Hi all, I hope you’re well.
I really can’t quite believe how near we are to Christmas already! How did that year fly by so fast? Well, so many of you have been asking about the jewellery I’ve been wearing over the past week so I thought I’d give you a little heads up on the collection.
It’s a very exciting fashion jewellery brand called Roberto by RFM. It has been created by award-winning Italian designer Roberto Faraone Mennella. One of the designers behind couture jewellery brand Faranone Menella which is sold in prestigious boutiques in New York, London and Italy. They have a beautiful store in Mayfair and in the Jewellery room in Harrods.
The designers Roberto and Amedeo were named by TIME magazine among the “top most influential 100 Designers” in the world, and are recognized for their trendsetting designs. Their bespoke one-off pieces are a favourite with the rich and famous including Oprah Winfrey, Kim Catrall, Heidi Klum, Diane Sawyer, Jennifer Aniston and Cameran Diaz. Roberto and Amedeo also designed all the jewellery worn in the Sexy and the City series. They’re very hot property!
Following the overwhelming success of their couture range, Roberto has created a fashion range which has the same glamour, design identity and Italian artistry but at affordable prices; making it accessible to everyone. The exact same styles used in their couture range have been used for the fashion jewellery range. The collection is made from either base metal or brass with crystals, glass or resin stone, and features cabochon and cut crystals, and detailed pavé work.
Prices range from around £20 – £26 for leaf-style earrings and go up to around £175 for an elaborate gemstone necklace. All their pieces have a great weight to them and real quality feel. Pieces have a fine jewellery finish and look very high end.
The shows are on Friday 20th November at noon and 11pm. I’ll be with you for the later one and I only hope there are still some pieces left that haven’t sold out by then! Their first ever show on QVC UK was virtually a complete sell out!
I look forward to giving you a pussycat, house and Clogau jewellery design update very soon!
Love Catherine xx
