“We chose Small because she embodies what a Diagold Woman goes for – luxury, understated elegance and quality,” said the label’s Chief Operations Officer, Jennifer Ty, at Laude’s official launch.
“Her exceptional craftsmanship especially aligns with our brand’s values,” the executive added.
Diagold further believes that Laude, for all her quirks and cheekiness, is a personality that will stand the test of time, just like their jewelry.”
Laude’s launch means she is now in the company of previously named Diagold Women, namely Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental 2014 Kris Tiffany Janson, model and entrepreneur Georgina Wilson, and actress, TV host and media executive Charo Santos-Concio.
Of stories and big blings
She explained in the following interview that her love for jewelry isn’t only based on the material value of a particular piece but its unique story.
“I inherited my love for jewelry from my mother. That time, I learned how to appreciate what is nice; what’s a good diamond,” Laude recalled.
An enthusiast, the lady with a discriminating eye admitted she doesn’t have a limit when it comes to buying jewelry saying, “If it’s worth it, I’ll get it.” She also doesn’t think too much about when to wear them, “I just wear my jewelry when and where I want to.” When about her favorite pieces, Laude replied, “My favorite is the one that my husband and my Ate Alice [Eduardo] gave me. My husband gave me a ring with a big heart-shaped stone, and the big stud earrings came from my sister.”
Ty rounded up the event by announcing that Diagold will soon unveil a Small Laude jewelry collection.”The collection will be based on how you see Small Laude’s personality. It will be vibrant and fun, and we want to make the pieces affordable to her online fan base.”
With Laude in their roster now, Diagold is confident they will finally be able to communicate that they do not only cater to buyers of expensive jewelry.”
We have jewelry for daily wear, casual wear and even for teens, and that’s the kind of collection we will design for Small to share with her followers,” she ended.
