Based in Geneva, Savelli is a new company that merges technology with luxury craftsmanship, just like its latest creations. Unveiled at Harrods fine jewellery room last month, the two limited-edition smartphones are set with the finest Gemfields Zambian emeralds.
The first smartphone, called Emerald Night, features 400 brilliant-cut emeralds set in gold and is limited to 19 pieces, while the second, entitled Emerald Insane, is decorated with 75 baguette-cut emeralds on white gold and limited to just eight pieces.
Setting emeralds on the curvaceous contours of a smartphone proved to be a complex task. Each stone had to be specifically cut and colour-matched to ensure a seamless design.
"This exclusive, limited-edition collection perfectly embodies the harmony of technology and jewellery craftsmanship," says Savelli founder and CEO Alessandro Savelli. "The partnership between Savelli and Gemfields demonstrates our ability to surprise by creating a unique and elegant accessory that is set with responsibly sourced gemstones."
Savelli phones are the first luxury smartphones dedicated to women. Created as a precious piece of jewellery, they feature the latest technology.
"We are delighted to be working with Savelli, a company that is leading the way when it comes to combining beauty and technology. Not only do we appreciate the skill and craftsmanship that has gone into setting the gems, but we are really excited to see emeralds being used in a smartphone, elevating technology to greater levels of luxury," said Gabriella Harvey, Gemfields Director of cut and polished gemstones.
