The Sydney jewel that's about to become a Melbourne gem
One of the jewels in Sydney’s crown is set to also become a Melbourne gem with the opening of the first Cerrone boutique south of the border.
Cerrone boasts a star-studded clientele including Australians Jennifer Hawkins, Kyly Clarke, Lara Bingle and Nicole Trunfio, and has also helped dress international stars including Serena Williams, Rihanna, Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand, Janet Jackson and Claudia Schiffer.
The family-owned business will open in Melbourne CBD’s new St Collins Lane development in Collins Street, and co-owners Nicola and Carmela Cerrone - who also design the company’s products - say they are looking forward to joining Melbourne’s luxury community.
"We’re excited to share many of life’s precious moments for years to come with our local clients, from engagements to anniversaries and all occasions in between,” says Nicola Cerrone.
“When working with clients, I love to create unique pieces that reflect their personal style, beauty and success, seeing what a client contributes to the design and being able to execute this for them.”
At the launch event on Thursday night, guests will be invited to try on bespoke pieces including the Elizabethan necklace worn by Sarah Murdoch featuring 559 brilliant cut diamonds set in white gold, and the 2016 Miss Universe Australia-winning crown featuring a 40-carat pear-shape pink kunzite stone valued at $220,000.
