If you are familiar with Pomellato you probably understand why it’s the 4th largest jeweler in Europe. So if have not seen the jewelry first-hand, we are fortunate to have a boutique in Chicago at 41 E. Oak Street. I met Faarah Grande, Director of Marketing for Pomellato to view the 2012 Collection up close and learn more the brand. Pomellato, a Milan-based jewelry company, was founded in 1967, and stands out in the jewel-making industry for having introduced the concept of ‘prêt-à-porter’ jewelry, a true revolution at the time. These pieces are made to be worn every day, day-to-night. They can be just as elegant with a t-shirt as with a formal gown. All of the shapes have soft rounded edges and natural inspiration. The jewelry is carefully crafted in Italy by artisans, using only raw materials of the highest quality. Faarah pointed out the gold they use is all rose gold. And if it is of a silver tone, it is white gold. The gems are often brightly colored and many of the shapes are organic, meaning they are not perfect circles or squares, but curved to fit perfectly. The details are incredible and I can see why the brand is so collectable. I was easily won over by Pomellato jewelry, with its combination of both classic and modern styling. Each piece can be cherished like a piece of artwork.
Here is a peek at some of the pieces from the 2012 Pomellato Collection.
