Pomellato isn’t your typical fine jewellery brand. It prides itself for being different, for being bold and for being authentically, and fiercely, Milanese in its design and philosophy. This festive season, if you’re looking for a gift for yourself or for the independent women in your life, you’ve come to the right place.
“Pomellato is about the beauty of being yourself,” says CEO Sabina Belli, and wearing Pomellato can convey “a sense of power, independent, strength.” The brand was created in 1967, at a time when women’s rights were being affirmed. It was the dawn of a new era for new power, bringing to light a new generation of youths, women and creative minds.
Pomellato’s founder was Pino Rabolini, who frequented the Brera’s Bar Jamaica in Milan, an epicentre of progressive thinking for all artistic fields. When he established Pomellato, it brought a fashionable revolution to fine jewellery and was an integral part of the Milanese design renaissance.
Today, the brand carries on this independent spirit. While the world of fine jewellery can still be quite conservative, Pomellato is paving the way for jewellery that speaks directly to women who prefer to buy their own jewellery, and prefer jewellery pieces that liberate, rather than show off wealth and status.
With their unconventional yet timeless designs, Pomellato jewellery pieces are sure to excite the receiver, be it your closest women friends and family, even yourself.
Read on to discover the latest collections from Pomellato.
Nudo – gifts for the sophisticated woman
Take the Nudo collection for example, which debuted in 2001. At a time when ring settings tended to be more elaborate and traditional, Pomellato reduced the ring design to its bare essence, presenting its vivid coloured gemstones in its purest, most tactile form. The first collection featured vibrant hues of garnet, aquamarine, peridot, iolite and red tourmaline and enjoyed instant success all around the world.
This year, to celebrate its 20th anniversary, the Nudo Chocolate collection is born, bringing us a few new delectable designs.
The Nudo Chocolate collection is inspired by cacao sweet treats. Set with moonstones and brown diamonds on warming 18K rose gold, the rings, earrings and bangles are a departure from Nudo’s usual colour palette, evoking a more subtle and sophisticated touch.
Iconica – gifts for the audacious woman
Design is at the forefront of the new jewellery pieces in the 2021 Iconica Collection. In sinuous gold, crafted in homage to Pomellato’s origins in goldsmithing, the Iconica bracelets and chunky rings are sculpted from rose gold or white gold, with hand-carved diamond settings in the shapes of Pomellato stars, triangles, droplets, diamonds and squares.
There is also a precious colour parure in the collection, featuring a new “chain link” earring and a new hoop earring that comes with Pomellato’s signature gemstone colours set in rose gold.
Catene – gifts for the fashionable woman
Catene, meaning chains in Italian, naturally features chain-inspired jewellery for the young, fashion-forward customer. Chains have always been a fashion staple, and have been at the very heard of the Pomellato story since the beginning. Founder Rabolini was the son of a Milanese family of goldsmiths who specialised in chain and ring-making. His Gourmet chain, when he debuted it, became the first fine jewel to be considered a fashion accessory.
Pomellato has mastered the technique for making supple chains, no matter whether they’re stacks of chunky chokers or tiers of draped, gem-set chains. A long sautoir would require 16 hours to craft, while more elaborate gem-set versions could take up to 170 hours of meticulous work by Pomellato’s craftsmen.
The timeless design makes the Catene collection the perfect daily essential with a Milanese sensibility. Composed of bracelets, rings and earrings, the collection features dangling and mobile chains in the Gourmette (curb chain) link style, which moves with the wearer as she goes about her day. The collection comes in rose gold with or without diamonds, or in white gold with diamonds.
Playful, sophisticated, stylish and timeless, each Pomellato jewellery piece is an embodiment of each individual’s personality and style. It’s sure to be a gift you would love to gift and receive.
