The Chinese Zodiac is made up of a 12 year cycle of animals, and 2016 honors the ninth element of that cycle as the year of the Monkey. If you were born in 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004 or 2016 you are a monkey, and referred to by the Chinese as a “Monkey Person”. Monkey people are inherently creative, curious and clever.
In honor of 2016 and the monkey, Roberto Coin has designed, as part of his Animalier collection, a collection of monkeys comprised of 18K rose gold with black and brown diamonds. It was not designed exclusively for “monkey people” but for anyone who exudes innovation, curiosity, or playfulness. According to the designer himself, the collection represents “the perfect jewels for the woman who has self-irony and humor.”
Under the Chinese Zodiac, this year also happens to be governed by the element of fire. As the year of the Fire or Red Monkey, the collection is perfectly actualized in the use of rose gold in the jeweled monkey pieces. This element of fire adds to the character’s ambition and adventure as well. In honor of 2016, come let Roberto Coin take you on a mischievous adventure with his monkeys and to all those monkey people: Happy New Year!
Famous Monkeys : Diana Ross, Ashley Judd, Elizabeth Taylor, Ryan Gosling, Johnny Cash, George Lucas, Joan Crawford, Jennifer Aniston, Rod Stewart, Marc Anthony, Gisele Bündchen and Jerry Hall.
