Serpentis is an enchanting collection inspired by the mythological snake. Symbolising renewal, rebirth, and immortality, the serpent holds deep significance in ancient lore. From the revered deities Zeus and Apollo to the sacred healer Asclepius, the snake's presence embodies divine power. Serpentis captures this mystique through exquisite craftsmanship, offering timeless pieces that evoke the eternal cycle of life.
As rare as precious stones, ancient coins, sourced from antiquarians and auction houses, are referred to as “gemme nummarie” (nummary gems). In the past, they were carefully stowed away and left forgotten. Now, they have been carefully selected for their value, beauty and as witness of a bygone era.
The collection is inspired by the Byzantine Empress Theodora, wife of Emperor Justinian I. During her reign Hagia Sofia, the great basilica later turned mosque that dominates Istanbul, was built. The designs draw reference from the use of mosaics and colour in this architectural wonder as well as in Theodora’s personal adornment.
Punta Di Diamante
Inspired by the Palazzo dei Diamanti in Ferrara, who's exterior consists of some 8,500 white marble blocks carved to represent diamonds. This iconic collection brings to life coloured semi-precious stones that have been sculpted to reproduce this diamond-like effect.
