Kuid unistades unistage suurelt või üldse mitte midagi. Niisiis, vaatame täna 15 kõige kallimat disainer-ehete kaubamärki. Vaadake neid!
15 populaarseimat disainerist ehtebrändi
1. Tiffany & Co
Tiffany & Co nimele on lisatud võimas pärand ja see on esimene asi, mis meile pähe tuleb, kui me räägime disainerist ehetest. Esmakordselt asutas see kaupluse 1837. aastal nime all Tiffany, Young & Ellis, hiljem muutus nimeks Tiffany & Co ning laiendas oma baasi Londonisse ja Pariisi. See on kuulus maailmatasemel couture-ehete valmistamise poolest, olgu need siis teemandid, pasjans või plaatina. Jackie Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor ja paljud suured kuulsused on kõik selle lojaalsed kliendid.
Prantsuse disainer Louis Cartier asutas Cartieri 1847. aastal Pariisis. Mõne aastaga saavutas see peenete ehete valmistamise populaarsuse ja laiendas oma baasi teistesse maailma suurtesse linnadesse. 1947. aastal lõi Cartier legendaarse pantrikujulise sõlme, millel olid sillutatud teemandid ja kaunimad kalliskivid. See köitis nii maailma kui ka Windsori printsessi tähelepanu, keda see meistriteos tõepoolest lummas. Sellest ajast alates teeb Cartier sellest erineva versiooni, mis on jätkuvalt igal aastal kõige oodatum. See on tuntud ka parimate ja haruldaste ehete oksjonil müümise eest.

7. David Yurman
Started by David and Sybil Yurman in 1980 in New York, this American jewelry brand came in much later than the other big brands. But hey, it is no less than the other big names in the industry.

Boucheron was started in 1860 by Frédéric Boucheron, making jewelry for the elite Parisian community, and quickly became the center of luxury jewelry. In 1898, Boucheron moved to 26 Place Vendôme, which caught everyone’s attention. It was at the corner of the road and the brightest, which meant the jewels would sparkle and bring out the best. While the headquarters remains at the same place to this day, Boucheron has opened many other stores in Moscow, London, New York, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Dubai, etc. From bespoke designer pieces to watches and bridal collections, Boucheron remains at the top of its game.

Grace Kelly was one of its most loyal customers.
Chanel is a French couture label that is no news to any of us. The luxury fashion house was started in 1909 by the legend herself – Gabrielle or “Coco” Chanel.

Chanel is into designing fine contemporary jewelry and luxuriously sculpted diamond collections too.
Christian Dior is a master of its game, whether it is apparel, handbags, perfumes, or jewelry. The brand’s extension into jewelry making happened in 1950 since it was a natural progression and something that complements its existing product line.

If you are into pearls, you must have heard of Mikimoto, a couture company designing pearl jewelry of highest quality and design technique.

From Hollywood celebrities to everyone else in the world, H. Stern has a strong presence and a loyal customer base.
Laurence Graff alustas disainerikarjääri Inglismaal, kui ta oli kõigest 15-aastane, ja jätkas suure juveliiri käe all õpipoisiõppe, et muuta see oma elukutseks. Nii asutas ta ettevõtte Graff Diamonds - oma esimese kauplusega 1962. aastal ja mitmete poodidega varsti pärast seda Londonis. Lisaks peenete teemantehete kujundamisele on ta tuntud kuulsate teemantide kokkuostmise ja nende lähtestamise poolest. Tema parimaks tööks on töö 600-karaadise teemandiga, mis on tunnistus tema andest ja käskudest tehnikate üle.
