The Jewelry Insider

May 10, 2011

Iconic diamond jeweler, Tiffany & Co., is serving up another celebrity jewelry collection. This time, it’s with 21-year-old tennis ace, Maria Sharapova. As if she didn’t already have enough sparkle.

Tiffany signed a two-year deal with the sporty Russian beauty for the next eight Grand Slam events, where she’ll wear a pair of earrings that go on sale immediately after she completes each tournament.

First up: The French Open from now through June 8th, where Sharapova has already worn a pair of $1,150 yellow gold Elsa Peretti Wave earrings – perfect for the three-time Grand Slam Champion since they don’t add a lot of weight.

“Maria Sharapova is a longtime friend of Tiffany and a champion on and off the court,” said Linda Buckley, vice president of worldwide public relations for Tiffany. “It gives us great pleasure to accent her on-court look with earrings that epitomize both the quality of her championship play and Tiffany’s reputation for design excellence.”

Tiffany has also accessorized Sharapova’s custom French Open tennis dress. The “Paris dress,’ by Nike is a 1920s-inspired ultra-light design that is finished with a Tiffany pearl button closure that fastens at the back.

“I am very excited about Tiffany for Maria Sharapova and to partner with my favorite jeweler,” Sharapova said in a statement. “Elsa Peretti’s earrings feel as beautiful as they look and I am thrilled to wear them at the French Open.”

Let’s hope her tennis game is as good as her fashion sense
