Three pieces of de Grisogono high jewelery dedicated to the Mediterranean sea ♦
La Maison de Grisogono is based in Geneva, on Lake Geneva, but its founder Fawaz Gruosi (now exited from the company), is an Italian of Lebanese origin. Italy and Lebanon, two countries overlooking the Mediterranean sea. Perhaps as a reflection of these origins, between sea and blue sky, strong colors and primary tastes, de Grisogno offers three high jewelery creations dedicated to the Mediterranean, with turquoise stone in the center. The blue of turquoise is combined with the warmth of amethysts or pink sapphires, it evokes the richness and the Mediterranean flora, or, in a creation, it matches the depth of emeralds and blue sapphires that reflect the magnificence of the sea.
The necklace is composed of 11 cabochon cut turquoises. Each of the natural stones has been selected for its size and for the depth of its colors. Each individual stone is set in a fan of amethysts and pink sapphires as a tribute to the Maison’s famous Ventaglio collection.
The ring takes up the pattern of the Ventaglio (fan) collection. At the heart of the jewel is an exceptional cabochon cut turquoise. On the two sides of the stone there are the flounces of the fan composed of diamonds, pink sapphires and brilliant-cut amethysts. With an exquisite finish to the touch of the hand, the eye discovers that the wings of the jewel are entirely covered with amethysts also in the lower part.
The earrings evoke the waves of the sea with pendants of turquoise, sapphires and emeralds set with the technique of neige serts, joining like two sensual currents going up towards the ear. The jewel is fluid and light thanks to the titanium structure.
