Not diamonds or gold this watch costs $95,000 because its the blackest in the world

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

MCT S-110 Evo venta
The promo of the watch is building the suspense, and any person with a love for dials and tick-tocks would love this black beauty. It comes with four dials with five prisms that flip digits, like an advertising banner. It comes studded with 471 components, 81 rubies and a 40-hour power reserve. The Vantablack is used on the dial and some other parts on the watch too.

However, the star is not the dial but the use of Vantablack – so rich that if you stare at it too long you might feel like you are being pulled into a void, a black hole of sorts. This “blackest shade of black” has been manufactured by Surrey Nanosystems, which initially developed this colour for the aerospace in collaboration with British National Physics Laboratory. The “tint” is made up of a “complex of carbon nanotubes which when assembled together can absorb over 99.965 percent of light.” The depth of the colour has been explained using multiple analogies, but I suppose we have to see it to believe it. Supporting the watch case made of titanium with black DLC coating, is a black alligator strap with a sapphire crystal case back and face.

The watch is a super limited edition and only 10 pieces will be made. This should explain the price tag.

Sneak Peek At Karl Lagerfeld’s Engagement Ring Collection

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

Do you remember when rumors regarding a possible bridal jewelry collection from Karl Lagerfeld kept us all in anticipation of discovering the exclusive designs? Well, it turned out it wasn’t just rumors, and that the acclaimed fashion designer was working on an engagement ring collection indeed. Lagerfeld partnered with jeweler Frederick Goldman to create three different styles of engagement rings for fall 2016, and thanks to Vogue it is finally possible to get a glimpse of them.

Karl Lagerfeld's Engagement Ring Collection

Karl Lagerfeld’s engagement rings collection also reveals the designer and jeweler’s target audience, which is the so-called millennial girls and boys with their unique sense of style and passion for vintage proposals. Apparently, designing an engagement ring was a bit of a challenge for Lagerfeld, who, however, managed to create something so stylish and iconic many us would surely say yes to in the blink of an eye. “I had never done a ring for that occasion. It was kind of a challenge,” he admitted.

The prolific creative mind has thus put all efforts, in conjunction with his avant-garde aesthetics, to treat us to pieces that exude a sense of architectural precision, and could at the same time embody the lovers’ devotion and feelings for each other, without looking too ostentatious or too glittery.

“The rings had to express something that concerns the heart and real feelings. It has to be a symbol and a sign of a real wish of engagement. It has to be elegant but not bling-bling;” he declared.

And the engagement rings, with the price tags ranging from $1,000 to $10,000, could be described as ‘not too lavish’ indeed, if not basically perfect for any kind of taste and (almost) any budget. The styles come in 18-karat white and yellow gold, as well as platinum, and feature different unique details inspired by the millennials’ common interests and tastes.

While the first style features Lagerfeld’s signature studs (which we often spot throughout his seasonal collections too), the second one is more modern and sharp, thanks to its geometric shapes and cuts. Lastly, the third design could be regarded as the most romantic, with its lines inspired by the curves of the Parisian architecture.

By finally unveiling his latest venture, Lagerfeld also managed to debunk the never-ending speculations regarding a possible retirement not only from Fendi, Chanel and his eponymous line, but from the fashion industry as a whole. Rejoice, he is not going anywhere (and get ready for new collaborations)!

The watch features a steel case with a titanium crown which is and set with glittering black diamonds. “We paid particular attention to the details of this UR-106 version,” said the creators of the watch, Felix Baumgartner and Martin Frei. “The carousel and satellites have been worked on by hand to create a special satin finish, while our workshops have carefully painted each hour numeral and cut-out minutes scale. The moon shines in a sky of lapis-lazuli blue selected from hundreds of different shades, while the outline of the lotus on the back is exactly as Martin drew it. We wanted a sleek, handsome watch for our UR-106 series, and for us this is a mission success.”

The watch is available in 3 colorways: Black Lotus (black PVD coated case with neon yellow details and a black alligator strap), Lotus (a steel case with white alligator strap) and Black Pink (black PVD coated case with pink details and a black alligator strap).

CHANEL CHEVRON FLAP BAG WITH LARGE CC LEATHER STRAP

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

Chanel-Chevron-Flap-Bag-with-Large-CC-Leather -trap

Ladies, the Chanel Chevron Bag is getting a huge twist here and it’s a design you’ve never seen before. Made to be loved.

Now where should we start? Let’s talk about the front first, shall we?

The beautiful front is just like the back of the famous Chanel Classic Flap Bag. Now why is that?

Because it features the exact same pocket like the one on the back of the Classic Flap Bag.

Well, it’s a front pocket and we love that, because you know, we can store our instant-essentials in there like our coins, cards or receipts.

The front is partly covered in Chevron Quilted print, but what’s really popping out is the large leather strap with CC logo stitched on it. And the edges are also refined with hardware (check out the red bag).

This bag comes with a luxurious interwoven chain link, so you can wear it on your shoulder, cross body or even by hand.

Overall, what we love is the new exciting design – it’s like an urban-chic everyday bag, don’t you think?

Categories:Jewelry & Watches

Fendi-watch-collection-1-1170x553


The Fendi Policromia Collection features twenty models of watches, each featuring different aspects of haute joaillerie. Brilliant cut white diamonds form the indices and stud the bezels providing a strong contrast to the malachite and green mother of pearl, or lapis lazuli and blue mother-of-pearl inserts on the dials. White and yellow gold give the watches a classic look while black rhodium-plated yellow gold adds an edge of modernity.

Swiss watchmaking expertise and attention to detail are evident in the exquisitely created timepieces that feature alligator straps with gold buckles. The watches beautifully marry the aesthetic of the notable jewelry designer Delfina Delettrez Fendi with the quirky classic style of Fendi.
