Designer Monique Lhuillier Brings New Collection to Kay

The exclusive Monique Lhuillier Bliss collection features engagement rings distinguishable by the designer’s signature accents.

Bridal designer Monique Lhuillier collaborated with Kay Jewelers on an exclusive bridal jewelry line.
Akron, Ohio—Kay Jewelers is partnering with bridal and fashion designer Monique Lhuillier on a new line of engagement rings and wedding bands.

The exclusive Monique Lhuillier Bliss collection reflects the designer’s “innate sense of style and refined, sophisticated aesthetic,” said Kay Jewelers in a press release about the launch.

Fans of the designer include Reese Witherspoon, Taylor Swift, Heidi Klum, and the First Lady Michelle Obama.

Established in 1996, Lhuillier has grown her company into a luxury lifestyle brand, branching out from wedding gowns and formal dresses into lingerie, wedding invitations, home, fragrance, and more.

She distributes her line via her own stores as well as through department and specialty stores.

Lhuillier is best known for her bridal gowns, which feature floral accents and strong silhouettes that are reflected in the new line she’s created in collaboration with Kay.

The collection gives consumers a lot to choose from. Bliss features more than 60 engagement and wedding bands, with between 22 to 34 of those styles available in store.

The styles featured in the slideshow below are available both in stores and online.

“We are continuously working on new product development and new styles to add to the collection. The plan is to introduce new styles to the Monique Lhuillier Bliss collection throughout the year,” Kay Jewelers said.

Every style features a band of diamonds around the lower part of the ring’s shank, a symbol of unity and eternal love, said the company.

The rings also have Lhuillier’s “XO” signature, her own love note to the couple, as well as a brand logo on the inside of the band.

“Monique’s inspiring aesthetic combined with our expert craftsmanship allowed us to create a jewelry line couples will yearn over, especially for those who appreciate the art of fashion,” said Jamie Singleton, president of Kay Jewelers, in a press release.

This is not the first time a Signet-owned store has partnered with a popular fashion designer on a bridal collection.

“Love by Vera Wang” has been a consistently strong performer for Zales for years and Kay previously partnered with gown designer Adrianna Papell on a bridal collection.

Jared the Galleria of Jewelry, another Signet-owned brand, teamed up with bridal gown designer Pnina Tornai on an engagement ring collection last November.

The Monique Lhuillier Bliss collection of engagement rings are set in 18-karat white, rose, or yellow gold with a few options for a center stone, including round, princess-cut, oval, pear, emerald and marquise.

The diamonds are of near colorless, SI2 clarity.

The collection is perfect for those looking to propose or drop a helpful hint to a significant other, said Lhuillier, highlighting its blend of romance and whimsy.

“It is a dream come true to work alongside Kay Jewelers to launch an exclusive collection that not only incorporates my designs into a jewelry line, but also offers more ways to express love and be  part of life’s most special moments,” said Lhuillier.

“The ring collection is romantic and ethereal with my special touches and signature accents.”

Total carat weights range from 5/8 total carat weight to 2-1/8 total carat weight, with prices ranging from $999 to $18,999.

The collection is available at select Kay locations and on its website.
