Sharapova to wear Tiffany at Wimbledon
Dubai, June 14, 2010
Tennis champion Maria Sharapova will wear earrings by celebrated Tiffany designer Elsa Peretti at the upcoming Wimbledon championships.
The 2010 Wimbledon Championships will start on June 21 and run until July 4 at the All England Lawn Tennis Club.
The three-time Grand Slam winner also wore Elsa Peretti earrings at the French Open which ended recently at the Roland Garros Stadium in Paris.
The earrings selected for Wimbledon are a sterling silver design from Elsa Peretti’s Diamonds by the Yard collection. Introduced in 1974, the collection features modern jewellery design, with fine chains and bezel-set stones.
“Wearing Diamonds by the Yard on the court is a perfect example of how Elsa Peretti made diamonds fashionable anytime and anywhere,” said Sharapova.
“It’s a pleasure to wear her signature of elegant simplicity.”
Pegah Goldooz, general manager of Tiffany in the Middle East, said: “Sharapova’s association with Tiffany shows the trust of top global celebrities for the brand.”
“She has displayed a dynamic sense of style on and off the court thus it is only natural for her to support Elsa Peretti earrings that have instantly put the quality of her game and Tiffany's reputation as an iconic jewellery house in the spotlight,” Goldooz added.
The partnership between Sharapova and Tiffany covers the four Grand Slam events: the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open.
During each event, the tennis champion wears earrings from Tiffany for Maria Sharapova, a select group of earrings that are available at all Tiffany boutiques in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, a statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
