The waves of the sea, Venus, the pearls, the shell of a shell that holds a secret: here are the latest creations by Alessio Boschi ♦ ︎
The Thalassa collection by Alessio Boschi takes the Greek name of the sea. And like the waves of the ocean reserves surprises, mysteries, wonders. Given that it is inspired by the sea, but that of an ancient fantasy, even the high jewelery of this collection offers exciting discoveries. On the other hand, this is the specialty of Alessio Boschi, who has established himself internationally as an interpreter of a sort of humanist goldsmitherie, of a Renaissance jewelry, and more with the typical virtuosity of the Baroque sculptors. In short, it has a complex and elaborate style that can easily be compared to that of the rare gurus of the world jewelry.
In 2017 the Thalassa collection has monopolized the attention with the great shark with the body composed of a gigantic keshi pearl. The following year Alessio Boschi added, next to extraordinary rings inspired by the inhabitants of the waves and brooches in the shape of fish, also a ring, Venus Heart, which is a tribute to both the sea and Venus painted by Botticelli and kept in the Uffizi Florence. The sea and the Renaissance, this time, are combined. Also in this case the irregularly shaped pearls are used to build the shell of a shell that hides a surprise: it opens to make room for a thin chain with small fish that transforms the pendant ring. While the shank of the ring is an irregular pavé reminiscent of a coral reef, the pearls on the shell are surrounded by a pavé of blue sapphires and white diamonds: the waves of the sea and the foam of the waves that is refracted. Do you still think that Alessio Boschi is a simple jeweler? Macché is a poet.
