February 3, 2022—Just a few days ago Rihanna donated $15-million to 18 climate justice groups. I know that’s probably not how you were expecting this story to start, but I kept thinking about it looking at the beautiful images by Diggzy of A$AP Rocky with the pregnant star draped in joyful jewels and the pink vintage Chanel coat. Rihanna isn’t just planning her future. She is trying to make it brighter for many people.
Getting into the styling details of the image, the jewelry reveals the photographs are personal beyond the obvious. Rihanna wore several pieces from her own collection. There is a mix of costume and precious. All of the items are vintage.
Read on to find out more about each.
Vintage Diamond Ring From Briony Raymond
The diamond ring on Riri’s finger in her pregnancy announcement photos was familiar to those of us following her fashionable appearances lately.
Customized Rolex King Midas
Rihanna is a watch lover and often wears a timepiece. The watch she has on in the pregnancy photo is one she has worn repeatedly. It’s a Rolex King Midas.
Thai jeweler Patcharavipa Bodiratnangkura customized the 18K gold vintage Rolex. In other words it is not something you will find at Rolex or anywhere besides Patcharavipa.
Vintage Christian Lacroix Necklace
The biggest necklace covering Rihanna’s belly is apparently another piece in her permanent collection or at least that of her stylist Jahleel Weaver.
Long Chanel Necklace
The long Chanel necklace Rihanna paired with the Lacroix comes from the beloved New York vintage emporium Camilla Dietz Bergeron.
I haven’t been able to track down where Ri’s Chanel belt came from but it looks vintage. The source of the delightful pink vintage Chanel coat is still a mystery to me at the moment as well. Would it be old-fashion to suggest Rihanna was signaling the child is a girl? Probably. Anyway, we will know more soon enough.
