See Monique Lhuillier’s Colorful New Engagement Rings
The bridal gown designer has expanded her exclusive Kay Jewelers collection, adding colored gemstones and black diamonds to the mix.
Lhuillier is expanding her “Bliss” line once again, adding new engagement ring designs set with colored gemstones and black diamonds.
The collection was introduced in fall 2021, debuting an expansive selection of more than 60 engagement and wedding bands. Last year, she introduced a men’s wedding band collection.
This second extension takes its inspiration from nature as well as her bridal collections and evening gowns, borrowing soft shades of lavender, powder blue, and yellow.
“It has been a dream working alongside Kay to bring my new gemstone and black diamond collection to life,” said Lhuillier.
“This celebration of color is for those who desire a unique and luxurious sense of style. Inspired by the delicate and colorful florals found in my bridal gowns, each gemstone was carefully selected to bring my vision to life.”
Lhuillier is best known for her bridal line, and has amassed a celebrity following that includes Reese Witherspoon, Taylor Swift, Heidi Klum, and former First Lady Michelle Obama.
Established in 1996, she has grown her company into a luxury lifestyle brand, branching out from wedding gowns and formal dresses into lingerie, wedding invitations, home, and fragrance.
The new engagement ring collection features 14-karat white gold rings set with aquamarine, yellow quartz, light purple amethyst, peridot and black diamond.
Select styles are available in yellow gold.
"Expanding the collection is part of our mission to continue bringing top designers and brands to our customers in a way no other jewelry stores can,” said Bill Brace, president of Kay Jewelers.
“The expansion of Monique Lhuillier Bliss allows us to further evolve the collection and offer our consumers on trend and in demand options that feature Monique’s elevated brand aesthetic.”
The Monique Lhuillier Bliss Gemstone and Black Diamond collection debuted online and in select Kay stores last week.
Prices range from $999 to $5,999.
