Atelier Swarovski with Prince Dimitri for a collection of blue blood and synthetic diamonds ♦
Atelier Swarovski, the high jewelery brand of the Austrian company, announced the collaboration with Prince Dimitri at the Couture Show. Prince Dimitri founded his jewelry company in 2007 after 16 years as senior vice president of the jewelry department of Sotheby’s and later as head of the same area for the Phillips de Pury and Luxembourg auction houses. On his side the prince designer boasts an illustrious family tree: descends from Catherine the Great, Louis XIV, Charlemagne, the Medici, the Greek, Danish, Italian, Belgian and Yugoslav royal families. In short, nobody is missing.
The collaboration between Atelier Swarovski and Prince Dimitri is centered on romantic pieces, inspired by Prince Dimitri’s European royal heritage. But in step with the times: jewels, in fact, use synthetic diamonds, called Swarovski diamonds, and recycled or ethically proven gold. The watchword is Conscious Luxury, a jewelery that respects the environment and social issues.
The collaboration resulted in the Prince Dimitri Fine Jewelry Collection, which has two lines: The Knot of True Love Collection and The Dancing Halo Commitment Collection. The first includes rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets characterized by a knot design inspired by the historic Savoy knot, the insignia of the Savoy royal house from 1434 and part of the patrimony of Prince Dimitri. The intertwined knot is traditionally accompanied by the motto “binds but does not bind”. Dancing Halo includes a ring, earrings and pendant with graceful rotating diamond-shaped ringlets. The infinite circles are a celebration of eternal love. The pieces are made of white gold adorned with diamonds created by Swarovski.
“It was a pleasure to work with Atelier Swarovski in this collection that celebrates love through sustainable design. Sustainability is about love of nature and being good with it. My favorite quality in people is kindness, and this collection symbolizes the beauty of love and kindness “.
