Jewellery reigns supreme in all its manifestations for two days in Milan through the works of 10 designers, both Italian and International, and their interpretations of Fine, Fashion and Design jewellery.
The Jewellery House gives voice to diverse creative styles ranging from the sober and discreet – such as small rings, slogan bracelets, double snake rings and delicately structured ear cuffs – to sharply delineated geometric pieces in gold and silver, voluminous organic creations such as macro rings and one-off pieces in resin and gold dust, and gold-plated or floral-stamped cuff bracelets from Columbia.
To top off, collections on show include medieval-style chain mail pieces, and fashion jewellery pendants, necklaces and cuffs dominated by colour. This fifth edition of The Jewellery House, which takes place in Milan on October 22nd and 23rd at Circo Solferino, is hosted in collaboration with Podere L’Aione in Scansano.
Here are the names of the participants:
Marta Paolillo: Heir to prestigious knowledge, Marta Paolillo re-creates a tiny world in titanium, carbon and galuchat, undisputedly ruled by the serpent.
Vanessa Pederzani: The third generation of a family of jewellers that has always united distinctiveness, elegance, refinement and exclusivity, today Vanessa presents her first collection: romantic and in full pavé.
Spallanzani 1880: Today Gaia Spallanzani takes the helm and reinvents her prestigious family brand, reworking its most significant icons with verve, from cuff bracelets to the ‘Only You’ collection.
Chiara Costacurta: Practical, harmonious, minute: Chiara Costacurta’s collections are lovers of discretion, articulated with delicacy through gold, silver, diamonds and semi-precious stones.
Andy Lifschutz: A New York designer, Andy Lifschutz creates hyper-textual jewellery, giving precedence to gold, silver, bronze and wood combined with diamonds, sapphires, rubies and aquamarine. His most recent collection, ‘Lunae’, fully expresses this sculptural inclination.
Opposite Jewels: The brand’s creative mind, Antonello Malfa, experiments with new techniques, combining resin with gold dust to create visionary organic forms such as macro rings and earrings.
Hedy Martinelli: An influential name for generations in the fine jewellery niche, today Hedy Martinelli articulates her jewellery through intriguing means, with metal mesh, burnishing and chains, each noted for their exclusivity.
Pi.Jewellery: Bold, clean, geometric, imperfect. Pi.Jewellery creates hand-made micro-sculptures with the lost-wax casting technique before being burnished, rhodium-plated, tumble-finished or covered in gold leaf.
Giuliana Mancinelli Bonafaccia: Every piece is the outcome of an unconventional choice and contrast, with architectural-like detail and texture. Original designs and innovative combinations.
Flor Amazona: Colouful, exuberant, lively: the Bogotà brand expresses the vivacity of its origins through imaginative cuffs with floral designs and animal prints.
