With the Cannes Film Festival in full swing, Rihanna came to town to celebrate her recent collaboration with Swiss jewelry designer, Chopard.
It’s not hard to realize that everything Rihanna touches turns to double platinum. Any brand the “Diamonds” singer attaches her name to is instantly a cash cow. When you look at her majorly successful collaboration with Puma, we see every launch selling out in a matter of hours, or sometimes even minutes. Rihanna’s latest collab is her most high end to date. Swiss jewelry company, Chopard, has ranked highly amongst the jewelry world almost since it was started back in 1860. Many of their pricey baubles could easily exceed six figures.
The dinner for the historic event was in Cannes, France which coincided with the annual Cannes Film Festival. Rihanna, ever the fashionista, was reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour with her black Ralph & Russo gown and coordinating tulle wrap. The basic color black was the perfect excuse for the star to drip herself in Rihanna x Chopard diamonds.
The pieces, in question, blend perfectly with the rest of the Chopard collection. A series of necklaces, rings, and bracelets, her primary collection, which range from $1,300 to $10,000, are featured in 18k rose gold with some having green accents which was directly chosen by Rihanna. Her higher end pieces are exquisite and worthy of being displayed in a museum.
The limited edition earrings, which you can get covered in a sapphires, tsavorites, and rubellites or in white diamonds set in a white gold setting, are definitely a showstopper which would probably leave you uncomfortable to wear them without a bodyguard. The collection overall is as impressive as the singers decade long career. Despite her sometimes provocative behavior, there’s no diminishing the fact that she has proven herself time and time again as the consummate business woman.
