At the turn of the century, Jeanne Lanvin was one of the most sought after couturiers in Paris by nobility and high society. She adored elaborate and precious materials which inspired her to create extraordinary pieces of embroideries of opulent pearls, beads, crystals and precious materials.
Fast forward half a century later, LANVIN today continues to create the most exquisite and luxurious accessories, as presented in a collection of stylish pearl and crystal necklaces made out of delicate jewels of lustrous glass and Swarovski crystals. Moreover, the chic and sultry strands of pearls are tied together with satin silk or gross grain ribbons. The necklaces are strikingly modern yet they are infused with a touch of vintage as pieces of crystals and beads of pearls are enveloped in silk chiffon, tulle and polished metal.
Under the Creative Direction of Alber Elbaz, the necklaces have magically transformed a seemingly traditional piece of jewelry worn by everyone’s grandmother into the most desired accessory and adorned by the world’s most elegant women. Sophisticated and playful, these spectacular Lanvin necklaces are an essential piece of luxury for every woman’s wardrobe. Worn with a dress from the Lanvin Bridal Collection or casually thrown around the neck with a white t-shirt and a pair of jeans, this versatile accessory unmistakably defines today’s Lanvin woman.
Whether you are a Bride dressed in Lanvin white, a Princess waiting to walk down the aisle or a little girl playing dress up with your mothers most treasured strands, Lanvin wishes all the women who wear these cherished pieces, that their lives be adorned with love and happiness.
