Jewellery Watch: Serena Williams Poses Un-retouched for Harper’s Bazaar

Last week, photographs of Serena Williams in Harper’s Bazaar were unveiled. The tennis super star penned the article herself. The broadsheets, tabloids, social media and jewellery Facebook groups were abuzz with the ear cuff-cum-accessory-adornment featured in the editorial.

After an intense close to Wimbledon over the weekend, all eyes were on the tennis star. Yet, over the passed few days, the jewellery world was more focused on her accessories than her technique and tennis skills. In addition to th Gucci ear accessory, according to instylemag.com: Other jewelry that Williams wore for the photoshoot included Cartier earrings, a Bulgari bracelet, a David Yurman bracelet and chain and an Audemars Piguet watch.

Net-A-Porter’s New Digital Jewellery Platform

Last week (July 2019) Net-A-Porter announced a new digital jewellery platform, dedicated solely to select clients. The behemoth luxury online retailer launched their jewellery and watches branch last year, in April 2018. I’ve been waiting for this recent announcement as it is a reflection of the times we are in. Thrilled to see the fusion of haute luxury with technology!

RAPAPORT… High-end online retailer Net-a-Porter is set to launch an invitation-only digital platform, selling exclusive jewelry to its most loyal members. 

From later this month, customers who have been awarded EIP (Extremely Important People) status by Net-a-Porter will be able to access EIP Privé, a “private and personalized online space” within the Net-a-Porter website. 

The digital “destination” promises customers “the ultimate immersive and interactive experience for traditionally offline and highly renowned jewelry maisons.” Exclusive collections initially featured on the site will include Boehmer et Bassenge, Piaget, Boghossian, Bayco, Nadia Morgenthaler and Giampiero Bodino. Further designers will be added later this year, when the e-tailer plans to expand EIP Privé to offer watches and its men’s brand, Mr Porter.

The launch follows the creation of Net-a-Porter’s Fine Jewelry & Watch platform — which is open to all customers — in April last year. 

“Building on the success of our Fine Jewelry & Watch suite…EIP Privé will offer clients a truly unique opportunity to discover the world’s most exclusive high-jewelry maisons through a highly personalized, invitation-only service,” said Net-a-Porter and Mr Porter president, Alison Loehnis. 

The new luxury platform will include private viewings, bespoke requests and the ability to source unique pieces. EIP Privé will also feature a team of personal shoppers who can arrange private appointments for EIPs anywhere in the world. 

Net-a-Porter, which has been a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council since 2014, provides all of its personal shoppers with comprehensive diamond and gemstone education from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA).
