Carnival President Christine Duffy Picks Her Favorite Pieces to Launch Personalized Effy Jewelry Collection Aboard Carnival Celebration. Special “Return to Sea” Collection Includes 23 Pieces Inspired by Love for the Ocean
Carnival Cruise Line President Christine Duffy knows her jewelry, and has worked with the designers at retail partner Effy Jewelry to curate a special collection of fine pieces that will be offered aboard the beautiful new Carnival Celebration starting this November.
The multi-faceted “Return to Sea” collection features an initial 23 pieces that reflect a love for the ocean and all that comes with it. The line includes rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces that are as much art as they are jewelry.
Designs are inspired by the sea’s ever-changing waves, shells found at shore and the golden-hour glow that cascades over the ocean at sunset, with pieces made from glowing gold, glittery diamonds and pure pearls that convey movement and natural beauty. Other vibrant and detailed turquoise and gold pieces are inspired by the clear waters of the Caribbean and offer a fresh and clean feel. And dark blue and white gold pieces are inspired by the shadows of the sea that can best be experienced while sailing on a cruise ship and exude elegance and depth. The pieces will all make wearers feel a connection to the sea and the experiences one has when sailing.
“So many Carnival guests return from a cruise with a purchase from our Effy Jewelry shops that signify a special remembrance of their vacation with us,” said Duffy. “With this unique collection, our guests sailing on Carnival Celebration will be able to choose from beautiful pieces that really connect to this amazing ship and the destinations she will visit. I’ll be wearing some of my favorite items at the naming ceremony next month, as will my daughter who helped me curate the collection, and Godmother Cassidy Gifford and her mother Kathie Lee Gifford.”
“It has been such a pleasure working with Christine to curate this one-of-a-kind collection,” said Effy Hematian, CEO of Effy Jewelry. “We are grateful to Carnival’s guests for their ongoing support of the Effy brand, and we look forward to continuing to deliver them only the best fine jewelry options at sea.”
The Return to Sea collection will debut on Carnival Celebration when the ship begins sailing late this month and will be rolled out to other ships across the fleet in the following months. Additional subcollections under the Return to Sea umbrella will be revealed in phases following the launch, as well.
In line with the special collection announcement, Carnival also revealed that Effy Jewelry is now rolling out to the remainder of its fleet by this December and will serve as the line’s exclusive fine jewelry provider.
Carnival Celebration will have an array of additional retail offerings for every type of cruiser – and shopper – with the stores guests know and love in even larger spaces and new products and designs spread throughout the ship’s six zones: The Gateway, 820 Biscayne, Celebration Central, The Ultimate Playground, Summer Landing and Lido.
Carnival Celebration will make her North American debut from the redesigned state-of-the-art Terminal F at Port Miami on Nov. 21.
