All The Most Classic Bands In Fine Jewellery Get An Update
byIMRAN JALALMay 03, 2018
From Chanel's Coco Crush line to Cartier's Maillon Panthere line, check out the latest updates of the most classic bands in fine jewellery. P.s. They really stack up.
New to Chanel Fine Jewellery’s Coco Crush line, recognisable by its “quilted” finish: a cocktail ring that gives the impression of wearing five rings stacked together (on ring finger, in 18K white and yellow gold with diamonds), and a bracelet in the brand’s trademark 18K beige gold. On middle finger: Rings in 18K white gold and yellow gold. Jacket, Chanel. Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello shorts, Saint Laurent
The USP of the grooved rings from Cartier’s Maillon Panthere line, which dates back to 1986: When worn stacked, they recall the chain of the brand’s signature Panthere de Cartier watch. How they’ve been updated: the introduction of bands in 18K white, yellow or pink gold, half paved in diamonds; and a fully paved yellow gold version.

Inset: The latest interpretation of Bulgari’s Colosseum-inspired B.zero1 ring? The Labyrinth (on left index and right middle fingers) featuring a graphic spiral of bands in 18K white and pink gold. On right index finger: B.Zero1 Design Legend rings in 18K white gold and pink gold, both with diamonds. On left thumb: Design Legend 18K white gold ring. Top, Tod’s.
Above: Boucheron’s ingeniously simple update of its chunky yet glamorous Quatre ring, which has the appearance of four different bands stacked together? Deconstruct them. Now, there are slimmer rings with a single texture: the ribbed Grosgrain (on index finger, in 18K white gold; and on ring finger, in 18K yellow gold); and the bevelled Quatre Clou de Paris (on index and middle fingers, in 18K yellow gold).
