Re­nee’s bling

New ven­ture for Rachel and Rod’s girl

Herald on Sunday - - FRONT PAGE - Ri­cardo Simich

Re­nee Stew­art is no stranger to mak­ing an im­pres­sion on cat­walks around the world.

And now the daugh­ter of Kiwi su­per­model Rachel Hunter and chart-top­ping British rocker Rod Stew­art is set to make a splash with her lat­est jew­ellery cre­ations.

The 26-year-old has com­bined with Lon­don-based Monarc Jew­ellery to de­sign a range of daz­zling bling.

The new col­lec­tion fea­tures a range of brooches, lapel pins, ear­rings, neck­laces and rings.

Monarc founder Ella Drake hails from New Zealand.

A state­ment from Monarc said Stew­art and Drake were “proud to an­nounce the col­lec­tion”.

“The col­lab­o­ra­tion evolved from Re­nee and Ella meet­ing through a mu­tual friend in Lon­don, pro­ceed­ing to de­velop the se­ries over many stu­dio ses­sions to­gether.

“The two in­cor­po­rated Re­nee’s nat­u­ral creative flair for shape and form through her con­tem­po­rary dance ca­reer, which be­came an over­ar­ch­ing theme of their ses­sions.”

As well as be­ing a model, Stew­art is a grad­u­ate from the Lon­don Con­tem­po­rary Dance School.

Last year she walked the red car­pet at the

Brit Awards in Lon­don, and also fea­tured on the cat­walk at the Mi­lan Fash­ion Show dur­ing the show­ing of Dolce & Gab­bana.

On its web­site, Monarc says its of­fer­ings were “a hand­picked se­lec­tion of in­ter­na­tional bou­tiques across Eu­rope and Aus­trala­sia”.

“Monarc is based in Lon­don with an em­pha­sis on crafts­man­ship, premium ma­te­ri­als and be­spoke ser­vice. Its ob­jec­tive is to cre­ate mod­ern, clas­sic jew­ellery to be worn now and passed on to fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.”
