Leading Italian jewelry designer, Roberto Coin, will open his first Orange County boutique and only seventh location in the United States at Fashion Island in mid-October. The boutique will be opened in partnership with the well-known local family-run Newport institution at Fashion Island, Traditional Jewelers.
The boutique’s interior features white travertine marble, deep, rich woods, burnished mirrors and a separate “Roberto Coin Cento Collection” Diamond Corner, which is a brand new concept specific to this boutique. Previously, the boutiques have featured rich mahogany woods complimented by green detailing, brown carpeting and brown ceilings, signature to Roberto Coin and like that of the other boutique locations around the world including Venice, Rome, Dubai, Atlanta and Charleston. The new concept follows that from the recent global boutique openings in Moscow and Prague.
Opening in the heart of Orange County, the Roberto Coin for Traditional Jewelers boutique at Fashion Island is 1,100 square feet and a premiere coastal location for the innovative designs of Roberto Coin. The new boutique is opening in collaboration with Traditional Jewelers, a long-standing Orange County jewelry destination, and is adjacent to Traditional Jewelers in Fashion Island’s Pacific Court. This unique partnership continues to bridge the relationship with the brand’s independent retail partners. The boutique will feature some of the iconic collections from Robert Coin such as Appassionata, Ipanema, Mauresque, CapriPlus, and the Roberto Coin Cento Collection, a unique 100 facet cut, almost double the traditional 57-facet cut diamonds.
“We are excited about our continued expansion of our brand with another boutique opening,” says Peter Webster, Co-Owner/ President of Roberto Coin inc. “The success and encouraging consumer response from our other boutiques has inspired us to launch in locations that we find perfect to expand our name. Collaborating with some of the most well-respected local retail partners, such as Traditional Jewelers, broadens our relationships with the local community and future Roberto Coin customers in addition to our already loyal clientele.”
"Roberto Coin and Traditional Jewelers have enjoyed a successful partnership for almost 20 years,” says Erik Halfacre, President of Traditional Jewelers. “We feel that the opportunity of the boutique partnership will only further cement this strong and unique partnership. We also look forward to offering the full array of Roberto Coin to our existing and potentially new clients."
