Treasures to keep

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.

La Jarretière

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.

Crepe oversized Carven dress, pink-gold pumps See by Chloe, Lulu Frost retro necklace and…
the very first, highly refined, sophisticated (and absolutely addictive) Eau de Parfum I (and II for him) by Korres
with freesia, patchouli, vanilla and bergamot,
for the 25th of December.


Proud and happy for being part of the “I Live For Me” campaign together with Folli-Follie, which supports once again this non-profit organization for people with cancer and chronic diseases.
For those looking to combine their Xmas gifts with a good cause, they can find this pretty leather-pink gold plated
bracelet at Folli-Follie stores and online, available from mid December.
