I am totally convinced that the true value of jewelry is not only in the materials of which they are composed but in the emotions they live on.
Look at one of your jewels, remember who gave it to you ?, when you bought it? What does it mean to you?
A jewel live with you a long time, much more than your clothes or than your mobile phone. That's why
smart people give away jewels.
The new luxury is not about expensive pieces, but about exclusive, original, elegant and contemporary jewelry.
Fill your life with beautiful objects, I work to get it
"Before all else I learned that these playthings were not mere idle trifles invented by manufacturers and dealers for the purposes of gain. They were, on the contrary, a little or, rather, a big world, authoritative and beautiful, many sided, containing a multiplicity of things all of which had the one and only aim of serving love, refining the senses, giving life to the dead world around us, endowing it in a magical way with new instruments of love, from powder and scent to the dancing show, from ring to cigarette case, from waist-buckle to handbag. This bag was no bag, this purse no purse, flowers no flowers, the fan no fan. All were the plastic material of love, of magic and delight. Each was a messenger, a smuggler, a weapon, a battle cry".
