Marchesa is entering the world of fine jewelry. Designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig have inked a licensing deal with Prestige Jewelry to produce their foray into jewelry.
The debut collection, due out for holiday, will focus entirely on bridal and complement the brand’s bridal collection. “Our bridal business is growing rapidly over the past few years, so it seems like a natural fit to offer jewelry in the market,” explained chief executive officer Edward Chapman. The bridal line will consist of 20 different styles, primarily consisting of engagement rings and wedding bands. Stud earrings, pendants and solitaire stones will also be included, with prices ranging from $2,000 to more than $20,000. “The bridal business is really a very steady business,” said Rajiv Kothari, ceo of Prestige Jewelry. “It’s the right place to launch and really get our feet into the market and establish ourselves in that space.”
