Pomellato has unveiled its third Gioia high jewellery collection “A Walk in Nature, from Sunrise to Darkness.”
Inspired by the beauty of nature the new collection portrays an imaginary landscape capturing the beauty of light and nature from day to night and highlighting the Italian jeweller’s free-spirited style.
The collection of 33 pieces captures the light, moods and sensations of nature in seven different these, expressed by the unique craftsmanship of the jeweller.
Vincenzo Castaldo, Creative Director of Pomellato discusses his creative inspiration: “During this walk in the natural world, the language revolves around the feeling and sensations of the journey such as the texture of a flower petal, the nuances of a stormy sky or the beauty of a fiery sunset. We wanted La Gioia to generate emotions that blossom on the skin through organic jewellery that follows the movement of the body, adorning it with gold, stones, colours and light. Nature evolves throughout the day capturing its ever-changing facets, creating a dynamic dialogue in tune with our deeply rooted identity and iconic Pomellato style.”
Highlight pieces of the collection include two spectacular rivière-style necklaces from the Secrets of the Rising Sun chapter. These two creations feature baroque-shaped gemstones that tumble over the skin like morning’s first rays of sun over water. Five watery blue aquamarines weighing over 150 carats adorn the first necklace, while the second features over 100 carats of opalescent, azure-hued moonstones, complemented by a blue sapphire pavé. In both necklaces, the central gems are suspended from an Iconica chain.
From the Shades of the Rainbow chapter of the collection a flexible cuff bracelet is set with more the 2,500 coloured gemstones. The dazzling creation is composed of domed links in rose gold, set with 24 different shades of gems. This sparkling piece highlights the brand’s passion for colour.
The Midday Gold chapter features three Princess-style necklaces that capture the power of daylight. By mixing the geometry of gold oblong links with the suppleness of white gold gourmette links paved with immaculate diamonds, the jeweller creates a vivid contrast of materials reinforced by the presence of a bright, luminous centre stone. The gemstones are suspended from a diamond-set curb chain joining rose gold cable links. Each gemstone is intricately facetted and generous in volume and surrounded by white diamonds for a high-voltage look. The first necklace is set with an unusual lagoon-green 17.9-carat Paraiba tourmaline, while the second features an 18.55-carat soft pink morganite reminiscent of the petals of a peony. The third version showcases a 15.65-carat sea blue aquamarine.
And finally, in the Discoveries in the Darkness chapter, the play of light and dark creates dramatic contrasts in a choker and a pair of long chain earrings. The gourmette chain features asymmetrically alternating links entirely set with a white and black diamond pavé composed of more than 1,400 stones. The matching earrings are set with 960 diamonds.
