Nature, culture and architecture are the recurrent leitmotifs of Alta Gioielleria (high jewellery) presented by Dolce & Gabbana (DG), the glamorous fashion luxury Italian brand. Celebrating the famous Italian artistry in jewellery making, DG presents an eclectic mix of jewellery pieces with a strong narrative.
Take for instance, the Enamelled Rose necklace in white, pink and yellow gold fashioned with green tourmalines, rubies, emeralds and diamonds which is straight out of a fairy-tale book. Check out the small diamond-set cricket almost camouflaged in the natural setting. Some of the enamelled roses are contrasted with pave-set rubies and diamonds. The green enamelled leaves sit pretty on emerald-set delicate stems.
Reminiscent of the opulence of Baroque architecture in Sicily, the white and yellow gold necklace throws light on the goldsmithy skills of Italian artists. The volute motifs and floral decorations are forged by hand; in addition to engraving and twisted wire, the white gold parts of the necklace feature milgrain and diamond knurling techniques. The necklace is sprinkled with rose- and brilliant-cut diamonds that illuminate the gold.
The chromatic charisma of the traditional Sicilian cart is evoked in the necklace lined with aquamarines, multi-coloured zircons, tourmalines, emeralds, blue sapphires, peridots, rhodolite and spessartine garnets, accompanied by enamelled flowers. Brilliant-cut diamonds further embellish the composition, accentuating the uniqueness of this magnificent collier.
The earrings mimicking the wheels of the Sicilian cart are dressed with rubies, emeralds, amethysts and yellow, pink and blue sapphires on the outer part, which, further accentuated by the enamelled festoons in the middle part, converge towards the central rubellite tourmaline. The spokes are made of braided wire. The earrings are topped with floral and fruity motifs – emerald berries, diamonds, enamelled leaves remind one of the luxuriant Mediterranean environs.
The Engraved Vine collection is set with peridots, diamonds, pearls and decorated filigreed leaves, while the white gold earrings set with purple sapphires, diamonds and pearls reference the Sicilian Baroque architecture, echoing its sinuous lines, decorative opulence and complex, ellipse forms. These whimsy jewels bring a cool vibe to your style.
