MILANO GIOIELLI — April 25, 2021 at 4:00 am

Gold, Incense, Myrrh and vintage appeal




Oro, Incenso e Mirra: amber buttons used as pearls for a necklace, English clasps of the eighteenth century that instead become brooches, Chinese jade that closes the coral threads of Sciacca. The boutique in the center of Milan is a refined meeting place for collectors and equally refined connoisseurs of vintage jewelry. Unique pieces born from the taste of the owner, capable not only of choosing, but of interpreting antiques fragments and imagining a new use. And alongside these refined objects, splendid vintage jewels from all over the world: from the deco pendants with pearls and diamonds of modern China to the seventies bracelets of the American designer David Webb, from the gold earrings with enamel miniature, a classic from Germany in the late nineteenth century to the diamond and emerald necklaces of Mughal India.
