Heidi Klum wearing Loree Rodkin jewellery
Sydney’s Fairfax & Roberts has become the exclusive stockist of Loree Rodkin jewellery in Australia. Although not particularly well known in Australia yet, Loree Rodkin jewellery has adorned numerous US celebrities including Madonna, Heidi Klum, Cher, Elizabeth Taylor as well as US First Lady Michelle Obama who wore the brand at President Obama’s inauguration ceremony.
The Los Angeles-based jewellery designer said the inauguration jewellery – a 10 carat diamond signet ring and diamond encrusted bangles and earrings which are now held in the permanent collection at the Smithsonian Museum – was every different to her usual “very edgy style”.
Rodkin entered the world of fine jewellery design after careers in luxury home design and A-list celebrity management and is now best known for statement pieces. Combining black rhodium-plated white gold with abundant diamonds, Rodkin creates “intricately crafted statement pieces that combine the modern with the medieval”.
Fairfax & Roberts CEO Georgina Brujic said the company is thrilled to be exclusively offering its customers the Loree Rodkin range.
“Her work is brilliantly conceptualised and executed and we love how it combines artisan engraving, ornate decoration and impeccable embellishment in pieces that are beautifully eye-catching,” she said.
“In addition to being a favourite of stars of music and screen, Rodkin designed the jewellery worn by First Lady Michelle Obama at President Obama’s inauguration ceremony.
