Versace to Launch  Jewelry Line
Fri 29-06-2012

Versace will launch a new Atelier Jewelry collection on the first day of Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, with the label's creative director Donatella Versace citing each piece a "work of art."

The unveiling will take place July 1, when the Italian house makes its return to the couture catwalk with a runway presentation at the Ritz Paris.

The line, which comprises 16 designs of hand-sculpted rings mounted with precious stones such as diamonds, emeralds, sapphires and amethysts, will be custom-made and available for purchase by appointment only.

"As a designer and a collector of fine jewelry, I have always wanted to offer the same quality of craftsmanship in jewelry as we offer with the Atelier Versace fashion collection," explained Donatella in a release. "Each individual ring from the collection is a work of art."
