After these notes of color, we come to the jewelry that draws Ms Getty and sells under its own brand, Sabine Getty. The latest collection takes up the work of one of the greatest Italian designer Ettore Sottsass, who in 1980 launched the Memphis group , inspired by a song by Bob Dylan and the works of Sonia Delauny. Straight lines, circles, flat colors: a revolution for the time. Sabine Getty has transformed this style in jewelry in the shape of a zig-zag, gold and precious stones: bracelets, earrings and rings very determined. Margherita Donato
