The Chinese dragon becomes a necklace in gold and baroque pearls in the imagination of Rosario Autore ♦ ︎
At the Couture Design Awards 2018 it won a piece of Italy, represented by Rosario Autore. He is an Italian of origin, but lives from years in Australia and specializes in pearls: he cultivates them, sells them, but he also uses them to make jewels of all kinds, from classic necklaces with a string of pearls, to complex jewels, where the spherical daughters of the sea have a prominent place. To be precise, however, we must add that the pearls used by Autore are not always perfectly round. On the contrary, the Italian-Australian jeweler uses baroque pearls for high-end pieces. Around their irregular shape creates the jewel. A model used, for example, in the Oceania collection, where baroque pearls are transformed into fish from tropical seas.
In Las Vegas, however, Autore won the Best in Pearls award with a necklace from South Sea pearls inspired by a completely different subject: a Chinese dragon. The necklace, in fact, is part of a line of jewelry dedicated to the icons of the great Asian country, starting with the dragon. Also in this case are used baroque pearls, which make up the body of the mythical animal, along with white gold and diamonds. Lavinia Andorno
