SUMMER 2021 JEWELRY TRENDS: romatic and minimalist, made for every look

Rings, bracelets, earrings and necklaces made of gold, bronze and silver. Jewels are much more than accessories, they can play with symbols, messages and materials, recreating and redesigning them to take them beyond the symbolic meaning they contain and transforming them into a recognizable ornament of the style and intimate research of each one. We have selected three Italian designers who stand out thanks to exclusive creations, cutting-edge workmanship and quality.

The secret tales of Francesca Mo. 

Romantic and poetic with an ironic twist, Francesca Mo, Milanese architect and designer, presents her new 2021 jewelry collection. Her passion for the seaworld and its gifts, poetry, fairy tales, lightness and arts, characterize everything she does, including her new creations: "Only for you" it is a new series, where the stones are protected in the jewel’s heart, just like a precious feeling; "Hover", on the other hand, unveals the stones completely.  “Arlecchini”, her second historic collection, is enriched with unique brooches and new patterns. Pieces of tiles collected over the years on the beaches of the Italan island “Elba”, contain landscapes and figures shaped by the sea smoothing the material and which the pen helps to reveal. Scenes of seaworld life, with navigating boats, creatures such as whales, fish, birds and dinosaurs, come to life on these palettes to complete what Nature has begun. And, just like a painting, they are unique jewels, one piece each.

The miniatures of Bona Calvi 

After humanistic studies, it is the passion for drawing and watercolor painting that pushes Bona Calvi to enroll in the Brera Academy of Fine Arts and later to attend the Ambrosiana Goldsmith school in Milan, which then led her to the creation of the first miniatures in 2015. Bona starts from a watercolor study, passing through the ancient technique of lost wax modeling, to obtain plastic shapes inspired by what surrounds us: from an octopus to a lion, from dolphins to ginko leaves, up to ladybugs and pomegranates, real micro-sculptures ready to be transformed into small bronze, silver and, on request, gold jewels.  A tribute toto the art of handcrafted goldsmiths and a reinterpretation of nature with sophisticated delicacy, giving us small miniatures to wear, collect and gift.

The original minimalism of Vu Elle Jewels.

Vu Elle Jewels, a young Italian jewelry brand, was born from the passion of Valentina Lucarelli, an emerging designer, constantly looking for the perfect combination of classicism and modernity. Her jewels are characterized by minimal and original aesthetics with a sophisticated and refined taste, but at the same time easy to wear and comfortable, which are well suited to the needs of a modern and dynamic woman but attentive to details. 
The jewels he designs, rigorously made piece by piece by hand by expert craftsmen, are born from the continuous search for simplicity, purity and minimalism; are inspired by the “Less is more ”and are characterized by clean and essential lines that make every single creation a special one.
