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.
