Fendi unveiled its first high jewellery collection as part of the Fendi Couture Autumn/Winter 2022 runway show.
Designed by Delfina Delettrez Fendi, Artistic Director of Jewellery the collection is an ode to the House’s Roman heritage and a pure expression of light and movement. Created using the finest white and yellow diamonds the of precious pavé and baguette stones mirror the inverted FF monogram designed by Karl Lagerfeld in 1965.
The initial collection consists of a necklace, earrings and cocktail ring, all featuring a cascading geometric assemblage of stones. The addition of vivid yellow diamonds creates a spectacular play of colour and light. The Latin word “flavus” is an ancient Roman signification for yellow, or blond, referencing the chosen colours of the diamonds.
The Flavus Necklace is a symmetrical cascade in white and yellow gold with a shower of articulated stems of alternating lengths suspended on a double strand of diamond solitaires. Comprising over 1,000 stones, a large exceptional fancy vivid yellow emerald cut diamond at its heart is framed at opposing corners by the inverted FF monogram detailed in natural yellow diamond baguettes. Mirroring the movement of a Roman fountain this necklace highlights exquisite craftsmanship combined with Delfina Delettrez Fendi’s fascination with the relationship between kinetic forms and the human body.
The Flavus earrings replicate the same undulating flow, in two mirrored cascades that each reflects the same precious expression of the FF monogram in yellow diamond baguettes around a central fancy vivid yellow emerald cut diamond. The Flavus ring reprises this device in a single bold 360° gesture.
Rooted in Roman mythology, the FENDI Flavus parure, is the first preview of High Jewellery from the House, and melds the mechanical and the organic with a dose of sculptural, mid-century glamour from the Cinecittà.
