With the anniversary collection for Autumn / Winter 2017, Carola Eckrodt sums up COEUR DE LION’s 30-year history of design. In the FINECOEUR line, for instance, the designer makes greater use of genuine stones, which are combined with Swarovski® crystals and 316L -stainless steel to create a thoroughly sophisticated range of jewellery. The GEOCUBE design classic, which for the first time features a combination of amethyst, rose quartz, amazonite and onyx, is one of the highlights of this line.
Meanwhile, the SPARKLINGCOEUR range celebrates the enchanting allure of polished crystals from Swarovski® in all its facets. With her sensitive use of colour, Carola Eckrodt has used this material to create dazzling jewellery befitting of an anniversary.
On the subject of colour, many of the models are available in either subtle shades or contrasting, eye-catching com¬binations. The dominant colourways are carnelian red and denim blue, both twinned at times with a sandy beige and sherry brown. Meanwhile, the tone-in-tone pieces make their own celebratory statement with combinations of either silvery-grey chrome and black or rose gold and midnight blue.
30 years of COEUR DE LION. That’s 30 years of paying close attention to shapes, colours and materials to deliver on our pledge to create timelessly beautiful jewellery for women all around the world. It is a pledge which head designer Carola Eckrodt has lived up to with every single collection. As a multi-award-winning producer of high-quality designer jewellery, COEUR DE LION is now stocked by more than 3,000 jewellers in 30 different countries.
Carola Eckrodt is passionate about both harmonious colour combinations and thrilling contrasts. To celebrate our anniversary, the head designer would like to share this passion with you. Almost all of the existing bracelets from COEUR DE LION can now be worn with single-colour models. With some 40 creations featuring metallic mesh, woven metal and fabric, the anniversary collection covers the whole colour spectrum. This way you can arrange your very own combination of bracelets, safe in the knowledge that everything goes together. With more than a million possible combinations, certainly, your favourite combination will not appear a second time.
For the first time, COEUR DE LION is presenting a variety of examples of how bracelets can be mixed and matched, along with suggestions of outfits to wear them with. They include Carola Eckrodt’s personal favourites, which are pictured in our latest Autumn / Winter campaign – prêt-à-porter, so to speak.
Every day is different. Every mood is different. Sometimes, all you need is a single necklace, a sophisticated ring or an elegant bracelet to add the perfect finishing touch to your outfit. And sometimes, you need to add a bit more. Wouldn’t it be wonderful not to have to trawl through your jewellery box because you knew that everything went together perfectly?
That’s why COEUR DE LION jewellery is available in sets. In other words, there is a matching bracelet, earrings and often even a ring to go with every necklace. But it’s up to you whether you want the whole set. The price of the individual pieces is the same, whether you buy them separately or in a set.
Quality comes at a price at COEUR DE LION. Not only because we use for our products only exquisite materials but also work with modern manufacturing and finished processes that we improve on every year. At the same time, it is of vital importance to us to make jewellery affordable for many women. So we make careful calculations and treat our available resources with the utmost frugality. Our contribution to the democratisation of design, if you will.
Not everyone is used to looking at fashion jewellery online. That’s why our online shop allows you to examine each piece of jewellery closely – by magnifying it up to ten times. Just a handful of fashion jewellery retailers offer this service, which is only for manufacturers who have the utmost confidence in the quality of their designer jewellery.
There’s another way to spot high-quality designer jewellery, and you have to look very closely for this one too. Just keep looking until you find the quality seal which features on every necklace and bracelet. Because this is your guarantee that our jewellery, which is handmade in Germany, has undergone rigorous quality checks. Just as you would expect from a premium brand such as COEUR DE LION.
By the way, every piece of jewellery you order from COEUR DE LION comes beautifully arranged on a piece of silk in a high-quality designer case with a certificate of authenticity.
COEUR DE LION was established by Carola and Nils Eckrodt in 1987, and is now synonymous with excellent designer jewellery from Germany. Carola Eckrodt is the head designer. The COEUR DE LION brand is now present in more than 30 countries.
COEUR DE LION collections have timeless appeal. Carola Eckrodt combines clear shapes with a sensitive use of colour and a playful use of materials. In doing so, she follows an elementary design rule: harmoniously resolving contrasts truly engages the senses – those of the wearer and the observer alike.
COEUR DE LION jewellery is made using only high-quality materials, such as fine Swarovski® crystals, Polaris resin, genuine 316L stainless steel, and diamond-cut anodised aluminium – a popular choice and the very first material COEUR DE LION used back in 1987. The GEOCube collection dating from 1999, with its vibrant acrylic cubes and eye-catching contrasting colours, is still considered a German design classic and is admired around the world.
COEUR DE LION designer jewellery is made by hand in the company’s Stuttgart studios. Each necklace and bracelet has a stainless steel quality seal to show that it is genuine. This is your guarantee that you have purchased quality jewellery from COEUR DE LION which has undergone rigorous checks.
