The Techique and Beauty of Garavelli Jewelry
Elisabetta Molina Valerani is obviously proud of the heritage of Garavelli, the Valenza, Italy-based jewelry company. Started in 1920, the family-owned firm is now managed by the fourth generation and has well-known reputation of creating beautiful, quality products.
But Valerani, speaking with JNN at Centurion 2011 luxury jewelry show, said she is most proud of the company’s new products, which combine classic designs with modern techniques.
For example, the rings, necklaces and bracelets of Garavelli’s Coil collection (above), use triangular-shaped settings to house rows of colored diamonds (including natural blue diamonds). The result is that the 18k gold rings are flexible.
Meanwhile, the earrings, pendants, bracelets and necklaces of the company’s Eternity Collection (left), features diamond pave that covers 18k white, yellow and rose gold shaped in circle and heart-shaped patterns.
The multicolored palette includes diamonds, sapphires and other precious stones, thus creating limitless variations.
