A VicenzaOro September, the Parisian brand has introduced a new piece in the style that made her famous. It’s the Galapagos collection, with ring and necklace, which can be turned into a brooch. It is made of white gold, 183 diamonds, peridot two, six green tourmalines, emeralds, 52 chalcedony, moonstone, 14 pearls. Not bad for a single jewel. The turtle is an animal there is from the Thirties in the bestiary of the House. Sometimes, the turtle shell is made of an opal, other times with a paved surfaces. The striking feature of the giant tortoise shell necklace Galapagos is transparency and color, with shades of mint green water, evoking the mythical coasts of the islands off Ecuador. Also the ring has tourmaline and peridot, carved to mimic the shape of the animal, giving volume to a delicate design. The eyes of the turtle are sparkling emeralds. Thanks to an ingenious system, the spindle can be worn on the moon stone center, as if the same turtle hatching a precious egg. The body of the ring, set with diamonds, reminiscent of coral swaying at the mercy of the waves.
