That Rihanna reign, really just won’t let up. Already boasting collaborative projects with Dior, Puma, Stance Socks and more, the singer and bonafide designer, has linked up with Chopard for a collection of pieces to debut in May.

During Cannes Film Festival this year, expect to see Rihanna out and about. As the host of some of the most fashion forward red carpets of the circuit, the event is a big market for the fashion industry. Rihanna will have her moment in that spotlight when she hosts an official unveiling of her limited-edition, nine piece fine jewelry collection for Chopard — she will also be there for the premiere of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets which she stars in.

Chopard released the news on its Instagram on Thursday.

The brand, which tapped its creative director Caroline Scheufele to design the range in concert with Rih Rih, teed up the announcement on Instagram posting a few throwback photos of the star in their diamonds for a magazine shoot. Now comes this new collection which is available for pre-order, and includes a standout diamond earclip to make luxury shoppers truly “shine bright like a diamond,” while featuring designs inspired by Fenty’s native Barbados.

If you’re wondering how the pieces might look on the red carpet, you’ve likely already seen them. Rihanna herself wore a pair of chandelier earrings from the line to the Grammy’s. If she couldn’t wait until May to wear them, it seems like the name of the collection is true: Rihanna Loves Chopard.

Of the other options from the collection, prices range from $1,460 for a rose gold ring to $11,140 for a rose gold, diamond and “jungle green” ceramic sautoir necklace. Both of these pieces, as well as a majority of the line, feature the star’s take on the brand’s Ice Cube pieces.

When you think about it, the partnership puts Rihanna in almost every major fashion market. She’s released high-end accessories with Dior by way of shades and she has also done accessories on the low end via her work as the contributing creative director of Stance Socks. Her work with Manolo Blahnik, which spans two collections, takes care of footwear on the high end while her sneakers with Puma settle that market’s low end. But of course, her entire FENTY line by Puma spans the apparel market. Add in this latest fine jewelry project and her upcoming beauty brand launch and she’s running the board at every price point.
