As with the most memorable designs, Faraone Mennella aim to create jewellery that is as much forward thinking as it is classical, and their couture collection is no exception to this, taking their Mediterranean meets East Coast way of thinking to another level.

Still keeping with the curvaceous and very Italian forms of their impressive Signature collection, here we see the introduction of vivid colours and striking diamond settings that elevate the jewellery almost to grand spectacle. Inspired by the garden of the Faraone Mennella estate, the 'Giardino de Gioie' looks delicious: a large multi-colour cabochon bracelet in 18ct yellow gold with Aquamarine, Green Tourmaline, Green Beryl, Kunzite, Rubellite and of course diamonds; there are pieces like this that literally appeal to the tastebuds as much as they do the eyes, the rich colour on display a feast for the senses.

The Aquamarine Bullet is where you begin to see the incorporation of diamonds in the Couture collection that is pretty much unseen in their Signature collection, a one of a kind 18ct yellow gold bracelet with pave diamonds prominently set; likewise the rings in this collection certainly don't hold back with luxuriant stones and emeralds of all colours jumping out from imposing settings. The Khalifa 18ct yellow gold snake ring with brown, champagne and emerald stones is one of the collection's highlights.

Still though, there are the sublime moments when Faraone Mennella have taken colour and shape and combined them to make couture that is elegantly understated, namely the white gold green tourmaline and diamond earrings. Faraone Mennella have infused Italian design and artistry with their New York base to make pieces that are bold, colourful, and unmistakably theirs.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
