Vhernier, the Italian jewellery house known for it’s bravely minimalist and sculptural jewels marks the opening of it new boutique in the Dubai Mall with a special edition of Freccia jewels.
Inspired by the shimmering blue of the Dubai sea, the special edition Freccia features an azure gem composed of three layers of different stones assembled using the ‘trasparenza’ technique. A fine slice of black jade is topped with a Harlequin opal and then a carved bulging arrow-head shaped rock crystal. The ‘stone’ is seamlessly set into a sinuous and smooth rose gold base each of which forms the links of the bracelet or the components of the ring and earrings. For the cuff bracelet, a diamond-set arrow-head sits in a row between three blue ones that give way to solid gold links. The jewels are also available in a white gold version.
The effect is mesmerising and like a crystal ball, opens up a seemingly endless pool of reflections and ever-changing play of colours. Carlo Traglio, owner and director of Vhernier has a unique philosophy on jewels: “My jewels are not about opulence as we have already seen that, it’s been done. I prefer to see women dressed in a very elegant, very chic way with one little detail that makes a difference.”
