Stones with vivid colors, but also simple gold jewelery: the design of Paolo Costagli, from Florence to New York.
Florence, 1966: Paolo Costagli born of Venetian parents. New York, 2016:Paolo Costagli is awarded by InDesign Award for his Eternity collection. What happened in the meantime? Many things. The Italian designer has left Florence and moved to California, where he studied at the Gemological Institute of America. Not only. It decided to deepen their knowledge of the stones directly in the mines of Colombia.
The memories of the Renaissance Italian art combined with the experience expert gemologist has transformed Paolo Costagli in a jeweler designer based in New York that offers unique pieces that combine the two worlds: the colors of gems, that are searched with patience and dedication, more an architecture that surrounds precious stones. Peridot, citrines, amethysts, tourmalines, garnets, as well as diamonds and rubies, are the basis of its simple compositions, but unmistakable. His shop is in Medison Avenue and the prices of its jewels are in line with what you can expect. The capsule collection Eternity, for example, is composed of a series of rings with prices ranging from 6000 to $ 49,000. But the more simple jewelry lines, only in gold, have a much lower cost.
