Viva jewelry transformers. The queens and princesses of the courts of Europe knew for some time: if tiaras and bracelets are so precious and expensive, that at least they are versatile. And, in fact, in the royal collections become necessary tiaras necklaces, diamonds are replaced with colored gemstones for less formal occasions, the earrings are getting longer in the evenings and days become shorter. Also the artistic director of Van Cleef & Arpels, René Pouissant, tried his hand in this work at the suggestion of the Duchess of Windsor, creating in 1951 the famous necklace Zip. A kind of zipper that opens the V-shaped and goes around the neck. Closed, however, the series puts the wrist and cuff becomes. On the sides, instead of gold fabric worked herringbone and hearts cut with a diamond center and a valuable long tassel hanging from the cursor. A masterpiece that has made the history of jewelry and that can be seen in the new boutique of Van Cleef & Arpels in Milan in Via Montenapoleone ( http://gioiellis.com/van-cleef-arpels-a-milano/ ). So, the jewelry-change are certainly not new, but fortunately there is something new in their contemporary version: not only relegated to high jewelery models or traditional aesthetics. Among jewelers who is inspired by the game of Meccano, as the Cypriot designer Myriam Soseilos, who hides a ring inside the other as if they were dolls, like Dutch Bibi van der Velden. And who, as Kiki McDonough, a brand much loved by the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, creates an entire collection of earrings with interchangeable pieces of colorful stones. Or there are those, like Michela Bruni Reichlin, combines jade, white diamonds, gold and rubies to do enough. Matilde de Bounvilles
