New collections from Italian fine jewellery brand FOPE have been introduced to retailers this month at FOPE’s UK headquarters in Solihull and will be shown at the upcoming VicenzaOro fair later this month.
New 18 carat gold collections that will be available for FOPE’s retail partners this Spring include the Aria collection of earrings and necklaces. Aria is made from a new delicate, fine gold mesh chain and is aimed at emerging luxury consumers, tapping into the athleisure fashion trend. Pieces within the Aria collection have been designed to be mixed and matched in the three gold colourways, featuring gold cylinders set with white or black diamonds, for women and men.
Aria also has a new shorter length necklace of 37mm, along with a new Y-shaped lariat style necklace with a gold cylinder that can move up and down the length of the chain to adjust the length and style of the piece. This versatile necklace is available with a cylinder set with either a single diamond or with three diamonds, and with matching long drop earrings. Earrings within the Aria collection are also noteworthy for the use of the light chains, which hang from behind the ear and have been designed to be multi-functional. The chains can be worn long or short, looped from the back to the front of the earring, or removed to create a simple stud design.
Another new collection from FOPE is Luna, a contemporary, heavy mesh gold chain that has been made totally flexible by FOPE’s innovative patented system. The collection features choker style necklaces that simulate the look of a rigid choker with all the comfort of a flexible gold mesh that FOPE’s fine jewellery collections are best known for. Luna Flex’it bracelets, which are available in white, yellow and rose gold, are a design aimed at both women and men.
Also new for 2022 is the introduction of diamond detailing within the FOPE branding of individual pieces. FOPE’s Product Development Manager Claudia Piaserico said: “We took the opportunity to seize our DNA and show our personality by setting our FOPE logo into the design of these pieces and accenting the O of FOPE with a single diamond.” The new diamond-set logo in highly polished gold now features in new versions of best-selling FOPE collections Eka,Solo, Vendôme, Panorama and Prima.
Finally, an extension to the successful Essentials range, that was launched in 2021, are new bi-coloured gold rings. These rings have been expertly crafted by FOPE to have half of the band of the ring in a contrasting gold colour and so can be worn in multiple ways. The slim design of the rings also means they can be stacked together, while their flexible nature means they can be worn on different fingers. This new design makes these best-selling rings even more versatile. The new Essential rings will have a retail price of £800.
