Toni + Chloë Create Fashionable Antique Jewelry
By Brandy Billinghurst
When Old World elegance meets contemporary chic, in walks Toni + Chloë – a mother-daughter design duo who make the case that great style is in fact hereditary. Toni + Chloë stem from the prominent Goutal family, which includes the late perfumer Annick Goutal and Bonpoint and Merci founder Marie-France Cohen. Bound together not only by blood, but by their love of travel and awe-inspiring antiquities, these two create truly mesmerizing celestial pieces. Each piece in their collection is one-of-a-kind, and tells a story from the Victorian Period, all while creating its own modern love story.
Toni + Chloë was created after Chloë discovered a Victorian-era diamond crescent brooch at an antique store while on a trip to London. Back home in New York, she wore it as a pendant, transforming it into a hip version of the timeless piece, stunning passersby and generating countless inquiries. The forward-thinking duo has mastered how to bridge old and new. Everything the Goutals create exclusively uses antique crescents, stars, and other celestial gems, transforming them into pendants suspended from antique chains.
You will find this dynamic duo using pieces of royal crowns and diamond adorned brooches, all while creating a wearable collection for today’s woman. Notable fans of the collection include Gigi Hadid, Christie Brinkley, Camila Alves, Mariska Hargitay, Zac Posen, and Ashley Graham.
These one of a kind jewels grace magazine covers which include Vogue, People, The Cut, and Entertainment Weekly and have been featured in W, Departures, Forbes, Robb Report, and Town & Country. They have also been seen on celebrity favorite Priyanka Chopra during her star-studded wedding weekend. One look at the collection and it is easy to see why Toni + Chloë have carved out their place in the industry and will continue to make a lasting impression. These designers remain ahead of the curve and give us a fresh taste of glam that once was.
