The famous London-based milliner Philip Treacy is set to design a collection of diamond engagement rings with matching wedding bands with the help of Voltaire Diamonds’ craftsmen.
According to Treacy, each set of rings will have an individual identity reflecting the emotional commitment involved in engagement and marriage.
Treacy said: “We want the collection pieces to represent beautiful, highly desirable, emotional symbols of love, which are also exclusive, treasured possessions.”
Voltaire Diamonds chief executive officer Seamus Fahy said: “Bringing Treacy’s design originality and remarkable vision to the creation of these rings will create an exceptionally special offering for brides-to-be, and provides a fresh and new creative option that will appeal to a discerning clientele.”
The collection will be launched to coincide with Valentines’ Day 2013.
Treacy has created a number of celebrated and controversial designs during his careers, including the "lobster" headpiece worn by Princess Beatrice at last year’s royal wedding. He has also designed hats for fashion designer Alexander McQueen, for his work with Givenchy in Paris, and for Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel.
