SOLANGE’S ROYAL JEWELS: Solange Azagury-Partridge will launch a collection of five noble rings today in an exclusive Aristocrats collection to mark the royal wedding festivities. Made of 18-carat guilloché, enameled gold and diamonds, the aptly named Empress, Duchess, Marquise, Princess and Countess rings — which Azagury-Partridge describes as “modern vintage” — will be available starting tomorrow at the designer’s New York and Los Angeles boutiques.

“I [wanted to] commemorate this moment in British history. There is only one royal wedding each generation,” the designer said. “The rings represent all the ranks of the aristocracy.”

Honorary celebrations will be held at both boutique locations — with Azagury-Partridge hosting the one in New York — where customers can try on the new collection while sipping high tea and viewing the Royal Wedding ceremony. Prices are available upon request and 10 percent of profits will be donated to Children’s Institute Inc. — Kristi Garced
