Tennis star to receive champagne diamond bracelet

Current world number eight and former world number one tennis player Caroline Wozniacki will soon be making her first trip to New Zealand to compete in the ASB Classic tournament and competition won’t be the only thing awaiting her.

New Zealand master jewellers Naveya & Sloane have partnered with Moet & Chandon to create a beautiful welcome gift for Wozniacki (face of Adidas by Stella McCartney) – a timeless 5-carat champagne diamond bracelet valued at $15,000.

Wozniacki’s bracelet is one of two bespoke pieces to be created. The other will be on display at the Moet & Chandon Champagne Lounge during the NZ Festival of Tennis from January 5 to 17.

The public will have the opportunity to win the second $15,000 champagne diamond bracelet every time they purchase a flute of Moet & Chandon.

The bracelets feature 42 champagne diamonds which have been individually hand selected for their colour and beauty.

“I wanted to design a legendary piece that has the perfect balance between old world glamour and everyday luxury,” says Rachel Sloane of Naveya & Sloane.

The bespoke pieces also mark the launch of Naveya & Sloane’s new Tennis Bracelet collection, which will launch early 2015.
