The Bella collection by Giovanni Ferraris, beautiful like the colors of nature and the dew drops ♦ ︎
What is beauty? The question, at first glance, seems silly. But it is not. First of all beauty is the result of a set of aspects, quality, parameters. Furthermore, it can vary over time from one culture to another. There are, however, some canons of beauty that seem immutable or, at least, are recurring over the centuries and common to different cultures. One of these beauty models is linked to nature and colors. Difficult to find cultures or people who do not find the nuances of a landscape fascinating. Or, as far as jewelery is concerned, the colors of precious stones.
Combine the two concepts: jewelery and aesthetic sense, and here is the Bella collection by Giovanni Ferraris, seen at Baselworld 2018. The Bella collection is, in fact, beautiful. Play on what are the basic colors of jewelry, namely those of sapphires, rubies and emeralds. Blue, red, green. To which are added the white of the diamonds and the shades of gold, white or pink. Even the shape of the jewels recalls that of nature, with drops that form long spikes or small ovals scattered like wildflowers. Note the detail of the drop-shaped setting in burnished gold.
