(WorldKings.org) Despite sky-high prices, the demand for high-end designer men and women’s jewelry brands only continues to grow. This is top 5 most famous designer jewelry brands in the world

1. Tiffany & Co

 

 

First called Tiffany & Young, Tiffany & Co. began as a stationery and fancy goods store in New York. Today, however, it is a household name that has been in business since 1837. Awarded for its silver craftsmanship, Tiffany and Co. remains America’s leading silversmith.

The brand showcases their more extravagant and rarest of pieces in their annual Blue Book collection that started in 1845. Some of their most popular and famous pieces include the Return To Tiffany, Tiffany Key and Tiffany Soleste and of course, their signature 6 prong engagement rings. Tiffany & Co. is famed for their little blue box, synonymous with quality, luxury and style.

2. Harry Winston

 

 

Harry Winston was founded in New York City in 1932 with Harry Winston, himself, as the founder. He was soon crowned the “King of Diamonds” and “Jeweler to the Stars” for his high-end creations.

One of the most notable pieces he acquired was the 45.42 carat Hope Diamond, a heart-shaped grayish-blue diamond crown centerpiece, which was passed along to King George IV of the United Kingdom. Today, it is found in Washington DC as part of the Smithsonian Institution displays.

3. Cartier

 

 

Founded in 1847 by Louis François Cartier, the brand earned its reputation as “The Jeweler of Kings, the King among Jewelers,” pioneering the combination of platinum and diamond. Their most notable lines include the Love collection, Juste un Clou and Panthere. These distinctive collections are widely popular with celebrities with variations available in different color golds and with or without diamond embellishment.

4. Chopard

 

Chopard is a Swiss brand started by Louis-Ulysse Chopard in the 1860s, originally known for creating watches and pocket watches for women. When Chopard was sold to Karl Scheufele in 1963, the brand was noted for its Art-Deco inspired timepieces and Happy Diamonds line.

The brand’s signature free floating diamonds behind the watch glass was created in the mid 1970s. It is now the corporate partner the Cannes Film Festival, official timekeeper of the Grand Prix of Monaco and the Mille Miglia. Chopard prides itself on the use of ethically sourced gold and aims to eventually use sustainable gold across all pieces that they produce.

5. Van Cleef &  Arpels

 

 

After their marriage in 1895, Alfred van Cleef and Estelle Arpels started a luxurious line in 1906 that still exists today. Opening their first store in Place Vendome in Paris, in the 1940s Van Cleef and Arpel opened their first US store in Palm Beach followed by New York.

Among some of the exceptional accomplishments of this maison is their patented, innovative creation called Mystery Set. An intricate piece with a clip that takes an astonishing 300 hours or more for a skilled jeweler to create. Van Cleef and Arpels are renowned for their playful use of animals, flowers and nature in their designs.
