Leandra Medine and Charles de Viel Castel, the designer of CVC Stones, have collaborated to create an exclusive jewelry collection featuring charms, necklaces, and bracelets. This is Leandra’s first fine jewelry collaboration, and she brings her own twist to CVC Stone’s signature of using pebbles sourced from beaches around the world. “Charles was really open to all of my ideas, like making the pebbles smaller, adding charm hooks, and a lot of different colorful jewels,” says Leandra. As for her favorite? “I love the stones that feature a combination of turquoise and coral.”
All of the pieces in the collection are one-of-a-kind and the charms can be worn alone or combined for a unique, customized look. Charles notes that the creative process was a true collaborative effort. “We both designed some of the pieces, but the playfulness and freshness Leandra brought was great and really fun,” he says.
In celebration of the launch, we hosted a breakfast at Freds Downtown. Guests in attendance, including Daniella Vitale, Selby Drummond, and Amy Astley, enjoyed fresh juices and Freds bites while taking in the beautiful jewelry. The CVC Stones x Leandra Medine Collection is available at our Barneys New York Madison, Downtown, and Beverly Hills locations and is now available for purchase online.
