2012 Dream 2 Tresor Paris NEWS
Role Call Editor
agnetite, turquoise and, more recently, agate all help aid recovery in the body along with aligning the bodies ying and yan. Bracelets made completely from magnetite and agate have been incredibly popular amongst athletes and football stars alike, having been seen on Didier Drogba, Ashley Cole and double gold medallist / 2012 London Olympic games ambassador Dame Kelly Holmes, all of whom are huge fans of Tresor Paris. With other stars including JLS, Alexandra Burke, Amy Childs, Tinchy Stryder and The Saturdays as fans, Tresor Paris decided to add a new and exciting twist to their next collection. The Neptune range saw the cord being threaded through a continuous row of crystals inspired by the 1950’s Jane Mansfield era, the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. It soon began to out sell replacing the popular Monaco to become one of the most desired pieces of jewellery. It was a must for Christmas 2011. Orders are already being made for our special edition Valentine’s Day Amour and Je t’amié bracelet – as its on its way to becoming an iconic piece. Due to their success, Tresor Paris were given the opportunity to create a special limited-edition bracelet for the world famous award ceremony the MOBO’s. Tresor Paris created a pavé set rose and yellow diamond bracelet, which were given to each category winner. Categories included ‘Best UK Act’, ‘Best International Act’ and ‘Best British Male’, with the famous gongs going to Tinie Tempah, Dappy and Tinchy Stryder and, queen of the 2011 awards, Jessie J who went home
with four awards in total, including best song. Tresor Paris also created special edition bracelets for last years ITV1’s flagship show the X Factor. The eventual winners (Little Mix) were gifted with white pavé set bracelets, which incorporated the X Factor logo expertly handcrafted onto a single silver sphere. Other highlights have included supplying the jewellery for Miss World 2011 and partnering with charities Breast Cancer Care (BCC) and Children With Aids Charity (CWAC), both of which Tresor Paris is proud to be supporting. On a slightly negative note – some say it is a compliment (!) - there have been a growing number of ‘shadow brands’ and websites appearing with sub-standard, cheaply made bracelets trying desperately to jump on the back of our formidable enterprise. As a result, Tresor Paris have been actively working with the police and trading standards to try and shutdown these rogue traders and, so far, we have been having great success in this operation. Our team of solicitors and lawyers will stop at nothing to halt these people who are affecting not just Tresor Paris and its valued customers, but all other law-abiding traders and consumers. Since it’s introduction on the world, Tresor Paris has been a phenomenal success. With a new collection being launched at the Spring Summer fair at the NEC, Birmingham and other new and exciting collaborations and ranges in the pipeline, the Tresor Paris story has still got a long way to go.

ello and welcome to our 5th edition of Tresor Paris news. Firstly, may I wish all our readers a Happy New Year. What a spectacular 2011 it has been for Tresor Paris. I wrote a review of 2011 in the last issue of Tresor Paris news and I quickly had a read of it before writing this month’s notes and felt so proud to be associated with the success we have had. This year we embark on taking Tresor Paris global. The success to date is down to the hard work of all the Tresor Paris team at all levels. We are very grateful to all our retailers and stockists who have all played a significant part of the success story of Tresor Paris. Our first major event of the year is the Spring Fair at the NEC, Birmingham, which we are all excited about. IJL was a great success for Tresor Paris and if we have half the success we had at IJL it will be a great achievement, but we are expecting an even busier event this time around as we have had so many enquiries about the brand. We unveil our new spring summer 2012 collection at Spring Fair, which we are all excited about. This has been a closely guarded secret unfortunately due to shadow brands and cheaply made bracelets. The press have been clamouring for a preview of the long awaited collection, but we have limited the preview to only a few selected key publications and influential journalists – with the feedback being very positive. We welcome the return for our Tresor Paris bus. After a very busy Christmas period where the bus was seen all over London and the South East After a long earned rest the bus will be a big feature at our stand this year. It will give clients the chance to hop aboard our luxury bus. This month we turn our attention to our Malta retailers as well as listing some of our UK stockists who have made a major contribution to the success in 2011 – may it long continue into 2012 and beyond. Tresor Paris will be at: Hall 17 – Stand U04 – V05

Pic ‘n’ Mix Tresor Paris THERE must be something in the air at The X Factor towers Amelia Lily has revealed her love of Tresor Paris and now Little Mix are becoming attached too. Jade, Perrie, Jesy and LeighAnne have rarely been photographed without their array of Neptune bracelets and the lucky winners were also fortunate enough to receive special edition bracelets created for the eventual winners of the ITV show. The girl band, who originally auditioned as solo singers, were formed by their mentor and fellow singer Tulisa Contostavlos who thought that the girls would work better as a group. The four clicked instantly with rival judge Kelly Rowland even suggesting that they could be the best girl band to come out of the UK! Since the group shot to fame, they have been showered with praise for their positive attitudes and non-conformity, fashion wise, priding themselves on being good role models for the younger generations.
Each member has their own look and has even been noted as comparable to the infamous ‘Spice Girls’. Perrie Edwards christened the band members with their own titles; herself as ‘Boho Mix’, Jesy Nelson as ‘Swagger Mix, Jade Thirlwall as “Cutie Mix’ and Leigh-Anne Pinnock as ‘Fiery Mix’. Jesy, Jade, Perrie and Leigh-Anne are known for their individual style and Tresor Paris wanted to create something spectacularly fitting after the band were so taken with Tresor Paris’ existing designs. Jade was spotted wearing the La Roche pink crystal bracelet whilst Leigh-Anne has been sighted on numerous occasions with the Trouville. The bespoke X Factor bracelets incorporate the X Factor logo with white pavé set diamonds and rumor has it, the girls can’t get enough! The bracelets are completed with sterling silver balls and finished with an 18ct white gold plate. Such fans of the brand are Little Mix, Perrie Edwards even wore a Tresor Paris bracelet on the cover of their new single ‘Cannonball’. Tresor Paris wishes the best of luck to each member of Little Mix and hopes to be seeing them soon!
AMELIA LILY once twice three times the lady E
ver since the beginning of the 2011 series of The X Factor, songstress Amelia Lily was one of Tresor Paris’ favourites. The Middleborough sensation took viewers by storm and earned a sea of public support when despite delivering outstanding performances, she was voted out of the competition. No matter, Amelia was soon to return to our screens as the hit ITV show featured a twist, with Amelia going on to reach 3rd place in the finals. Having impressed audiences with hit singles such as The Show Must Go On, Amelia Lily has shown true fighting spirit and wowed viewers with both her vocal talents and individual style. Amelia, only 17 but already admired by many, has been spotted on various occasions with the Tresor Paris ‘Bastille’ bracelet and even wore it for her performance with fellow X Factor contestants and bands JLS and One Direction. The groups sang ‘Wishing on a Star’ for the children’s charity ‘Together for Short Lives’ which also featured on the Marks and Spencer’s television advert over Christmas. Amelia was given the ‘Bastille’ by her dance school and has rarely been seen without it since – perhaps it
is her good luck charm - she even referred to it as “the best present ever”! Despite finishing third, the young lady with the big voice declared that it “wasn’t the last of Amelia Lily... My ambition was to get to the final and I did it.” As well as her faithful multicoloured ‘Bastille’ bracelet, Amelia was seen supporting the Breast Cancer Care charity by tweeting a picture of her new Tresor Paris ‘La Bande Rose’ bracelet; “get one of these beauts n support xx” she sweetly commented. Having already gained over 550, 000 followers on Twitter, Amelia Lily is no doubt going to be one of the biggest talents to come out of The X Factor and hopefully, will be sticking around on our screens in future years! Rumours even suggest that Amelia will be releasing a duet with her X Factor mentor and infamous solo artist Kelly Rowland. Amelia Lily recently confirmed that the pair have recorded a single together. With Kelly Rowland also requesting a bespoke bracelet from Tresor Paris, Amelia is sure to be following in her mentor’s success, both voice and style wise!

AMAZING GRACE The style of a Hollywood Icon T
The winner is Grace Kelly and her 1954 Best Actress Oscar
Actress Grace Kelly, ‘The Princess Bride’
he ‘Golden Age of Hollywood’ saw the stars of the silver screen sparkle brighter than they ever had before. Many actresses of the fifties would leave a glamorous and thrilling legacy behind them. Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn all had their distinctive style but only one woman encompassed both the romance and excitement of Hollywood. Grace Kelly was the true Hollywood Icon. Kelly had the face of an angel but she had a mysterious side too. This iconic mix is found in Tresor Paris’ glittering new ‘Neptune’ collection; its design indulges in the lavish beauty of the crystal covered spheres and the intensity of the dark grey magnetite. Highlighting the dramatic contrast between these two elements – the colours, texture and finish, creates a truly exquisite piece. Just like Grace Kelly captivated her audiences, we are sure this new collection will captivate all who behold it. Looking back at some pivotal moments in Graces Kelly’s life we imagine what bracelet encapsulates the magic of the moment. Grace’s life was a whirlwind of fame, rumours and fairytale romance. She was muse to director Alfred Hitchcock, the alleged lover of many of her leading men and went on to become Princess of Monaco. Tragically Kelly died, aged 52, after she crashed her car in 1982. Her short but glittering screen career left a lasting impression on generations to come and secured her position as a 1950’s Hollywood icon. Kelly studied her craft at America Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, after gaining some roles in television she went to Los Angeles to make her name in the movies. In 1953 Kelly’s role in MGM’s ‘Mogambo’ gained her a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress and an Oscar nomination in the same category. Her success was celebrated further when, only a year later, she won the Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her part Kelly, sophisticated in effortlessly in ‘The Country Girl’. The ‘Arles’ light ‘Rear Window’ blue crystal bracelet would be the perfect bracelet to compliment the ice blue satin dress Kelly wore to the 1954 Academy Awards. Renowned costume designer Edith Head’s design was simple and elegant, containing subtle details such as double spaghetti straps and folded fabric on the front of the skirt.
Our Toulon bracelet, composed almost entirely from natural magnetite stone
The Bourgogne tiger eye is thought to dflect negative emotions
Our Lyon amethyst bracelet, believed to aid protection
WHEN informed about the origin of Tresor Paris crystal and natural stone jewellery, many clients are amazed to learn that something so alluring is derived from something entirely natural. Scientifically speaking, crystals (or crystalline solids to be completely accurate) are a solid material where all of its atoms are arranged in an orderly and repetitive pattern, extending in all three special dimensions. It is this construction that helps to make them one of the most beautiful jewels in the world – snowflakes are also classed
The look was finished with a sophisticated pair of long white silk gloves. Grace Kelly achieved star status through her work with ‘The Master of Suspense,’ director Alfred Hitchcock. She starred in three of his films, ‘Dial M for Murder’, ‘Rear Window’ and ‘To Catch a Thief ’. Kelly was said to be Hitchcock’s favourite leading lady and they admired each other greatly. In ‘Rear Window’ Kelly gave a fabulous performance beside James Stuart as his love interest, the feisty Manhattan socialite and fashion journalist, ‘Lisa Fremont’. In one scene, in which she brings dinner to the apartment, Kelly wears an exquisite evening gown created by Edith Head. The black bodice of the dress falls into a full white skirt with black embroidered branch and leaf detail. The black crystal ‘Antibes’ and white crystal ‘Laye’ bracelets would look dazzling with an elegant monochrome look such as this. While at the Cannes Film Festival in April 1955, Kelly was invited to do a photoshoot at the Monaco Palace with Prince Rainier III. That December the prince flew to America and met Grace and her family; three days later he proposed. The musical ‘High Society’ in which Kelly starred beside Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra was her last film. In the film her character’s engagement ring is the real Cartier 10.47 emerald-cut diamond engagement ring Kelly received from Rainier. The Neptune collections ‘Trouville’ bracelet, with its decadent gold and white crystal combination, would be the perfect accompaniment to a ring of such splendour. Tresor Paris’ number one bracelet the ‘Monaco’ takes its name from this fabulous sovereign state-city, the bracelet evokes the glitz and glamour of the French Riviera. This was the location of the Prince and Princess of Monaco wedding on April 18 1956. Grace’s wedding dress was designed by Academy Award winning MGM costume designer Helen Rose. It was the most expensive dress she had ever designed; she worked for six weeks on the dress with a team of three dozen seamstresses. The magnificent gown was fit for a princess; its lace bodice was made of Valenciennes lace that was over a century old; 25 yards of silk taffeta and 100 yards of silk net were also used in its creation. Grace Kelly’s fairytale marriage to a prince and her style still resonate with people today. It was commented last year that Kate Middleton’s Alexandra McQueen wedding gown paid tribute to Kelly’s own. The beauty and excitement of the characters Grace Kelly portrayed on screen was only rivalled by the passion and romance of her own life. Tresor Paris hopes we can bring some Grace Kelly style Hollywood glamour to 2012 in the form of the iconic ‘Neptune’ collection.
as crystals, though Tresor Paris haven’t quite gotten around to securing snowflakes in their designs! Crystals are commonly recognised for their shape, consisting of flat faces with sharp angles. If you look closely at the spheres present on a Tresor Paris bracelet, you will see the flat angles, grouped together to create a sparking sphere, which catches the light however constrained its surroundings. As well as being desirable to the eye, crystals and natural stones are also sought after for their many additional qualities. Spiritual enthusiasts believe that they have various advantages such as assisting with positive emotions and healing. Natural crystals are thought to have curative effects and when worn as talismans, they are believed to increase the body’s positive energy field. Amethyst is thought to aid protection, increase intuition and help to remember dreams. Carnelian, which is a female stone, is believed to heal and balance the reproductive system whilst the golden Tiger Eye stone clears and deflects negativity.
Agate is a popular and recent addition to the Tresor Paris family, with these stones most noticeable properties balancing yin/yan energy, aiding and healing and promoting courage. As well as using a variety of precious stones within their designs, Tresor Paris incorporates magnetite in each one of their traditional bracelets and necklaces. Magnetite is a key element of Tresor Paris jewellery, as its magnetic quality is believed to attract love, commitment and loyalty. In addition to this, the magnetite stone is also thought to benefit the circulatory systems, enhance creativity and strengthen intellect. Crystals and natural stones have also been used for many centuries but more recently, their charms have been rediscovered, largely by Tresor Paris, who are The Bayonne agate proud to be stone bracelet is not the original only fashionable but creators of it is also used for healing the bead phenomenon.

Looking out across the stunning views of the city with your loved one is a fantastic way to spend a romantic afternoon and evening; it also provides the perfect location for anyone planning to pop that all-important question! The city has several vantage points, the Eiffel Tower of course being the most famous, with views of all of Paris’ famous landmarks. You can walk up to the top deck, however, this is not advised. If you want to be able to talk to your other half when you get up there it might be a good idea to take the elevator up the 1063ft tower! If you are looking for somewhere a little quieter, Parc de Belleville, a short walk down the street from Onze Bar, is a hidden gem that provides both
excellent views of the city and romantic walks through the park. If you’re feeling a bit more energetic, wrap up warm for a cosy bike ride à deux through the dreamy Bois de Boulogne, or skate handin-hand at Montparnasse or even smooch in the Place des Vosges’ secret garden; perfect for Valentine’s in Paris. Sweep your loved one up in a hot-air balloon and toast your love to them with a lovely bottle of champagne while in the air looking at the breath taking views of the city, there could not be a more romantic way to view the city of love. Who could resist a romantic trip around Paris by boat. This is unparalleled as romantic experiences go. The city seems to be fanned out before you as you lazily drift down the Seine River you get a glimpse of some of the city’s most mythical spots while enjoying a romantic evening sipping wine or champagne amid the soft glow of light on the water, or just sit back and revel in the fresh air and delicious floating in a scenic loving setting.

Valentine is a time of Love and Romance and sometimes can be a bit costly. But fear not readers, Valentine in London doesn’t have to cost you the earth.

FA S H I ON W E E K!
FAHION WEEK has arrived! If you have a case of the post-Christmas blues, fear not - the greatest fashion event of London is ready to put some excitement back into our lives. Running from 17th-22nd Feb, London Fashion Week will showcase an array of existing designers as well as new emerging talent and there’s sure to be some impressive individuals. Catwalk shows and exhibitions will be seen from crowds of adoring public as well as industry experts. Brands will include the McQ Alexander McQueen label, Vivienne Westwood and Paul Smith as well as up and coming designers who have been fortunate
enough to gain a place through the Elle magazine Talent Launch Pad and Topshop’s NEWGEN talent identification scheme. Every year, fashionistas from all over London make their way down to Somerset House in central London and leave laden down with new purchases along with a whole lot more information of the years upcoming trends. Tresor Paris are looking forward to previewing the SS12 trends, and are sure to be at the height of this years fashion wish lists.
Name: Khurram Shahzad Position: Sales Co-ordinator As a valued member of the team, Sales Co-ordinator, Khurram Shahzad makes a significant contribution to the successful running of the Tresor Paris Head Office. How long have you been at Tresor Paris and how did you get into your current role? I started a year ago but have been in the trade for 5 years. During that time I worked as a jewellery buyer/ manager so I have a good eye for quality! I’ve also dabbled in Visual Merchandising, which comes in very handy. What interests you working within the jewellery trade? I have always been interested due my jewellery background. I’ve travelled around and I love looking around at other cultures jewellery. My favourite items are watches so I’m very excited that Tresor Paris are adding these to the collection. I’m also a big fan of the bracelets – I like the La Fleche but soon I will be purchasing the St Cloud. What are the best things about your job? I deal with our wholesale clients and I enjoy the statistical side of the orders. I’m very sociable so I also enjoy speaking to clients regularly. Being
the only man in my team, working alongside 6 girls, at times is not easy but can be a lot of fun! Where do you see yourself in 5 years time? It’s a long way away but I would love to be the Sales Director of Tresor Paris in the Far East. I’d stay based in London but oversee the expansion of Tresor Paris to a wider market. Our current Director might have to watch out! What do you think of the Tresor Paris brand? It’s very beautiful. The public seems to fall in love with the brand, particularly in Dubai. Each time I’ve visited, I’ve had the locals commenting on my bracelets! How do you see the brand developing? I hope that one day we are as successful as Louis Vuitton. I also admire how Montblanc started off with pens but expanded to a variety of items. Now they are huge and I think Tresor Paris could follow in their footsteps. We are already adding new items this year so who knows? Having met various celebrities, who is your favourite and why? I enjoyed meeting JLS but I would love to meet Cheryl Cole - I think she would fall in love with Tresor Paris!
THE FESTIVE period is over and 2012 is here. If you didn’t get your required fashion fix over Christmas, don’t panic; Tresor Paris News is back to take a look at the key trends for the coming year. There have been so many reports on an array of trends from A-Z, but there are only a few that Tresor Paris feel are really wearable and worthy of the title ‘2012 Staple’. Here’s our pick of the best;
Tux Luxe Double up on the monochrome look with the two tune Aurel
Magic Metallic A lot of the trends for the coming year have been inspired by the party season with all of the glitz and glam that it brings. Take the Metallic trend for example. We’re not talking sequins or embellishment here, but ‘elusive’ metallic. The metallic trend is flattering and providing you wear it in the right way, understated… We saw it on the catwalk and now it’s hit the high street! These slim-fit trousers from fellow Parisian brand La Redoute are a sure fire way to dabble in metallic this season. Team with a loose fit tee, shoe boots and the Tresor Paris Verfeil bracelet from the Neptune collection.
This look is practical yet exciting. Tux Luxe incorporates the best of city chic with 2011’s ‘musthave’, the androgyny tux. 2012 will see the tux take a softer shape and influence other key looks, such as pencil skirts with sheer blouses and strappy heels. The 2012 Tux Lux look is great as it is so versatile – whether you opt for navy or simple white, this look is guaranteed to stay ontrend for the whole of 2012 and can be altered for all seasons. This M & S twotone blazer goes perfectly with the Aurel white crystal and black agate bracelet. Wear with a slick side bun for a work wear look. A magpie’s guilty pleasure, the Verfiel is full of dazzling sparkle
Pretty in Pastel A taste of summer, the pastel trend is reminding us of ice cream cones and beach huts. Don’t be afraid to team different colours together such as pale blue and lilac. If you don’t want to go all out, try pastel shades with your make-up and accessories. A little goes a long way! The Choisy and Le Mans bracelet are the perfect accompaniment to this mint green prom dress by South at very.co.uk.
Champdor, white and gold crystals add a touch of class to an ensemble
However, if you are not prone to all that shimmers, you can find similar colours within the Powder Perfect trend. Official name this is not, but rather fitting. This look is all about making the most out of the natural female figure with delicate materials in equally delicate shades. Think mink, nude and dusty pink and you can’t go far wrong. It will take you right through to the height of summer and you’ll become so attached, you might never let go. For a soft feminine look, team this Glamorous ruffle dress with the Tresor Paris Champdor necklace and nude heels à la Kate Middleton.
Choisy & Le Mans, two pretty pastels sat side by side. A match made in heaven
NOT by all the success! A
fter a successful year in which the band NDubz released their greatest hits album, it has also seen one of the UK’s most successful acts in recent years deciding to confirm that they will be undergoing a two year ‘hiatus’, in which fellow band members and cousins Dappy and Tulisa pursue solo careers and other projects while Fazer turns his hand to what he does best and continues to produce hit records. With the anticipated release of his debut album due for release in 2012. After a well earned break where he was seen sun bathing and relaxing with his girlfriend Tulisa Contostavlos, the couple enjoyed a romantic New Year’s holiday in the Maldives, where they lapped up the luxury at the picturesque Coco Palm resort.
in the magic
Tresor Paris NEWS February, 2012 11 The couple strolled along the blinding white sand on the shoreline, sipping on cocktails and stopping to gaze at the scenery. Fazer ensured he was heavily accessorised with his watch, belt, necklaces, cap and of course his Tresor Paris Bracelets. The duo, who have known each other for well over a decade but officially began dating in May 2010, were in great spirits as they splashed about in the crystal clear sea. Tulisa wrapped her arms around her boyfriend as he gave her a piggy-back in the shallow water before turning around to embrace her. Last year Fazer spoke about his plans for a solo album. He stated a few names he may possibly be working with; including Katy Perry, Rihanna and Tinie Tempah. He also went on to reveal the possibility of teaming up with Chris Brown for a single. He is currently working on his forth coming album.
WE at Tresor Paris are well accustomed to celebrities popping in. But it was a great pleasure to have band member Simon Webbe from Blue pop into our showrooms with film crew in tow. They were following him for a fly on the wall series to be aired later this year. Simon was on his way to a video shoot a nightclub Gilgamesh in Camden, North London where he was appearing alongside Lucien Laviscount, Ashley Walters and U.S rapper Mann. Before Simon left there was just time to pick up a few bracelets and special bracelet for his lovely model girlfriend Maria. Since entering the music industry Simon has extended his range of business ventures. His two most notable companies are Love 4 Music and Love 4 PR, both of which he co-runs with Jade Reuben. In the past Simon has also managed the group VS who supported Blue on their 2009 tour. They were also signed to Innocent Records, the same label as Blue, and released three singles, ‘Love You Like Mad’ (#7), ‘Call U Sex’ (#11) and ‘Make It Hot’ (#29), plus an album, All Kinds of Trouble. The band has since broken up and member Marvin Humes is now part of boy band JLS. In 2004, Simon was voted Company magazine’s 62nd Sexiest Man Alive and appeared as a striker on Sky One’s, The Match. In 2007 he released a series of educational DVDs for children entitled Simon’s Web. The six volumes endeavoured to teach children about the Internet, its history and uses. In 2008, he starred in British reality television show, I’m a Celebrity…Get Me out of Here!. On 28 April 2009, Blue announced that they have reformed and returned to the stage that had summer with a new album. In 2010, Webbe played the role of Curtis Shank in Sister Act the musical at the London Palladium. During his run, Webbe starred alongside Sheila Hancock and Hollywood academy award winner Whoopi Goldberg. Simon made a guest appearance on BB11 in August 2010 singing a new track to the housemates. Simon along with the other members of Blue Anthony, Duncan and Ryan represented the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 in Germany. The group finished a respectable11th in the competition. In November 2011, Simon announced that he would be taking part in the BBC competition Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special. Simon was the first celebrity to compete (dancing the Cha Cha Cha to Merry Christmas Everybody) - supported in the audience by fellow Blue band mates Duncan James and Anthony Costa. His celebrity partner was Katya Virshilas. Simon finished in joint 3rd with a score of 36 out of 40. The Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special.

A Dream come true In December’s ‘Tresor Pairs News’ we gave our readers an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the photo shoot for Tresor Paris’ new campaign. Tresor Paris is known for its beautiful Parisian inspired jewellery that combines Tibetan cord with crystal covered spheres. This bohemian design with a glamorous twist created the acclaimed ‘Orion’ collection. Our best selling bracelet, ‘The Monaco’, displays this highly admired design in its purest form. Fashion is always changing and Tresor Paris wanted to give their fans a new design unlike any they had created before. The ‘Dream’ campaign would introduce Tresor Paris’ luxury jewellery and newest creations to the world. It was time to introduce the public to the ‘Neptune’ collection. This new collection is decadent as sparkling champagne and beautiful as the movie stars of the Golden age of Hollywood! This time the crystals are at the forefront of the design; with less cord seen, the focus is on the glamour and sparkle of the exquisite semi precious stones. This fabulous collection and selected pieces from Tresor Paris’ original ranges are all showcased in the stylish shots that form the new campaign. The ‘Dream’ campaign stars Brazilian models Michelle D and Vinicius and Tresor Paris Chief Designer Lilian Lousky also makes an appearance. The two young models truly capture the mood of the jewellery. They are the personification of the two sides of the ‘Neptune’ collection; the lavish beauty of the crystal covered spheres and the intensity of the dark grey magnetite. The intensity between them is captured in these atmospheric photos. We are proud to reveal the final shots chosen for the Tresor Paris ‘Dream’ campaign, soon to be seen in our offical stockists across the UK!
