From the jewelry collection Frutti Di Mare: Poseidon.
Pearls – Tears of the Gods
The baroque Conch pearl sits perfectly harmoniously on the water drop of the shell. The falling drops sparkle through the flawless diamonds. The warm rose gold forms a flattering unit with the delicate rosé of the Conch pearl.
The collection “Frutti di Mare” (Italian for “fruits of the sea”) is also symbolic from the point of view of “pearls – tears of the gods”, based on an old Chinese fairy tale. Therefore every single piece of jewelry was named after a sea god, e.g. Poseidon, the god of the sea, the brother of Zeus.
How the pearl was born… (Old Chinese fairy tale):
When the first drop of rain fell from the clouds into the immeasurably blue ocean, it was so tiny that it was overrun by the waves, and it shouted plaintively:
“How inconspicuous and small I am in this vast room.” And the undulating sea replied: “Your modesty honors you, little drop of water. You shall be rewarded. I will turn you into a drop of light – you will be the purest of all jewels, the queen of all, and you will have power over women.” And so the pearl was born…
Given the rarity of natural pearls and their mysterious beauty: Who would want to claim that pearls are not a gift from the gods?
