Here’s your first look at Rihanna’s jewelry collection for Chopard

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

Rihanna is on top of her game these days. Not only is she smashing records with her album Anti, but also shaking up the fashion world with collaborations with Puma and Manolo Blahnik under the belt. She’s now adding another luxury brand to her long list of collaborators: Chopard. The result of these two powerhouses coming together is an haute joaillerie collection like no other. Drawing inspiration from Rihanna’s birthplace of Barbados, the collection the lush gardens of the island as well as the thrill of Carnival.

The 9 piece capsule collection will feature items like a set of showstopping white gold earrings that dazzle with diamonds in a variety of cuts including marquis, pear and brilliant cuts. A more colorful and asymmetric pair of chandelier style earrings glitter with the colors of blue, pink and yellow sapphires, tsavorites, rubellites, green beryls, aquamarines, Paraiba tourmalines, rubies, amethysts, topazs, lazulites and diamonds. The necklaces revealed in the early promotional images stand out for their clean, geometric lines which echo the modernity of Rihanna herself.

“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,” said Rihanna. “It was a really incredible process and I learned so much! I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”

Balenciaga Leather Bracelet Update 2016

Categories:Jewelry & Watches


Affectionately known as the ‘poor man’s bracelet’, and only because the ones from Hermès are many times more expensive, Balenciaga leather bracelets are also everyone’s starter bracelet (it was mine back when I was a wee lad), something affordable that came in many colours, finishes and lengths. Over the years, of course, some styles were dropped, new ones were added on, and walking into a Balenciaga boutique recently, I realised I recognised very few.

In other words, it was time for an update.

Quickly scanning through Balenciaga online, this is what I got. There are at least 6 different types available now, and they vary from single cuff style bracelets to those you can wrap around the wrist several times (also known as the Triple Tour). Besides contending with the ones in seasonal colours, they also come with hardware in different colours. There’s Classic Gold, Classic Silver and just the Classic (which I’m assuming is the hardware that comes looking blackened and burnished for the aged look).

Then there are those that are differentiated by the size of their studs, namely theGiant Gold series. Besides the fact that the studs are also bigger, they also come detailed with a grid-pattern on them, like an etching if you will.

Rounding up today’s selection are the newish ones known as the Classic Metallic Edge, which look as if they are ‘outlined’ on the leather bracelet (see 4th and 5th rows). Available in single or triple tour combinations, these are also the most ‘showy’ of the lot, good for those who want their #wristbling to go a longer way.

Best thing, they are all available online via Balenciaga, which now ships to Singapore. Prices are in USD, shipping costs will be extra, so gather a few girlfriends, pick a few and share on the charges. #happyshopping

Would You Wear... a Hand Chain?

Hand chain bracelets are quickly becoming a hot commodity in the world of fashion. These bracelets wrap around a finger (or two!) and sit delicately on the hand, rather than just on your wrist like a normal bracelet. 

While they may not alway be practical (think: getting caught on things, handwashing), they certainly are pretty. For a special occasion out, we could totally see ourselves rocking one.

Chanel Première Bands

Anytime you can stack jewels, I’m in! That’s why these new Chanel rings are going to catch on quickly. There are options to fit every taste – precious pink, white, or yellow gold all with or without diamonds. Instead of plain jane strips of metal, Chanel takes its sophisticated touch and breaks the mold to create playful, distinctly feminine pieces. These would be perfect for celebrating special anniversaries – start with a simple band one year and make your way up to diamonds as the anniversaries go on. Sentimental and chic – what could be better?
