, so to actually design collections with them is something I still can’t believe,” says Rihanna. “It was a really incredible process and I learned so much! I can’t wait for everyone to see it.” The collection makes its official debut in May (in time to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festiva, which Chopard has officially partnered with for 20 years). However, those interested in pre-ordering pieces can do so in Chopard boutiques or on-line at a special Chopard dedicated Rihanna loves Chopard site: www.chopard.com/us/rihanna-loves-chopard.  ...

Why You Need the Audemars Pigeut 40th Anniversary Frosted Gold Royal Oak Watches for Women

Why You Need the Audemars Pigeut 40th Anniversary Frosted Gold Royal Oak Watches for Women

At the recent Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), luxury watch brand Audemars Piguet unveiled a stunning new collection of Frosted gold watches. The  Audemars Piguet 40th Anniversary Frosted Gold Royal Oak watches utilize a unique “hammered” gold technique that celebrates the shimmer of gold, the art of craftsmanship and the first ever ladies’ Royal Oak, which was originally unveiled in 1976. The first Royal Oak for women was designed by Jacqueline Dimier, top designer for the brand forty years ago. This year, the new  40th Anniversary collection of Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Frosted Gold watches have been developed in tandem with Florence, Italy, jewelry designer Carolina Bucci, who created the new finish for the stunning women’s watches. In fact, the  technique of  Florentine (hammered) Gold was perfected more a century and a half ago, and since then many top jewelry houses out of Florence have further developed their own looks. Carolina Bucci has developed a special technique for hammering gold wherein she makes every tiny indentation by hand, working with a diamond-tipped tool to create the “frosted” effect. The anniversary collection includes rose gold and white gold versions. While the smaller, 33mm-sized watches are powered by quartz movements, the larger siblings house mechanical calibers. Why you need it So, in the end, this is a stunning look that sets the Audemars Piguet 40th Anniversary Royal Oak Frosted Gold watches apart from anything else the brand has made in decades. The look is guaranteed to hold up through fast-moving trends and remain a classic … holding its value, as...
