CHARRIOL Global Jewelry Collection

CHARRIOL, the global prestige brand of luxury timepieces, fine jewelry and accessories, is bringing its global jewelry collection to the U.S. for the first time ever. Featuring CHARRIOL’s iconic and unique twisted cable designs, the collection, which is designed by the company’s New York-based Creative Director, Coralie Charriol-Paul, will debut at LUXURY during JCK Las Vegas, May 29-June 1. Inspired by Coralie’s French-American heritage and flair, the new jewelry collection captures the spirit of the brand with modern, sleek designs that enable women and men to make a bold statement with everyday jewelry. The collection is also a perfect complement to the brand’s existing timepieces, which are currently available across the country. New watches will also be unveiled during JCK Las Vegas. 

“We are thrilled to bring our global jewelry collection to the U.S. for the first time,” said Coralie Charriol-Paul, Creative Director for CHARRIOL. “This is something completely different for CHARRIOL in the U.S. – we are offering new, fresh designs that are anchored in our exclusive twisted cable, which is the essence of the CHARRIOL brand. We want women and men in this country to enjoy what our international customers have prized for years: conceptual jewelry with a European heritage.”

Carrying on a family legacy launched in 1983 by her father and the company’s founder, Philippe Charriol, Coralie has spent the last 10 years designing more than 15 jewelry collections, including best-sellers such as “Crazy in Love,” “Forever Young,” “Kimono,” “Bamboo,” “Kucha,” “Pom Pom Pearl,” and “Circle of Love.” Her design philosophy is grounded in fashioning pieces that empower modern women to create their own signature style. The new jewelry collections being showcased at LUXURY during JCK Las Vegas include flagship lines “Forever Young Colors,” ”Banglemania,” and “Tango.”

Forever Young with Fresh, Playful Colors
Evoking a fairy-tale-meets-rock mood, these new colored bangles and rings are framed by rose gold or black in 10 rainbow shades that echo the urban-folk trends that continue to be featured on the runways. One of CHARRIOL’s most popular jewelry lines, the Forever Young bangles come in a narrow cuff style, and the fresh new shades add a dash of French chic to any outfit. Colored cables in pale blue, peach, pink, navy blue, violet, and pistachio green are teamed with rose gold for a fresh look that will enliven any outfit, year-round. Bracelets edged with black are a canvas for cables in fuchsia, cobalt blue, green, or charcoal in the brand’s most modern interpretation yet of its signature motif. Small CHARRIOL insignias in rose gold or black discs add a final sophisticated stamp to these stackable bracelets.
Stack It with Banglemania
The trend for bracelets, cuffs, and bangles is here to stay, and the bangle has become every woman’s go-to accessory. Add a personal touch to shirts, blazers, work-wear, and beautiful evening dresses with CHARRIOL’s stackable, collectable Banglemania designs by mixing and matching CHARRIOL’s Forever Young, Tango, and Celtic designs. Twists and cables, torques and cuffs, colored or monochrome, wrapped with wires or plainly elegant, adorned with stones or embellished with hearts and clasps, slim or broad – there are six variants to choose from in a spectrum of tones, including silver, bronze, black and gold.
Do the Tango
Entwined like two lovers on the dance floor, Tango takes its inspiration from the passionate Latin dance, represented by an intricate embrace of gold-plated cables, sparkling stones, and contemporary hammered silver wires. These handcrafted pieces are embellished with exquisite yellow, green, and red stones, which add flashes of color, like a flamboyant tango gown. Wear the ensemble of earrings, pendant necklace, ring and bracelet together for a glamorous look, or singly to add a dash of dramatic interest.
Complementing the new global jewelry collection, CHARRIOL will also showcase the brand’s newest timepieces, including designs by Visual Director Alexandre Charriol, at LUXURY during JCK Las Vegas.
St-Tropez™ 35mm is Out of This World
A special new style of CHARRIOL’s popular St-Tropez™ timepiece for women, this larger 35mm size offers a beautiful canvas with unique lunar calendar functionality, embellished with a rich mother of pearl dial, in tribute to the shimmering lunar mood. With a polished bezel engraved with the CHARRIOL lettering and the iconic cable bracelet strap and security clasp, this watch is available in steel, yellow, or pink-gold-plated PVD, offering a light, dreamy feel married with exquisite details and a mystical spirit. An extra special diamond variant is also available, with either full moon diamond bezel or glittering eclipse diamond design.
St-Tropez™ Style – Match it –  Clip it – Style it Your Way!

Inspired by Saint Tropez, one of the most glamorous resorts in the French Mediterranean, CHARRIOL’s iconic and much-loved St-Tropez™ watch with feminine chain-link bracelet and CHARRIOL detailing can now be infinitely customized thanks to a selection of 10 interchangeable bracelet chains and charming matching clips. Reflecting true personal style, the chains – in delicate rose gold or silvery-toned steel and contrasting materials including steel, mother of pearl, and precious stones – are adorned with playful motifs, from animals to hearts and angel wings, which can be changed so women can accessorize to suit the mood or moment.
Alexandre C Art Edition – Reveal Your True Self

Just like a unique artwork, the Night Masks Collection is a highly personal new range designed by international artist Alexandre Charriol himself. These new timepieces reinterpret CHARRIOL’s signature Alexandre C model and come in a limited series of just 500 pieces, each signed by Alexandre. Inspired by Alexandre’s collection of paintings, “Human Flow,” the watches reflect Alex’s own insights on how we interact in society, the “masks” we sometimes wear, and the liberating effect of the night. Free-form images of human faces are etched onto the dials and are direct replicas of Alex’s global exhibition. With four color-ways of steel, charcoal, bronze and blue, the watch is a unisex large size of 40mm.
Alexandre C – The Essence of CHARRIOL
In 1984, Philippe Charriol created and named a timepiece after his first son, Alexandre. Over the years, the design has evolved, and is now in its third incarnation. This stylish signature timepiece, with its endearing story, embodies the values of the CHARRIOL family: determination, style and success. Quintessentially CHARRIOL, the Alexandre C collection carries all the hallmarks of the brand: fine watchmaking expertise, attention to detail, and the iconic CHARRIOL cabled bracelet strap, or alternatively, our new and contemporary smooth, chain-link strap. Available with the CHARRIOL lettering around the bezel or a full diamond bezel pavé, as well as mother of pearl or guilloche dials, roman numerals, or diamond counters, the range offers a wide variety of styles, making these classic timepieces perfect for couples to wear and pair together.
Step up the pace with the Automatic Chrono GRAN CELTICA™ SuperSportS
The new men’s GRAN CELTICA™ SuperSportS timepiece, which introduces a more streamlined look for the brand, is a limited-edition release in an exclusive series of 30 pieces. CHARRIOL’s GRAN CELTICA™ SuperSportS is a high-performance, sporty and stylish watch with a strong allusion to motor sports and the brand’s deep ties with sports car racing. The brand’s founder, Philippe Charriol, is a keen racing car driver and the brand enjoys a long tradition of motorsports sponsorship. In keeping with the passionate inspiration behind this watch, the GRAN CELTICA takes on a sportier allure as the traditional cable strap is swapped out for a sleek, stainless steel chain-link bracelet.
CHARRIOL jewelry and timepieces will be showcased at LUXURY Booth #LUX607A during JCK Las Vegas.
