Usually around this time of the year, its a war for love and the one with the most romantic gesture (or the most expensive gift!) usually wins. This Valentine’s Day we have a gift suggestion that is going to take your romance level to the maximum full of eternal love and grace that even if you want to woo the Queen of Hearts from Wonderland, you are all set (no one will behead you!).
Lalique, a brand synonymous with French Art Nouveau artisan, has partnered with music legend- Sir Elton John, to create a collection of unique crystal collectibles called “Music is Love”. Hold your breath and marvel over is intricate Elton John x Lalique harmony.
The seven-piece wonder collection is divided into a limited-edition series of three designs and four rare crystal sculptures to be auctioned off at the Elton John Academy Awards Viewing Party on February 28th. Lalique will donate 10 percent of the proceeds of the pieces sold in stores to the Elton John AIDS Foundation, and 100% of the proceeds from the auctioned items in February will benefit EJAF.
The glistening artifacts were showcased in a white cube gallery space on John Elton’s private estate outside London, against a backdrop of work by renowned artists like Louise Bourgeois, Antony Gormley, and Damien Hirst.
Lalique stands for craftsmanship, luxury and a strong tradition of devotion to the art of producing the highest quality. Lalique boutiques as of today are selling these precious possessions- a crystal angel and a red crystal heart priced for $1,800 each, and a clear crystal heart priced for $1,200.
February 14 is just around the corner, and with only 999 pieces for each creation, you might want to jump in and be the one who lands the lucky crystal and the lucky lover! These beautiful crystal angels are only second to getting actual cherubs to sing for you.
