Charriol celebrates ‘crazy love’ with new line

Swiss watchmaker and jeweler Charriol has launched a new feminine collection — “Crazy in Love Again” — for 2019.

It features a line of jewels that pays tribute to the “passionate, daring and plural femininity,” which is at the heart of the jewelry creations of the brand since 1983. 

Dedicated to “The Art of living the difference,” the collection consists of rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings, combining white topaz, rhodium silver 925 and steel cables. 

It is for the “eternal and contemporary lovers” to express to their partner how much they are “Crazy in Love Again” on this Feb. 14. The theme of love is expressed through the ballet of the heart and the arrow, in a jewelry line that plays with symmetry and asymmetry.

“The bangles, made of twisted steel cable, emblematic of the brand Charriol, come here to offer their strands of masculinity to ultra-feminine jewelry that wrap around wrists and punctuate them with hearts and arrows set with white topaz,” Charriol said. 

The collection consists of two models of finger rings made in twisted steel and white topaz.

“In the Crazy in Love Again collection, the earrings unveil a new spirit of modernity with elegance and glamor. Models play asymmetry. Each loop is unique. A mesh pendant echoes a nail or embellishes a pair of heart and arrow that frame the face,” the brand said.

The necklaces of the line feature fluid silver chains with asymmetrical and elaborate meshes, extended with crimped pendants and lariats without a clasp or a fastener, whose chains decorated with charms pass through a ring to seal the necklace.
