Tiffany & Co. Paloma’s Groove Collection

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: TIFFANY & CO.

As if we needed another reason to love Tiffany & Co., what with their pretty robin egg blue boxes and delightfully enchanting jewellery pieces, here comes a new collection even the menfolk can surely appreciate. Simply known as Paloma’s Groove, it is designer Paloma Picasso’s ode to the men in our lives, graphic and handsome in a way that your man can appreciate, what with its well-placed grooves and tactile quality.

Available in full selection of jewellery pieces from a cuff and cufflinks to pendants and even rings that come in 2 different widths, they come in 18K yellow and rose gold, along with sterling silver (for the more wallet-conscious, of course) and even brushed titanium for a finish that’s truly something that must have been created just for me.

Starting from SGD385 for the narrow ring in sterling silver, prices peak at SGD4900for a pair of 18K gold cufflinks, which thankfully for me, doesn’t matter because I’m almost never in a proper dress shirt.

And here they are, the titanium rings that I love love love. Now if I can only get the mister to also wear a matching one as me, I’ll be as happy as a lark.

Hermès Rose-Gold Collier de Chien In Barenia, Black Epsom & English Green Epsom

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: HERMÈS

One never needs a reason to blog about Hermès, especially here on Bagaholicboy, and tonight’s #diediemustbuy #wristparty #musthaves that will torture me to no end (until I own them, of course) is this gorgeous trio of Collier de Chien bracelets that are frankly a cut above the rest.

Besides being in the 3 colours I adore the most (there’s Barenia, there’s classic Blackand then there’s English Green, because who doesn’t love a deep dark green, right?), they all come adorned with the most fitting of cherries on the top: rose-gold plated hardware, which I think is still the best thing Hermès ever introduced since the invention of ice-cream. I know, I’m not making any sense, since no one actually needs 3 bracelets all at once (but I do), considering how we only have two wrists anyway, right?

For those of you lucky enough to chance upon any of these beauties (I did happen to see the RGHW Collier de Chien in Barenia at Liat Hermès a couple of weeks back), you should also know that they are now priced at SGD1850 a pop. And for those of you travelling anytime soon, the Collier de Chien is priced at USD1150 in the States,GBP780 in the United Kingdom and EUR975 in Europe. And if anyone is heading down under soon, it’s priced at AUD1670 in Australia.

Cartier goes bold and untouchable with new cactus-inspired jewellery range

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

Cartier cactus jewellery (2)


Cartuier cactus jewellery (1)
The desert-themed collection was launched in a unique setting. A vast open space off Avenue Franklin Roosevelt next to the River Seine in Paris displayed each piece of jewellery in mirrored viewing booths. The items were placed delicately on desert landscapes made from orange sand piles. Guests relished on these pieces by savouring on green foie-gras balls dipped in nuts and other hors d’oeuvres which the waiters circulated. Dinner by “twice Michelin-starred Lisbon chef José Avillez”, was later served.

Wear the night sky on your wrist with Bell and Ross’ latest timepiece

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

BRS-Diamond-Eagle-still-2


BRS-Diamond-Eagle-pers-portee
The watch features Bell and Ross’ aviation collection round dial within a square case. Inside the 39mm satin polished steel case is a BR-CAL.102 Quartz movement. The watch is equipped with hour and minute functions and comes with an anti-reflective sapphire crystal and a midnight blue alligator strap. On the dial are seven diamonds that represent the constellation Aquila and 12 metal dots to indicate indices. The watch comes in two variants, a regular steel one and one with 66 diamonds on the bezel.
BRS-Diamond-Eagle
We love both the concept and the execution of this celestial timepiece. The inspiration of the night sky is clear and makes for a versatile timepiece. We only have one gripe, the metal indices were totally unnecessary. Usually, we can’t stand blank faced watches with missing indices, but here the metal dots really distract from the constellation.

Chanel Les Blés de Chanel Collection

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

IMAGE: CHANEL

Gabrielle Coco Chanel was a superstitious woman, one who loved her charms and talismans which she collected and displayed in her various abodes, from her studio in 31 Rue Cambon to the apartment she kept at Ritz Hotel in Paris. During the course of her lifetime, she amassed a veritable treasure trove, amongst which included panels of antique Coromandel screens that became the backdrop of these objects that have become house icons of today, from the lion, Leo (her star sign), to the camellia that appears in various forms including bouquets of rock-crystal.

Whilst many here are familiar with them, not many will also know she loved wheat and had it in various forms throughout her apartment. Appearing on various mediums, there were wheat bouquets made of brass to carved wheat detailing on the wooden fireplace and gilded sheaves of wheat that served as table legs. She even had a painting commissioned; Dali painted her a single blade of wheat.

Why? She regarded wheat as an eternal symbol of regeneration, one of abundance, luck and prosperity. And most fittingly, Chanel High Jewellery pays tribute to one of Gabrielle Chanel’s most personal symbols this season with the Les Blés de Chanelcollection, 62 different pieces that pay homage to the humble grain in precious metals and stones like diamonds, yellow sapphires, peridots, crystallines, aquamarines and of course, pearls.

IMAGE: CHANEL

And if I had to play favourites and pick just one high jewellery piece to fawn over, it would be the this, the ‘Fête des Moissons‘ necklace (shown above), which is also the star of the collection. Employing signature techniques, the craftsmen at the atelier made this piece articulated and light in spite of the way it looks, with a 25 carat vivid yellow diamond taking centrestage on the neck piece that also includes over one thousand fancy-cut multicoloured diamonds, brilliant-cut yellow diamonds, marquise-cut diamonds and brilliant-cut diamonds.

No less breath-taking include a selection of ‘Fête des Moissons’ pieces that also has a cuff bracelet, drop earrings and a ring, their key features (like the necklace) being the ample use of richly-hued yellow diamonds that are akin to the most intense of sunsets over a ripe wheat field.

Other mini-collections in the Les Blés line-up include ‘Moisson d’Or‘ and ‘Moisson de Perles‘, which of course feature Chanel’s signature precious cultured pearls to great effect on pieces set on white gold alongside brilliant diamonds. Making its way around the world to various countries after Paris, we will get to witness the collection in its full, rich, abundant glory come January 2017 when they get exhibited in Singapore, so please watch this space for more updates.

Tiffany & Co. ropes in Reed Krakoff for its new accessories and homeware collection

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

Tiffany-Co-Reed-Karakoff-collaboration


The new collection at Tiffany’s will retain its original touch with Krakoff adding his creative twist to it. So purchasing out of the new collection will come with the added creative touches of Krakoff without compromising on the feel of being a Tiffany product. Though jewelry and watches will not be a part of his kitty, Krakoff will add his creative inputs to the remaining range of products including handbags, sunglasses, tabletops, and apparel and writing accessories and design director Francesca Amfitheatrof will simultaneously continue to work on the jewelry and watch line. Both Krakoff and Amfitheatrof will report to Tiffany CEO, Frederic Cumenal.

This is not the first time the brand has included an outside creative partner on its collection. Early this year, Tiffany also welcomed former creative director at Vogue, Grace Coddington on board. The collection which is a semi deviation from its line of established products is set to launch in 2017. Will the partnership between the two continue post the launch, is for time to tell. For now this sensational amalgamation of design minds looks intriguing and something to watch out for!
