Attitude is Everything! This is the motto behind young jewellery line Christian Rex, which recently launched in lavish style at Storys in Toronto.
The black tie affair proved that this line appeals to both rock (see Skid Row’s Sebastian Bach) and fashion (Canadian supermodel Stacey McKenzie). Christian Rex jewellery began just five years ago, but has already amassed a significant celebrity following, including Eva Longoria, Carmen Elecrta and Princess Stephanie.
It sprung to life five years ago when designer Peter Christian Rex saw a hole in the accessories market for cross-functional masculine jewellery. The line has grown to include adornments for women, though frankly there are some fantastic pieces that could easily swing both ways.
Many pieces in the hand-crafted collection feature the signature pewter skulls (both hypoallergenic and nickel free) – a nod to its roots in rock and roll culture. You’ll also find Trillium charms, bright Swarovski crystals, and black onyx beads (a stone that contains health benefits and is known to boost energy and strength levels).
