Irish milliner Philip Treacy is set to design an exclusive collection of engagement rings in conjunction with Voltaire Diamonds.

The diamond company will craft Treacy’s designs, which are expected to be launched in early 2013, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Each set of rings will have an individual identity and unique touch that only Treacy could give to a product so important and sacred.

‘We want the collection pieces to represent beautiful, highly desirable, emotional symbols of love, which are also exclusive, treasured possessions’, Philip Treacy said, as the project detail was finalised this week.

Seamus Fahy, CEO of Voltaire Diamonds, says “Bringing Philip Treacy’s design originality and remarkable vision to the creation of these rings will create an exceptionally special offering for brides-to-be, and provides a fresh and new creative option that will appeal to a discerning clientele”.

Philip Treacy is one of the world’s most visionary, unique and beloved milliners. With celebrity clientele money cannot buy, he has become a permanent fixture the celebrity styles of Katy Perry, Sarah Jessica Parker and various royals.
