Jewelry for the Summer: Roberto Bravo’s The Grand Bleu Collection ♦ ︎
Born in Italy, in Vicenza, as a small goldsmith company, Roberto Bravo years ago emigrated to Istanbul. But one of its reference markets is now Russian. In short, presented as an Italian brand, it is actually an international brand. And this mélange of cultures and styles is also reflected in its collections, which are affected by the goldsmith’s traditions flourishing in Veneto and the liveliness that resounds to the Gran Bazaar.
One of the battle horses for the summer, for example, is Le Grand Bleu, a collection dedicated to marine flora and fauna, as it is in the depths of the Bosphorus. Corals, precious stones and enamels, pearls and gold are played fairly well with silhouettes that leave no doubt and make up jewelry with a bouquet of assorted plants and fish in different compositions. A little as if they were caught with a net that surprised the colors of the sea. Seaweed and rain, curly and anemone form a water-free aquarium to be worn on your hand or put round your neck.
