Last September, iconic fashion designer Monique Lhuillier first launched her BLISS line of engagement rings and wedding bands with KAY Jewelers. Today, the guys can get in on the bling with her debut men’s jewelry collection.
I wanted this collection not only to be a special symbol of love, but also a complement to their partner’s ring.
“The Monique Lhuillier BLISS Collection is dedicated to celebrating life’s special moment—and this collection is yet another way to mark those significant occasions,” the designer, who is beloved for her iconic wedding gowns and ready-to-wear collections, tells Brides. “I’ve taken inspiration from favorite engagement rings in my collection and brought those design elements into men’s bands. A couple’s wedding bands will be worn for the rest of their lives, so I wanted this collection not only to be a special symbol of love, but also a complement to their partner’s ring.”
The nine different styles—which range in price from $2,200 to $6,500—include 18-karat white gold and two-tone gold designs encrusted with diamonds of various shapes. “It’s difficult for me to choose my favorites, but I absolutely love the Monique Lhuillier BLISS Men’s Diamond Wedding Band Marquise and Round-Cut band,” she says. “The combination of the marquise and round-cut diamonds in this band allows for it to have such a unique design."
The rings are for sale online at KAY.com in limited sizing, ranging from 9 to 12, or you can work with the team at KAY to customize your size. Engraving, ring sizing, prong and stone tightening, and damaged mounting repair are also available (for an additional fee).
Lhuillier also notes that she hopes to eventually expand the men’s collection to include more styles. “I’d love to see this collection continue to grow by adding more designs and metals,” she shares. “It’s certainly something I’d like to see in the future.”
