Rosa dei Venti by Giampiero Bodino
Choker, Rosa dei venti, 2013
red spinel, emerald, blue sapphires, yellow sapphire, amethyst, diamonds, pink gold 36 × 4 cm
"The choker consists of four compass roses dotted with large central stones in a stylish combination of contrasting colours, further highlighting the chiaroscuro of the pavé of black diamonds in the back-ground. A double row of groumette links in rose gold and diamonds unites the four medallions in a contemporary sign of elegance and femininity. Note the attention to detail, especially those hidden or invisible, such as the fasteners and the back, which highlight the sense of this being a masterpiece."
