Emily Ratajkowski is a lot of things to a lot of people: actress, model, fashion influencer, girl crush, Instagram selfie master. One could also argue that she qualifies as a modern-day version of the goddess of beauty, with the allure and posing abilities that could rival those of Lada in Slavic mythology or Adara in Greek mythology. These figures were among the key starting points for her latest venture, a jewelry collection she designed in collaboration with Spinelli Kilcollin. The seven pieces, which include mixed-metal hoop earrings and a linked pavé diamond ring, are appropriately named after those two paragons of pulchritude, as well as the Turkish Ayla, halo of light around the moon, and Vesta, a Roman goddess of hearth, home, family, and domestic life. The collection launches in stores and online at Barneys New York and thedropLA@barneys on Saturday, June 2nd and prices start at $6,000.
The EmRata x Spinelli Kilcollin line is Ratajkowski’s entrée into the world of jewelry design, but as she explains, she’s always been “a superfan of the brand.” She discovered it about six years ago, when she started wearing one of its simple gold linked rings every day. She became close friends with cofounders Yves Spinelli and Dwyer Kilcollin, and together they decided to embark in this surprising creative project.
Ratajkowski has long been a fan of diamonds and credits her “years of obsessing over jewelry” as the main draw to this collaboration. Aside from the goddess influences, she also explains that “the aesthetic borrows from a young royal, a princess who likes to hit the town in jeans and decadent hoops.” She also used one of her own vintage rings, which she purchased at a consignment shop in Palm Springs, as a reference point for the new line and, specifically, for the pendant necklace. As is true in her covetable day-to-day wardrobe (remember her Zara wedding suit?), Ratajkowski loves to experiment with blending high and low when it comes to accessories. “I’m a huge gold and diamond person. I’ll wear a diamond necklace with sweats or with a swimsuit on the beach,” she says, noting that she often likes to “mix classic fine jewelry with funkier pieces. To me, jewelry is all about having fun and feeling pretty.”
