New York--Atelier Swarovski has partnered with designer Matthew Campbell Laurenza for its first fine jewelry collection, which is being sold exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman.
Atelier Swarovski by Matthew Campbell Laurenza launched with the Jeweled Garden collection, 15 one-of-a-kind pieces in 18-karat gold with precious and semi-precious Swarovksi gemstones including multi-colored sapphires, amethyst, rhodolite garnets, spinel and topaz.
Eight rings, four bracelets and three necklaces comprise the collection, which ranges in price from $9,000 to $118,000.
Atelier Swarovski was created by Swarovski in 2007 as the crystal company’s luxury fashion line.
The brand taps designers in fashion, jewelry and architecture to create products with its crystals, with past collaborations including Karl Lagerfeld, Alexander McQueen and jewelry designer Irene Neuwirth.
“Matthew is a true artist who really understands the infinite versatility of Swarovski gemstones, and his beautiful sculptural pieces perfectly embody Atelier Swarovski’s luxury design aesthetic while pushing the boundaries of creativity with our gorgeous gemstones,” said Swarovski Executive Board member Nadja Swarovski.
Swarovski representatives said although the line currently is exclusive to Bergdorf Goodman, the company is open to exploring other opportunities in the future.
