DALLAS, Jun 3, 2012/ — Everyone already knows that the Cannes Film Festival is as much about cinema as it is about fashion. Yet, does everyone realize that it is also as much as the clothes as the jewelry when the world’s most recognizable faces walk the red carpet?
Called “high jewellery”, these beautiful creations belong to the magic kingdom of superlative jewellery and exceptional stones – a realm filled with imagination and passion which brings together the many trades to create unique pieces capable of combining emotions and creativity in a contemporary spirit.
A high jewellery atelier, Geneva-based de GRISOGONO employs the jewelry design tradition and techniques that has been firmly rooted in its home city since the dawn of the Renaissance. Indeed, Genevan goldsmiths and jewellers were renowned all over Europe… as early as four centuries before the first jewellers were established on the Place Vendôme in Paris. With roots like these, one can nurture big dreams.
The creation of an exceptional piece is generally born from the encounter between an inspiration and a gemstone: it stems from the vision of a designer like Fawaz Gruosi, a brand like de GRISOGONO, capable of thinking in terms of volumes, reflecting the nuance of colours and drawing in tune with light.
Very few contemporary designers have this intuitive gift for High Jewellery that sublimates light. With de GRISOGONO, the science of shapes infuses a spirit to the art of gemstones.
High Jewellery cannot be repetitive. The Cannes Festival revealed some new touches enriching theartist’s palette of Fawaz Gruosi, who has revisited the great classics of his trade with gems that are showcased in truly stunning fashion.
