Maharaja’s collection by Salvini: golden embroidery inspired by the Indian princes houses ♦
To indicate a rich person, is said to be like a maharaja. Princes and rulers of the ancient territories of India, particularly Rajasthan, have entered the collective imagination. So why not summon wealth through their image? That’s what Salvini (a Damiani Group brand) did with the Maharaja collection. No elephants or ethnic icons, though.
The collection is rather inspired by the architecture of the kings’ palaces, with jewelery details reminiscent of the lacework of capitals or bows, as in the multiple ring that resembles a embroidered gallery. The collection is available in all three gold colors, with more diamonds, sapphires and rubies. In short, the stones preferred by the maharaja. Between lace and ramage, with sinuous lines, there is also the classic paisley motif (as a comma inverted) that is a classic of oriental decoration. Prices: multiple rings cost around 7,000 euros, earrings on 6,700 euros. Alessia Mongrando
