(Crewe, 22 March 2019) Bentley’s first jewellery collection comprises a timeless selection of contemporary diamond and gold pieces, designed and produced through an exclusive partnership with Heinz Mayer.
The collection opens up a new segment in the jewellery industry by integrating recognisable Bentley design features into every piece, creating a unique range of subtle yet distinctive pieces.
Presented at Baselworld in Switzerland, the two fine jewellery capsule collections – ‘Wings’ and ‘Everlasting’ – both have a focus on diamonds set in exquisitely crafted 18K white, rose and yellow gold settings.
Sculpted in unique shapes and lines inspired by Bentley’s signature ‘Wing’ badge, the collection balances a combination of the best traditional techniques and intricate mechanics to offer exquisite detailing. Bentley Jewellery is handcrafted by industry-leading artisans using only ethically sourced diamonds, precious metals and rare gem stones.
The exclusive collaboration between Bentley, the world’s leading luxury car maker, and Heinz Mayer, a family-owned manufacturer dating back to 1599, reflects a shared passion for bespoke craftsmanship and flawless detailing that captures the DNA of both brands.
Heinz Mayer is renowned for its class-leading expertise in creating fine, custom jewellery and as a pioneer in the use of diamonds and gemstones.
The partnership between the iconic British luxury car brand and the pioneer jewellery manufacturer translates a new and exciting element of modern design and the highest quality materials into wearable accessories that are truly authentic and individual for discerning global customers.
