The bees of Delfina Delettrez fly in the form of rings, necklace and earrings. And they don’t sting ♦ ︎
After the beetles, here are the bees. Delfine Delettrez in 2017 had designed an collection dedicated to insects to exorcise her entomophobia, that is fear of spiders, cockroaches and the like. But, perhaps, it does not have as much fear of honey producers. And here, then, the collection called with humour To Bee or not to Bee, paraphrasing the famous monologue of Hamlet, where the verb to be is replaced by the word bee. The jewels-bees are made with 18-carat yellow gold, black diamonds and yellow sapphires, in some cases with the addition of pearls and citrines. In short, it is perhaps the only way to make friends with bees without the risk of being stung.
It is another stage of the now vast production of Delfina Delettrez, the fourth generation of the Fendi family, who presented her first jewelery collection in October 2007 in Colette, Paris. Since 2010 she has also been the youngest designer with a permanent collection at the Musée des Arts Decoratif of the Louvre. Cosimo Muzzano
