MIAMI, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Today, Mayors Jewelers is hosting an exclusive event with Roberto Coin and his latest fine jewelry collection designed especially for the store's centennial anniversary. An Italian designer synonymous with innovative and timeless jewelry, Roberto Coin creates jewelry that is popular with customers all around the globe. Known for his 18K yellow gold pieces as well as for his use of diamonds and precious stones, Roberto Coin draws inspiration from the natural beauty of the world, including for the creation of the new Art Deco collection for Mayors.
The Art Deco collection was designed by Roberto Coin in celebration of Mayors' centennial. It includes colorful necklaces, bangles and earrings made of yellow gold, sterling silver and enamel with ornaments and motifs reflecting the lavishness and opulence that are characteristic of Art Deco style. The collection was inspired by the designer's personal memory of Miami Beach architecture and the beautiful Art Deco works of the 1920s, when roses adorned Champs-Elysees lampshades and sculptures. The Roberto Coin Art Deco collection is now available across Mayors stores.
"Mayors is one of my oldest partners in the United States; our relationship goes back to over 25 years," says designer Roberto Coin. "It is a pleasure to continue working with highly professional jewelers for whom design, service and quality are considered essential," he concluded.
