Italian artists and sculptures have long been known for their masterful depictions of the human form, from Michelangelo’s David to Bernini’s Apollo and Daphne.
Inspired in part by the body’s soft curves and flowing lines, wrap jewelry has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its unique design and versatility. The intertwining of Italian excellence in wrap jewelry with the artistry of sculpting the human body creates a unique and exceptional connection. The Italian approach to “wrap-up” jewelry is similar to the art of sculpting the human form in that both require a keen eye for detail and an appreciation of the beauty in the natural curves and lines of the human body.
Nova Rank’s stretchable Dune collection, handcrafted in Vicenza with gold and diamonds, and Tuscan, K di Kuore’s Move collection, whose focal feature is the free movement of the diamonds over the gold elements, offer minimalist on-trend pieces. For those looking for understated sophistication in their jewelry choices, the spiral pattern of the wrap allows the jewelry to flow continuously around the wearer’s body, emphasizing the contours and lines of the human form, making them outstanding light-weight adornments.
The sinuosity of Novecentonovantanove’s gold and interwoven diamond multi strand wrap, positions itself as Florentine elegance with refined lines creating an enchanting display. Milanese brand, Stella Milano’s Cioccolato wrap bracelet combines traditional craftsmanship with a contemporary design. It features two rounded carved malachite stones at either end of a ‘popcorn chain’ textured wrap-up bracelet. This diversity of character in wrap adornment, lends itself to a wide range of styles, from the intricately detailed and opulent to the minimalist, understated, and even everyday wearable.
Italian luxury jewelry brands are characterized by their bold, innovative, and unique designs. They seamlessly combine classical and contemporary features, frequently integrating vibrant and coloured metal accents. Founded on the foundations of the Neapolitan handmade goldsmith tradition Marcello Pane & C, and Tessitore 1888 are celebrated not only for their breathtaking beauty but also for their impeccable artistry and craftsmanship. Synonymous with high quality goldsmith production, Veneroso’s gold and diamond wrap-up bracelet with integrated mechanical hinge, combines Vicentini craftsmanship along with new technologies of 3d printing.
Wrap-up jewelry, from a psychological aspect, offers a broad and dynamic landscape of alternatives for discerning individuals wishing to express their distinct style and taste while breaking away from standard jewelry trends; transitioning from ‘overly complicated’ designs to more streamlined, comfortable styles.
