De Beers just gave the gender-neutral fashion movement a sparkling endorsement.
On Monday, the diamond company released its first gender-neutral diamond jewelry collection, dubbed RVL. The assortment includes three rings, two pendants and two bracelets, all designed to stack and style to suit your personal taste.
The seven pieces in the collection showcase two contrasting materials: four of the pieces are crafted in 18-carat gold and adorned with pavé-set diamonds. The other three are in black titanium set in 18-carat pink gold. The white gold pieces include a diamond pendant in the shape of an irregular octagon and a bracelet with diamond lines. The bracelet is strung on a black knotted cord for a “well-traveled vibe,” according to the brand. A signet ring and an RVL band complete the quartet.
As a counterpoint to their white gold siblings, the trio of black titanium and rose gold pieces leans in contrast. A pendant, bracelet and ring make up this set, and each features lines formed from depressions in the metal. The resulting grooves are filled with rose gold to provide a striking accent to the brushed titanium surface. In an enigmatic twist, the three pieces each include a hidden diamond next to the hidden letters (on the back or inside band of the items). Only you will know the diamonds are there, giving you the ability to reveal them whenever you want.
The De Beers monogram inspired the design of the collection. The outlines of the “D” and “B” are printed on the metal surfaces of the line, resembling a secret code when viewed from the side. The jeweler notes that the design philosophy behind the initials, hidden within the pieces, is a nod to a more human dynamic – realizing one’s uniqueness is not always immediately obvious, but revealed over time.
“The beauty of this collection is that there is no prescription on who should wear these pieces or how they should be styled; it is entirely up to the wearer,” De Beers CEO Celine Assimon said in a statement. “The designs feature a secret code, but they also reflect visible ridges in the rocks, which reveal the history of the land in which our diamonds naturally formed. De Beers RVL serves to signify both our commitment to designing jewelery that allows our customers to express who they are and our heritage as pioneers of diamond perfection.
You can now shop the entire RVL collection on the De Beers website. Prices for gender-neutral pieces range from a $950 black titanium ring to a $5,900 white gold pendant.
