Florentine jeweller Paolo Costagli offers an array of candy coloured jewels that really speak to the kind of casual but very elegant adornment favourted by Italian women. They aren’t afraid of colour, and they aren’t afraid of impact.
Costagli has his own blog, http://paolocostagli.blogspot.com/, with a link to his web site. If an inanimate object can exude a sense of joy, these do. Made of 18k white gold, and featuring reverse set amethysts and accented with rubies and diamonds, they retail for USD $3,400 and are available at Neiman Marcus (though currently showing as back ordered). Pretty, pretty.
