Introducing The Legacy Collection
An Upper End Lab-Grown Color & Diamond Fashion Jewelry Line for NYFW
Aligning with Kevan Hall’s vision of Deauville to Cannes circa 1930s, Chatham designed an upper end line of jewelry in 18K gold. The collection takes the wearer from a daytime luxury resort look to the evening red carpet.
Kevan Hall’s fabric swatches served as the inspiration for Chatham’s new line. These styles include a myriad of cool colors that transport you to the Mediterranean Sea. For example, lab-grown Paraíba-colored spinel showcases an electrifying teal color resembling the Brazilian beaches of its namesake. Another featured gemstone, Chatham lab-grown chrysoberyl, displays a bright sea-foam green that pops in both yellow and white gold. Seaside resort looks also include Chatham lab-grown aqua blue spinel, emerald, and sapphire in a variety of shapes and sizes.
To enhance the designs even further, Chatham incorporated fancy shaped lab-grown diamonds for the first time. Select styles feature a mosaic of these sparkling beauties in tapered baguettes, marquise, princess and emerald cuts.
Each piece was meticulously designed to highlight the natural beauty and radiance of Chatham’s lab-grown gemstones. Such gemstones range from the softness of a lab-grown champagne sapphire to the mesmerizing green of a lab-grown emerald. These lab-grown gems added another element of sophistication and charm to Kevan Hall’s creations.
New York Fashion Week Shows the Future of High Fashion
The NYFW runway show wasn’t just about showcasing stunning jewelry; it was also about setting a new standard for fashion collaborations. It demonstrated that lab-grown gemstones and diamonds can be seamlessly integrated into high fashion without compromising on quality or style. New York Fashion Week 2023 marked a pivotal moment in the industry’s shift towards inclusivity by presenting all options to today’s luxury buyer.
In a world where consumer choices are increasingly influenced by ethical considerations, this collaboration showcased a path forward for the fashion industry. Chatham and Kevan Hall have not only created collections that dazzle the eyes but also touch the hearts of those who believe in a more sustainable and beautiful future for the luxury industry.
