For autumn 2016 Domino has added ten new suites to its popular Belle Ile Collection. This range is well-known for its special occasion suites of neckwear and earrings available in 18ct white, yellow or rose gold.
The new pieces are trend responsive and make particular use of both sophisticated white-on-white diamond designs as well as offering coloured alloys set with richly coloured gemstones.
Each suite features a necklace or pendant and a set of matching earrings. The new designs follow the five stories that were introduced to the Belle Ile collection in 2015; Glacier, Ore, Eden, Spectrum, and Midnight.
Glacier reflects a cool palette that really enhances the purity and sparkle of pure white diamonds. New to this ‘theme’ is an on-trend circular pendant and earring suite featuring channel-set round and baguette diamonds.
Also introduced to Glacier is an art deco inspired cabochon suite available in a variety of gemstone options. A matching ring is featured in Sienna, Domino’s semi-set diamond ring mount collection.
Where Glacier’s look is crisp and clean, Ore is all about the warmth and the sheer luxury of rich rose and yellow gold with just a sprinkling of ‘highlight’ diamonds. New designs here include a spectacular reticulated diamond and yellow gold suite inspired by autumn leaves. The second suite is all about the rich, warm tones of gold with a yellow gold chain featuring pebble-shaped links – without a diamond in sight this suite is simplistic yet stunning.
Inspired by the natural world, Eden draws its creativeness from floral and botanical themes. The focus of this range is white metal and diamonds, with dainty flowers and clover-leaf shapes providing the key motifs.
Spectrum is a collection for those who love the bright and the bold. This collection uses the ‘big three’ gemstones to dramatic effect. Here the designers have turned to Islamic architecture and the glories of the peacock’s tail to create two sumptuous new suites perfect for the forthcoming party season.
For their inspiration in creating Midnight, the design team looked to the heavens. Here you will find diamonds set in halos and coronas around a central stone. Mother-of-pearl makes an entrance to create a simple, clean look for day wear, whilst the second suite features over-lapping and inter-twining diamond hoops hanging from a delicate chain providing a sophisticated night-time option.
“We are delighted with these new designs which offer our retailers an even more comprehensive selection. Many Belle Ile designs, including some of the latest editions, are available at price points which make them perfect ‘pick up’ options ideal for the forthcoming Christmas season. Others are tremendous ‘hero pieces’ ideal for creating a stir in our retailers’ Christmas windows and offering unique, special -occasion jewellery for consumers seeking something truly eye-catching and unusual,” says Domino’s marketing co-ordinator, Chantelle Serrell-Cooke.
