Verdura Maltese Cross Cuffs for Chanel in 75th Anniversary

Duke Fulco di Verdura’s “Maltese Cross” Cuffs for Coco Chanel. They will be  featured in “The Power of Style: Verdura at 75” exhibition in NYC, opening October 14. The American jewelry house of Verdura will celebrate its 75th anniversary with a special exhibition of more than 150 pieces created by the legendary jeweler Duke Fulco di Verdura. “The Power of Style: Verdura at 75” will open October 14 and continue through December 23 at 745 Fifth Ave. in New York, a gallery next to the company’s 18k Gold Cheap Cartier Ring flagship store. Among the pieces on display will be two Verdura Maltese Cross cuffs created by di Verdura for Coco Chanel in 1930. Chanel is known to have worn the cuffs, one on each wrist, throughout her lifetime. They are considered icons in the world of fine jewelry. Di Verdura began his career working with Chanel in Paris. He moved to the U.S. in 1934, opening a boutique in Hollywood where he catered to celebrities and socialites. Ward Landrigan purchased the company in 1984, six years after di Verdura’s death. Today he is the company’s chairman and CEO. Verdura celebrates its 75th anniversary with the introduction of this rare, limited- edition “Theodora” cuff. The cuff will be made in a series of 200, sold in pairs or individually, engraved with a number and “Verdura New York, 1939,” and will be unveiled on October 7. Price: $97,500. “For thirty years it’s been my dream to share Verdura’s genius with a wider audience and bring him the recognition he deserves,” Landrigan said. “Collectors from around the world have readily agreed to lend their private treasures for three months and many have shared their reminiscences of time spent with Verdura.” In addition to dozens Cartier Ring Replica of di Verdura’s signature jewels, the New York exhibit will include ets d’art, archival materials, personal miniature paintings and rare period photographs.

British Rock Vault Designers at London Fashion Week–Part 2 One of the highlights of London Fashion Week (September 12-16) was the exhibit by up-and-coming jewelry designers who belong to the British Rock Vault. Curated by superstar designer Stephen Webster, and now in its fifth season, Rock Vault is an initiative by the British Fashion Council to nurture and showcase Great Britain’s developing fine jewelry talent. This season, 10 Rock Vault designers each contributed 10 pieces to London Fashion Week.

Shimell and Madden Green Prism Ring in Yellow Gold Shimell and Madden Emma Madden and Luke Shimell opened their London design studio in 2010, and their architecture-inspired jewels won Best New Design at London’s Goldsmiths’ Fair last year.

Red Carpets, Runways and Romance: 5 Jewelry Looks We

With international film festivals in Toronto and Venice, a movie premiere in London, and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in NYC, the last fortnight has been a visual feast for Replica Cartier Love Ring fashion and jewelry watchers. Here’s a roundup of five fabulous jewelry looks we love…including one special engagement ring that stole the show. Yael Sonia Rock Collection Photo Courtesy of Marissa Webb At Fashion Week, ready-to-wear designers typically soft-pedal jewelry when introducing their new collections in order to let the clothes take center stage. Marissa Webb’s outstanding Spring/Summer 2018 runway collection on September 5 was a notable exception. The 30-something designer incorporated pieces from Yael Sonia’s “Rock” jewelry collection into her show at New York’s Lincoln Center. Sonia’s cocktail rings and pendants in 18-karat gold with semi-precious gemstones and diamonds worked beautifully with Webb’s designs. Naomi Watts as Princess Diana of Wales Photo Courtesy That same night in London, Naomi Watts arrived at the world premiere of the biopic “Diana” in a white Versace gown and diamond earrings by Chopard. The 44-year-old Fake Cartier Juste Un Clou Ring actress stars as the Princess of Wales, and while the film is getting mixed reviews the clothes and jewelry do not disappoint. Lupita Nyong’o Photo Courtesy of Fashion Bomb Daily On September 6, at the Toronto Film Festival, newcomer Lupita Nyong’o also paired a white gown with diamond jewelry. Nyong’o, who plays Patsey in Brad Pitt’s “12 Years a Slave,” rocked a long-sleeved Prada design with a pleated, sequined bodice and jaw-dropping diamond ear clips. Fashion and accessories editors declared her a stand-out on the carpet. Sandra Bullock was a fan favorite on August 28, the opening night of the Venice International Film Festival. Bullock wore a red, strapless J. Mendel gown with 23-carat black spinel earrings by Beverly Hills jeweler Martin Katz. She walked the red carpet with co-star George Clooney to promote their new film “Gravity.” Sandra Bullock wearing Martin Cheap Amulette de Cartier Ring Katz Black Spinel Earrings and Bracelet at Venice International Film Festival But the real scene-stealer at the VIFF was Scarlett Johansson, leading lady of “Under the Skin.” The 28-year-old actress showed plenty of her own in a black Atelier Versace gown with a multi-colored gemstone Bulgari statement necklace. As if all this were not enough, Johansson also debuted her drop-dead-gorgeous vintage-design diamond engagement ring in Venice. Presented to her by French journalist fiancé Romain Dauriac, the ring features three large round brilliant-cut diamonds in a rectangular Art Deco setting.

Christie’s Auction Preview: Is Kardashian Diamond on the Block? Kim Kardashian Photo Courtesy of NY Daily Three Fancy Color Diamonds will highlight Christie’s upcoming Magnificent Jewels sale, which is scheduled for October 15 in New York. Experts at the venerable auction house are predicting the 400-lot sale — including several important colorless diamonds — will achieve in excess of $40 million. This week, however, Knockoff Trinity de Cartier Ring media attention was focused on a single lot, the 16-carat rectangular-cut diamond ring said to be the one NBA player Kris Humphries gave reality star Kim Kardashian for their 2011 engagement. Humphries is widely believed to be the “anonymous seller” of the ring, which was returned to him as part of the couple’s 2012 divorce settlement. Christie’s will not confirm the seller’s name; they describe the ring in the catalog as “the Property of a Gentleman.” Rare Fancy Color Diamonds An 8.77-carat rectangular-cut Fancy Intense Pink diamond ring is expected to sell for up to $6.5 million at Christie’s October auction. A 5.13-carat square-cut Fancy Vivid Yellow diamond is predicted to fetch from $200,000 to $300,000. And a 3.81-carat cushion-cut Fancy Vivid Blue diamond has a pre-sale estimate of $3.5 million. But bear in mind these are only estimates… Christie’s has high hopes for the pink diamond ring after the historic sale of the 34.65-carat Fancy Intense Pink “Princie Diamond,” which sold for $39.3 million in April. And the price of its Fancy Vivid Blue diamond will almost certainly be influenced by the sale of another Fancy Vivid Blue on October 7 at Sotheby’s in Hong Kong. At that auction the rare round 7.59-carat “Premier Blue” is expected to set a new world record — as much as $2.5 million per carat!

Gemstones and More In addition to Christie’s prestigious diamond offerings, a rare 15.88-carat Kashmir sapphire ring tops the colored gemstone lots at the Magnificent Jewels sale. It has a pre-sale high estimate of $1.5 million. Important pieces from Van Cleef & Arpels and Cartier also will be included in the sale, as well as a collection owned by The Honorable Noreen Stonor Drexel of Newport, Rhode Island — some of the finest examples of David Webb jewels from the 1960s and 1970s ever presented at auction.
