Is Jewelry Sexy? Kahn and Kiki Say Yes

-------

The association of jewelry and love is long-standing—or, at least as long-standing as De Beers’ “A Diamond Is Forever” ad campaign. (That debuted in 1947, for you advertising and diamond buffs out there.) The link between jewelry and sex, however, has been more under wraps, until now. Meredith Kahn is taking that relationship aboveground. The Made Her Think designer is collaborating with upscale erotic emporium Kiki de Montparnasse on an exclusive range of fine jewelry, which will be launched with a fête at the Soho shop this Thursday night with an event hosted by Byrdie Bell. “This will actually be the second time my jewelry has been sold at Kiki,” Kahn reports. “When the store first opened, they used some of my stuff in a shoot, and wound up asking for more to sell.” Currently, Kahn’s pieces for Kiki de Montparnasse include double-chain rings, in sterling, $495, or rose gold, $795; and matching diamond-paved bangles, which go for $1,400 or $8,200. A couple of pricier items will also be available for special order. “There’s always been a hint of eros to my work,” Kahn adds. “And in general, I think people experience jewelry in a very sensual way.”
