Royal Gold

    Old world meets new world in Pharrell Williams’ jewelry collection for Louis Vuitton. The stylish rapper and producer collaborated with Camille Miceli, Louis Vuitton’s jewelry designer, on limited-edition pieces that reference medieval symbols, but in an undeniably modern, hip context. The Blason collection, a French term that refers to a coat of arms, features stylized, diamond-studded coats-of-arms emblazoned on reversible rings, pendants, and cufflinks. Other symbolic elements include signet rings, artistic interpretations of the LV monogram, crowns, and cherubs. Created in 18-karat gold and diamonds, the collection ($2,000 to $60,000) is available exclusively at Louis Vuitton stores in New York, Beverly Hills, and Bal Harbour, Florida.
