The elegant and powerful Hedi Slimane is launching a new line of stunning diamond jewelry for the Parisian luxury house Saint Laurent, aptly titled ‘Saint Laurent Diamond,’ Hedi Slimane’s latest jewelry collection features stunning designs in gold, set with brilliant-cut diamond paving.
The jewelry line is hand crafted and primarily consists of bracelets and rings for both men and women. This follows “the tradition and savoir-faire spirit of Parisian joaillerie,” says the brand spokesperson. Customers choose between 18K gold or 18K white gold set with diamonds, and this birthing collection will be “permanent and evolving.” This indicates Saint Laurent’s diamond collection soon will be ruling heirloom estate bequests among the wealthy of Europe and the United States.
As always with Hedi Slimane, the collection will be androgynous, as is the Vermeil silver coated gold collection of Saint Laurent launched last year. . The Saint Laurent Diamond collection launching will feature jewels worn by former Girls singer, Christopher Owens, emphasizing the androgynous appeal of the fine jewelry.
The launching of the Saint Laurent collection line of diamonds falls nicely into the current demand in China for high quality diamond jewelry. Even engaged couples are side stepping tradition of China and instead of betrothal gifts of gold bracelets, today’s Chinese bridal couple are shopping for large high quality diamond rings like their Western counterparts.
Of course, this surge of Chinese buyers of quality diamond jewelry, most especially engagement and wedding rings, has affected the mining and gemology markets in both hemispheres. Saint Laurent has never had its finger off the pulse of society’s elite, no matter the continent. The current launch of their diamond collection will undoubtedly have a ready market avidly ready to purchase, on both sides of the world. In Western culture, the upcoming holiday gift giving tradition will make the timing of Saint Laurent and Hedi Slimane all the more prescient in terms of availability and demand.
