MORRISTOWN, NJ--(Marketwire - Sep 27, 2012) - Champenois & Co. today announced the debut of Champenois for Brilliante® -- its first branded jewelry collection to premiere in more than 60 years -- airing on multichannel electronic retailer ShopNBC (www.shopnbc.com) on Thursday, Oct. 4. The latest addition to ShopNBC's popular simulated diamond line, Champenois for Brilliante® will feature an exquisite 15-piece collection inspired by its 125-year old design archive -- representing a historic milestone for the jewelry family that began creating luxury pieces for Paris and New York's elite in the mid-19th century.
"My father turned off the lights at Champenois & Co. for what he thought would be the last time in 1950," said Ed Champenois, founder of Champenois & Co. "He'd be thrilled to see the lights -- and cameras -- turn back on to introduce our brand-new exclusive collection to ShopNBC viewers this fall."
Bringing lost luxury back to the discerning jewelry buyer, the Champenois collection will debut during ShopNBC's Day of Brilliance™ event with a one-hour show. Exclusive to ShopNBC, Champenois for Brilliante® includes white and fancy-colored AAA quality Brilliante® simulated diamonds set in pure sterling silver. Developed using sketches from original Champenois jewelry designs, each iconic ring, pendant and bracelet within the collection features delicately textured details and a sought-after vintage appeal.
