The texture of crocodile skin in a new collection of silver jewelry signed Giovanni Raspini ♦ ︎
The animal terrifies anyone when the beast is in an African river or in the Florida swamps. But when it is transformed or, more precisely, forced to turn into bags, shoes and belts, the crocodile is also appreciated by humans. The scaly skin of the reptile, in fact, properly worked has always been considered a luxury in the fashion world. But also jewels.
In this case, however, true crocodiles can sleep quiet dreams, since their thick skin is only evoked. As in the case of the Coccodrillo collection by Giovanni Raspini, which refers to one of the classic themes of the brand, offering a luminous jewel, made in electroforming. The textures of the crocodile skin integrate with the simple elegance of the non-burnished tubular elements, giving life to a play of reflections. The collection is offered in two versions, in silver and gilded silver, and includes three necklaces, three bracelets, six earrings and two rings. Prices: a Crocodile ring costs from 125 (mini version) to 170 euros. The Crocodile light necklace 580 euros, earrings 125 or 160 euros. Lavinia Andorno
