Sneak Peek At Karl Lagerfeld’s Engagement Ring Collection

Do you remember when rumors regarding a possible bridal jewelry collection from Karl Lagerfeld kept us all in anticipation of discovering the exclusive designs? Well, it turned out it wasn’t just rumors, and that the acclaimed fashion designer was working on an engagement ring collection indeed. Lagerfeld partnered with jeweler Frederick Goldman to create three different styles of engagement rings for fall 2016, and thanks to Vogue it is finally possible to get a glimpse of them.

Karl Lagerfeld's Engagement Ring Collection

Karl Lagerfeld’s engagement rings collection also reveals the designer and jeweler’s target audience, which is the so-called millennial girls and boys with their unique sense of style and passion for vintage proposals. Apparently, designing an engagement ring was a bit of a challenge for Lagerfeld, who, however, managed to create something so stylish and iconic many us would surely say yes to in the blink of an eye. “I had never done a ring for that occasion. It was kind of a challenge,” he admitted.

The prolific creative mind has thus put all efforts, in conjunction with his avant-garde aesthetics, to treat us to pieces that exude a sense of architectural precision, and could at the same time embody the lovers’ devotion and feelings for each other, without looking too ostentatious or too glittery.

“The rings had to express something that concerns the heart and real feelings. It has to be a symbol and a sign of a real wish of engagement. It has to be elegant but not bling-bling;” he declared.

And the engagement rings, with the price tags ranging from $1,000 to $10,000, could be described as ‘not too lavish’ indeed, if not basically perfect for any kind of taste and (almost) any budget. The styles come in 18-karat white and yellow gold, as well as platinum, and feature different unique details inspired by the millennials’ common interests and tastes.

While the first style features Lagerfeld’s signature studs (which we often spot throughout his seasonal collections too), the second one is more modern and sharp, thanks to its geometric shapes and cuts. Lastly, the third design could be regarded as the most romantic, with its lines inspired by the curves of the Parisian architecture.

By finally unveiling his latest venture, Lagerfeld also managed to debunk the never-ending speculations regarding a possible retirement not only from Fendi, Chanel and his eponymous line, but from the fashion industry as a whole. Rejoice, he is not going anywhere (and get ready for new collaborations)!
