Time To Give Etienne Perret A Shot To Design A Colored Diamond Victoria Secret Fantasy Bra

Famous, amongst so many other wonderful reasons, for their extravagant annual tradition of designing an over-the-top Fantasy Bra, Victoria's Secret is a name that forever basks in the spotlight of consumer media. Every year we watch, in awe, for the unveiling of the V.S. Fantasy bra, what stunning jewels adorn it, and what outrageously wealthy woman it might end up enveloping.

But is there something deeper that the Fantasy bra represents, some type of knowledge we can glean from this flamboyant display of wealth? If anything it may be a clue as to the economic trends America is facing.

The budget for Victoria's Secret annual Fantasy Bra has been dwindling for several years now. Apparently responding to economic trends, this year's bra comes in at just $2 million retail, falling well short of the $3 million price tag in garnered last year, never mind the $6.5 V.S. dared to ask in 2006! 

Sadly, not only did this year's V.S. Fantasy Bra see the lowest sale value to date, but designers were forced to cut out diamonds of color all together, and could only afford to bedazzle their prized negligee with white diamonds, sapphires and topaz.

What a shame...If V.S. gave Etienne Perret the chance with that budget, you can bet your bottom dollar, he would electrify the Fantasy Bra with drop dead gorgeous diamonds in an exquisite variety of vivid colors. It is an absolute blessing of nature and technology to see all of the options that working with beautiful color enhanced natural diamonds has given us--for Etienne Perret, complete creative freedom comes in any color of the rainbow!

Etienne often uses natural color and white diamonds in his designs especially in the yellow, pink and brown ranges in his designs. However, he has found his niche creating the highest quality bridal jewelry using color enhanced natural diamonds. The use of color enhanced natural diamonds opens many doors, allowing Etienne to create beautiful custom designed rings, with easily sourced and exactly matching color diamonds, in nearly any color of the rainbow, at much more affordable prices.

Etienne's Gem Ceramic collection has recently been covered by luxury websites such as Robb Report, and worn by Toni Collette, star of United States of Tara, at the 2010 Emmy's. 

Contact Etienne and work with the Artist directly to custom design the colored diamond jewelry of your dreams at refreshingly affordable price!
