She’s a Spanish stunner who looks great in just about anything, but now Penelope Cruz is more gorgeous than ever, adorned with the ethical jewellery collection she just created alongside Atelier Swarovski. She showed off her designs at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week this year, and turned heads with the sparklers she created.
The American Crime Story actress stunned in an elegant black gown, which featured an intricate cut-out detailing, and which was adorned with her new jewellery range, called the Cocktail Of The New – Penelope Cruz Fine Jewelry Collection.
This wasn’t the first time her jewellery collection was on public display; she debuted it at the Cannes Film Festival a few weeks ago, while promoting her latest movie Everybody Knows (Todos Los Saben).
At that time, she appeared on the red carpet at a screening for the film sporting two pieces from the collection: earrings with a matching a ring set in white 18-karat Fairtrade gold set with Swarovski lab-created diamonds and lab-created rubies.
The actress seems to favour drop-style earrings, as she has created two styles for the brand: one with 3 pear-shaped rubies hanging from a floral ruby cluster, and another set with four round topaz stones, dropping down to a larger rectangular stone.
This collection coincided with the very welcome announcement that Atelier Swarovski’s pieces will always be made with responsibly sourced gold from now on. In fact, Atelier Swarovski is deepening its commitment to conscious luxury by moving away from mined gems and creating more lab-grown stones instead, which are far kinder to the Earth.
This is the first time Swarovski has worked with a major celebrity to create an ethical jewellery collection, and they follow in the footsteps of Chopard, which has co-created designs with the likes of Marion Cotillard and Cate Blanchett. The move definitely marks the next step on the company’s journey to becoming a leader in conscious luxury, and we hope they create more celebrity collaborations soon!
