VANITAS NECKLACE - from the collection Metalphysic.
Made in gold plated silver, aventurine drops and pearls.
“METALPHYSIC” celebrates the miraculous architecture in Rome's churches and palaces from antiquity and the modern day, blending these two radically different eras. The neoclassicism of Canova and Piranesi combined with the intriguing metaphysics of Giorgio De Chirico. The collection prominently features marble, like those seen throughout the city of Rome, in a spectrum of colors such as Verona red, Jet black, Carrara white. Ancient artisanal goldsmith techniques are utilized in the detailing of the micro-mosaics. The jewels integrate seemingly incongruous pairings such as columns supporting pearls and pierced eyes. Goethe wrote in his Travels in Italy that “whoever looks at these jewels can say: everything is as it was described to me but at the same time everything is new.” This notion of timelessness and surprise is an inspiration to the new collection.
