Introducing the Versailles Collection

Posted on January 27, 2014 by Courtney Weil | 0 comments

Ecstatic, and a little relieved, to be sharing the Versailles Collection with you all! I've been slowly dreaming, planning, designing, shooting, creating, and growing this collection since September, and I absolutely love the way it all came together. This collection was the first go-round where I developed the collection as a whole months before launching. I gave myself the time to sit and stare at all the pieces together without rushing to get things done. Nothing in this collection came quickly -- every week I added one or two more pieces to the collection, after designing dozens of pieces that didn't quite make the cut. It was both exciting and frustrating, but I really enjoyed the entire creative process this time around even more than usual because I somehow managed to quiet my procrastinating tendencies by working months in advance. Throughout the process, I perused the Palace of Versailles website, from which I tried to capture the opulence of the French royals while translating it into a modern, wearable jewelry line. It was beyond fun and hopefully all my talk of Versailles has convinced my husband we need to visit soon! Trip to France, you are certainly on my radar.

I showed the collection at Market in Atlanta for my wholesale customers the first week of January and the response was overwhelmingly lovely. Keep an eye on our stockist page as we're updating it daily as packages go out to lots of new stockists, as well as our loyal favorites.

Finally, a brief introduction to some of my favorite pieces from the elegant + opulent + romantic Versailles Collection!

The Antoinette Necklace, named after Marie Antoinette!

Fountain pendant + Autumn necklace. Autumn is a super legit layering piece that is a versatile addition to a jewelry wardrobe. It is a delicate layer that fits so nicely with so many other necklace, shorter or longer. Delicate + minimalist perfection!

The Empress pendant. Bold + feminine, a bit how I imagine the women of the Palace of Versailles to be.

The Lorde necklace -- a wearable statement piece that is delicate enough for everyday wear. A customer favorite at Market, too!

Be sure to check out the new Versailles Lookbook for styling ideas and lots more prettiness! A huge thank you to Mahwesh + Emily + Susan + Anna, our lovely models for the day, and Christian our photographer. I cannot wait for our next shoot with these lovelies; they are a dream! And don't forget to peruse + shop the entire collection! Which pieces are your favorite?
