CHINA GIRL: Monique Lhuillier will introduce a crystal and tableware collection in partnership with Waterford at the New York Tabletop show on Tuesday. The Monique Lhuillier Waterford collection includes fine china, crystal stemware, barware, silver and metal giftware. The partnership replaces an existing line of Monique Lhuillier tabletop designs with Royal Doulton, which will be phased out of retail in the first quarter of 2012. Both Waterford and Royal Doulton are owned by Waterford Wedgwood Royal Doulton and the change elevates the Monique Lhuillier product to a higher price point. The new Waterford collection, which will be in stores in January, will retail from $18 to $1,500.
