Gabriele Pennisi ed Emanuele Pennisi

For the halls of the Icons Room of the Jewelry Museum in Vicenza (o da lasciare Museo del Gioiello) we decided to display only vintage pieces, given our family tradition, and, in particular, jewels spanning from 1600 to 1930. The objects we display are part of our private collection, so they will be shown for the first time for visitors who love vintage and classic jewels. The choice we made for the Icons Room of the Jewelry Museum in Vicenza is surely an eclectic one. We chose jewels which date back from the 17th century up to the 1930s. The countries of origin are very different, we see many European jewels and some American jewel. Surely most are French jewels. The common trait in our choices is that of objects which are a depiction or have a main character. The most representative is a jewel which is actually an icon, a holy figure. Starting from that, we chose jewels that portray classic characters, or jewels that depict landscapes. So, we display jewels which are icons in a literal sense, and also jewels which become iconic and symbols of an era.
