Mantra Collection by Luca Carati
 
People want to ‘invest’ in what they buy. Something of serious quality, with a story to tell, narrative jewellery that is gorgeous. It is not the time to produce mindless frivolities. Disposable jewellery is no longer a must. There is a desire for individuality.
 
Zydo, Autore, Roberto Coin, Palmiero, Picchiotti and some others understand this well and showcased collections well in tune with the dominant mood.
 
“We must highlight the urgent need for a cultural revolution in jewellery, supporting the fact that Roberto Coin is committed not only to product and design, but also to the creation of values,” says Roberto Coin.

Luxury customers will still buy, but they’re being infinitely more discerning – they seek limited edition items which are made exceptionally well to last.
 
Autore displayed South Sea pearl jewellery collections, including Essential, Boutique, Couture, alongside exclusive designs from the limited-edition Oceania range.
 
 
 Bovary collection by Zydo
Diamonds and emeralds Parure


Diamonds, Sapphires, Emeralds, exclusivity and design research, found shape in the timeless elegance of the latest Bovary Collection by Zydo, giving great value and renewed artistic vigour, praising the high aesthetic values of luxury without ostentation.

If Nature is the reassuring place where one finds sweetness, enchantment and the warmth of softly wrapping shapes, the City is the fast and modern scenario, rich in graphical style. These elements fused to give Luca Carati’s design a strong contemporary taste.
 
These are all beautifully made investment pieces, a single one of which would add immensely to existing collections.
