I spent two hours last Friday at Eleni Marneri gallery trying on almost all the jewelry, from the “Hermes” and “Cerotto” rings to the porcelain necklaces of Mia Kwon and the sculpted adornments of Taiwan artists “Bench886″.
Fine jewelry tend to bear a breath of elderly air, an aged aesthetics that when seen with a fresh pair of eyes feels like carrying too much, as if they were found in a wealthy old lady’s tired boudoir.
The use of precious stones like sapphires, rubies and emeralds needs a contemporary look and a modern, elegant and refined approach in order to make a jewel look appealing in the ’10s. This is the main reason why I love Yannis Sergakis Adornments. He masters the high aesthetics of an unconventional design, bringing out calm power and unpretensciousness.

February is a very dull month -well at least for the northern hemisphere- and it’s always nice
to spice things up a little, at any given opportunity. So yes, that is a body jewel. A quite unconventional Jarretière worn on the leg and fitted on the waist, made of silver and “diamond polish” black spinel gemstones, by Angelo di Spirito Rosa. It also comes in a beautiful packaging which makes it the perfect gift for those who dare it.
