Atelier Versace ventures into couture jewellery
Atelier Versace, the haute couture label by the Italian fashion brand, is definitely spicing things up this season. On top of returning to the Ritz Paris where the late Gianni Versace would showcase his collections, Atelier Versace has also launched a high jewellery line, unveiled with the couture show on July 1st.
This inaugural collection, featuring artistic designs befitting the house’s amazing couture pieces and customers themselves, will be composed of exquisite one-of-a-kind rings mounted with a variety of precious stones such as diamonds, yellow diamonds, emeralds, sapphires and amethysts, as well as aquamarine and citrine gemstones.
Many of the styles have been intricately sculpted by hand.
“As a designer and a collector of fine jewelry I have always wanted to offer the same quality of craftsmanship in jewelry as we offer with the Atelier Versace fashion collection,” says Donatella Versace.
“Each individual ring from the collection is a work of art,” she added.
Targeted at discerning couture clients, the Atelier Versace Jewelry collection is the perfect complement to the Maison’s similarly named couture collection.
Exclusive and glamorous, the Atelier Versace fashion collection features all the intricacies that the refined craftsmanship of couture allows. The Atelier Versace Jewelry collection will be available for sale by appointment only and will not be reproduced.
