WHEN: Thursday, April 5 – 2 to 8
WHERE: Saks Fifth Avenue, Richmond
DETAILS: Saks Fifth Avenue will host an exclusive sales event with Roberto Coin and his latest fine jewelry collections. Customers will be able to preview the Roberto Coin collections as well as meet Mr. Coin himself, an Italian luxury jewelry designer, synonymous with innovative and timeless jewelry for more than 30 years.
Coin was the first designer ever to make use of three-color gold, which became fashionable in every corner of the globe. Today, over half the items made by Roberto Coin include diamonds and both precious and semi-precious stones. Inspired by an ancient Egyptian legend, each original piece is marked with a hidden signature ruby, which signifies a blessing for long life, health and happiness.
Saks Fifth Avenue will be debuting Roberto Coin’s latest creations, including the ultra chic and modern Bollicine Collection. Meaning “little bubbles” in Italian, Bollicine is recognized by its unique use of free-form enamel and yellow and white gold to create a lightweight yet strikingly alluring collection. Also featured will be extensions of the luxurious Fantasia Collection, which combines black, white and champagne diamonds to create a scintillating line. This season, Mr. Coin has incorporated black diamonds to amplify the brilliance of these beautiful pieces. The event will also highlight one of the designer’s most playful collections, Animalier. Mr. Coin’s innovative designs have transformed scorpions and octopuses into creatures of whimsical beauty and glamour to be worn as cuffs, rings or earrings.
As a fashion-forward iconic designer, Roberto Coin continues to make his innovative visions a reality by creating a focused collection of unique pieces. Mr. Coin will debut his new Haute Couture Collection which adds a pop of color to every wardrobe. These stunning pieces, designed in 18K Yellow or White Gold with Diamonds, Sapphires, and Semiprecious stones are a true testament to the designer’s unforgettable style.
