The heavy glass doors of the Ivanka Trump Collection swing open, and
I find myself stepping into what can only be described as a luxurious
The jewelry is encased in the mirrored walls, much like glistening
artwork upon first glance.
Opulent little dressing chairs are arranged around tables, and delicate
chandeliers illuminate the space. Chocolates and champagne add to
the grandeur, as town cars and cabs speed by outside. The Ivanka
Trump boutique is very much an experience.
Working as Vice President of Development and Acquisitions at the
Trump Organization, Ivanka Trump understands luxury. She frequents
construction sites, evaluates deals, and is an integral part of bringing
the Trump Collection Brand to the global market. The Ivanka Trump
boutique is Ivanka's first endeavor apart from her family.
There is a very luxurious Old Hollywood style to the collection as a whole, but the pieces are absolutely modern, sharp and
chic. Reflections of a well-traveled woman are seen in the Pagoda style, with Asian inspired lines mixed with diamonds and
pearls. The Black and White Collection transcends trends with its simplicity of beads and streamlined silhouettes. The most
recent collection is the deco-inspired Rose Gold, which is made of bold and brilliant Rock Crystal.
The diamonds in the collection may gain the most awe, wtih some pieces costing in the hundreds of thousands. But it is the
rock crystal of the Rose Gold Collection that may be the most unique and more representative of Ivanka herself. In ancient
times, goddesses were said to have been drawn to rock crystals for the stones ability to bring out leadership, fearlessness,
and enhancement of their inner strength.
