Since General Motors introduced the V-Series branding for certain Cadillac models in the early 2000s, it has become synonymous with high performance and luxury. Now, you can celebrate the holidays and two decades of V-Series Cadillacs with this 20th anniversary ornament.
Designed by Crash Jewelry and available for $150, this special ornament is a one-of-a-kind keepsake crafted from Blackwing steel and finished in exclusive Chartreuse Metallic. The exterior spiral piece is engraved with Cadillac wordmark, while the interior spiral piece is etched with the Caddy performance pattern.
It’s worth noting that only 50 units will be made, and are quickly being spoken for. If you find yourself interested, be sure to check out this 20th anniversary ornament here.
“As a jewelry artist and metalsmith, Christi Schimpke was always drawn to colors, textures and unorthodox materials,” a statement read. “When she moved her jewelry studio into her husband’s upscale collision repair facility, she began working with the beautifully colored luxury car metal. Utilizing proprietary methods, she up-cycles the cast-off fenders, doors, and hoods into wearable art. Every item retains the original factory paint and provenance. Crash Jewelry is the ultimate gift for car enthusiasts everywhere.”
As a reminder, the 2023 calendar year marks the 20th anniversary of the V-Series sub-brand, hence the naming of the aforementioned ornament. In fact, the first vehicle to bear the V-Series moniker was the 2004 Cadillac CTS-V. Throughout this year, General Motors has introduced various new products and features to celebrate the V-Series sub-brand. The celebration will end at Sebring in March 2024, which will mark 20 years since the CTS-V’s first win on track.
“Nearly 20 years ago, Cadillac made a bold move with V-Series that continues to resonate,” former Cadillac Global Vice President Rory Harvey stated earlier this year. “From the racetrack to the road, V-Series has transformed Cadillac and helped redefine performance luxury for thousands of enthusiasts. Over the next 12 months we will celebrate V-Series with a number of significant moments.”
