Exclusive.. Lorraine Schwartz…
Besides Kanye and Kim, the name on everyone’s lips today is the designer of Kim’s engagement ring, Lorraine Schwartz. Schwartz is one of the most exclusive jewellery designers in the world. Her exclusivity is evident in how she sells her pieces. The easiest way to purchase a a ring from Schwartz is in-store from retail complex Bergdorf Goodman in New York. So rare are these pieces that you cannot even view them online, you have to go to the store to view the collection.
The other method of acquiring one of these designs is by going to Schwartz’s 5th Avenue boutique, meeting with her, and having it custom made. You can imagine for yourself the cost involved in such a process. But, if you want a unique and beautiful item of jewellery, these are the prices you need to pay.
If this is the first time hearing about Schwartz, I can guarantee that this isn’t the first time you’ve seen her work. At the Emmys earlier in the year, Sofia Vergara, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Sarah Hyland all wore pieces by Schwartz. Other interesting stories include Schwartz’s outrage when Kris Humphries sold the engagement ring she had made for Kim Kardashian for $500,000 more than he paid for it.
