Le Vıan Chocolate Dıamonds announces GODIVA x Le Vıan collaboration for Valentıne’s Day with KAY Jewelers
Le Vian and GODIVA, masters of luxury Chocolate Diamonds and premium chocolate, respectively, are thrilled to announce a multi-year collaboration between their two iconic brands, which will be premiering exclusively at KAY Jewelers. This partnership is set to captivate chocolate lovers and jewelry aficionados everywhere. The first of many GODIVA x Le Vian collections – a feast for the eyes as much as for the palate – is being premiered exclusively in KAY stores across the United States and on KAY.com just in time for Valentine’s Day 2022.
Chocolate and jewelry are two of the most sought-after expressions of love for Valentine’s Day, making the timely launch of the GODIVA x Le Vian collaboration the perfect invitation to indulge in the finer things in life. Three stunning Le Vian Chocolate Diamonds special edition necklaces take the sparkling form of some of GODIVA’s most beloved chocolate treats. Le Vian has captured GODIVA’s classic dark chocolate Ganache Heart with a pendant of the same name, with Chocolate Diamonds on a 14K Honey Gold™ chain, incorporating diamonds weighing three eighths of a carat. The collection’s Strawberry and Chocolate Heart is a tribute to GODIVA’s Strawberry Crème Tarte Truffle and uses striking passion rubies as well as Chocolate Diamonds and white diamonds totalling half a carat in weight on a 14K Strawberry Gold® chain. The third piece of this special collection, the Truffle Pendant, is inspired by GODIVA’s Milk Chocolate Truffle and incorporates a total of half a carat of Chocolate Diamonds and Nude Diamonds™ with a 14K Honey Gold chain.
“For 2022, Le Vian forecasted Chocolate Diamonds as the obsession of the year. The GODIVA x Le Vian collaboration is our first creative interpretation of the power, pleasure and wonder of chocolate. This collection of delectable Chocolate Diamond jewels, inspired by GODIVA’s exquisite premium chocolates, were made with love to be savored by Valentines this year,” says Le Vian chief executive officer, Eddie LeVian.
“We are thrilled to partner with Le Vian as part of our strategy to open more people’s eyes to the wonder of GODIVA,” says Nurtac Ziyal Afridi, GODIVA’s global chief executive officer. “With Le Vian being the owner and leader in Chocolate Diamonds, and GODIVA being the ‘diamond of chocolate’, this is a perfect collaboration. Both our iconic brands have core equities in artistry and innovation, as well as a mastery of their craft. The desirability and reputation that both brands have established with consumers certainly makes for an incredibly compelling offering.”
“The Le Vian collection at KAY is a customer favorite with new meaningful launches every year. The GODIVA x Le Vian partnership is a natural fit, who wouldn’t want delicious premium chocolate with beautiful jewelry to match?” states Tonia Zehrer, Senior Vice President and Chief Merchandising Officer at Signet Jewelers, parent company of KAY. “As we continue to see our customers celebrate those closest to them, we are thrilled to exclusively premiere these unique and exclusive design packages to help them say, ‘I love you.’”
The GODIVA x Le Vian collection advertising campaign, titled “The Finer Things,” features masterful, mouth-watering photography designed to transport viewers to revel in a lavish chocolate banquet. The collection also includes a limited number of parures — jewelry pieces with complementary ring sets created especially for the red carpet.
