Calipso, nymph daughter of Atlas, who in the Odyssey welcomes the shipwrecked Odysseus on the island of Ogigia and, in love with him, holds him for seven years, until he receives the order from Zeus to let him leave. A woman undoubtedly fascinating also in the eyes of the Sicis designers, who dedicated some high jewelery pieces to Calipso.
As always the jewels of Sicis, Maison based in Ravenna, combine gold and precious stones with a delicate micro mosaic work. The Calipso necklace, furthermore, use 165 special and precious Akoya Light Blue pearls woven in a gold weave, alongside brilliant cut diamonds that intertwine and embrace elements decorated with micromosaic. Hundreds of tiny tiles line up and create designs in shades of sapphire blue and white, sinuous play of color and imperceptible reflections. The necklace, in particular, is a piece of high jewelery and of great value, not only for the difficult processing of the piece, but also for the quantity of Akoya pearls used. Surely Calipso would have liked it too.
