Haute for the Holidays: Karl Lagerfeld Engagement Rings
Having finally arrived in a select group of prestigious jewelry stores nationwide last month, Karl Lagerfeld’s much-anticipated engagement ring collection offers couples hoping to get engaged during high engagement season (now – February 14, 2017) an exciting new option. The result of a licensing agreement with the Frederick Goldman Luxury Group, one of the largest fine jewelry companies in North America, the collaboration fuses cutting edge details with a distinctive air of Parisian glamour and sophistication.
Several of Karl Lagerfeld’s signatures are cleverly worked into the engagement ring settings (think pyramid studs and pointy collars) and beautifully expressed in diamonds and polished metal. Sharp, knife-edged silhouettes mingle with geometric motifs, many of which subtly reference the city of lights iconic examples of gothic architecture.
The centerpiece of the collection is a limited-edition design taken from a hand-drawn sketch by Lagerfeld himself. Called Les Coeurs Entrelacés, the ring artfully melds the old (the marquise diamond center stone, a cut popular in the 1920’s) with the new (a sculptural, ultra-modern setting formed by interlocked hearts). Only three have been produced, perfect for the millennial bride who wants to honor tradition but also make a high-fashion statement.
