Bracelets, necklaces, rings and earrings in the shape of bamboo in the collection of Giovanni Raspini ♦ ︎
Bamboo, in nature, includes about 650 genera and 9,700 species. In short, it is one of the most common plants, especially in Asia. It is also one of the most used in the world, and thanks to its robustness this plant has been defined as vegetable steel, for its extraordinary mechanical resistance to compression and traction. Bridges, houses and even bicycles were built with bamboo. But, of course, a bamboo jewel is not exactly what every woman wants, even if there are bracelets and necklaces composed thanks to this ductile vegetal. But if the bamboo turns into silver, the liking increases.
This is exactly what happened with the Bambù collection by Giovanni Raspini, which includes a bracelet with the shape of bamboo in silver fusion, but also a necklace and earrings. The jewels are created by mixing the bamboo texture with the electroformed tubular element. The result is a very light and luminous jewel. The collection includes two necklaces, three bracelets, four earrings and two rings, both in silver and gold silver versions. Prices: the silver necklace costs 580 euros, the ring 150 euros, the maxi earrings 180 euros.
