World renowned bridal and fashion designer Monique Lhuillier has recently announced that she has created a new jewelry line. The designer had previously designed engagement and wedding rings, and has now added earrings, pendants, and bracelets to her line of gorgeous jewelry and stunning clothing line. One of the leading fashion houses in the United States, Monique Lhuillier’s is based in Los Angeles.
Born in the Philippines, Monique later moved to Los Angeles to study fashion and pursue her dream of becoming a designer. She launched her first collection of bridal gowns in 1996 and has become a favorite among celebrities for both wedding and red carpet gowns. Not only has Monique designed ready-to-wear, red carpet, and bridal gowns, she also has designed tableware, linens, and home fragrances. Monique Lhuillier creations sell at specialty stores and luxury department stores throughout the world.
Monique has previously designed layered beaded necklaces, large statement necklaces, and intricately designed gold chains. Stylish gold collars and cuffs were also revealed in earlier selections when she collaborated with Pamela Love. She is expanding her line of signature engagement and wedding bands to include a variety of jewelry so a bride can create her bridal dream-look with pendants, earrings, and necklaces as well. Some of the designs include earrings with blue diamond centerpieces and clusters of tiny diamonds around the edges to create what resembles a pair of elegant flowers. Also in the collection are teardrop style pearl earrings and delicate diamond studded bracelets. Every piece is created with 18k white gold. Prices start at approximately $900, with some pieces selling at $20,000.
Engagement and Wedding Rings
Words such as romantic and sparkling describe this gorgeous line of jewelry. They fit perfectly with her designer gowns and dresses. The engagement rings are simply breathtaking. While most designers offer rings that have a plain band, nearly all of Monique’s rings feature gem studded bands with tiny, sparkling stones that perfectly compliment the centerpiece of the ring. Her engagement rings come in four distinct categories. Tradition, Modern, Romance, and Antiquity each features distinctively designed engagement rings to fit each bride’s personality and style. Monique’s new line includes 7 new engagement rings, for a total of 25 stunning rings to choose from. Prices for the settings are between $1,000 and $5,400. Both engagement and wedding rings are made from premium platinum.
You can’t mention Monique’s jewelry without appreciating how fabulous her clothing designs are as well. Her designs bring to mind words such as feminine and elegant, with many featuring endless rows of lace and sheer material. Celebrities such as Carrie Underwood, Britney Spears, and Ashlee Simpson have donned Monique Lhuillier wedding gowns. While many of her beautiful evening gowns range from $3,000 to $8,000 dollars, there are several that sell for under $1,000. It’s easy to see why Monique’s designs are a favorite among celebrities, high-end fashionistas, as well as the rest of us who simply love to look good.
