If you thought fashion mogul Karl Lagerfeld had enough on his plate with designing clothes, handbags and accessories for Chanel, Fendi and his own label, not to mention his artistic endeavors, photography projects and graphic design work on the Diet Coke bottle, then think again. Vogue has just revealed a first look at Karl's new engagement rings in partnership with jewelers Frederick Goldman.
“I had never done a ring for that occasion,” Lagerfeld told Vogue. “It was kind of a challenge.” FW16 will see three styles of engagement rings that are meant to "appeal to the millennial crowd." The first line features pointed studs similar to the ones seen throughout the accessory lines of his own label, while the second uses modern, geometric shapes, and the third is inspired by the curves and arches of Parisian architecture.
“The rings had to express something that concerns the heart and real feelings,” he said. “It has to be a symbol and a sign of a real wish of engagement. It has to be elegant but not bling-bling.”
Each style is offered in 18-karat white and yellow gold, as well as platinum, with prices starting at $1,000, going all the way up to $10,000.
Lagerfeld's Chanel has also recently announced a fashion collaboration with Pharrell Williams.
