This collection is composed like a Diamante canvas, a fabric with a poetic criss-cross motif interspersed with small brown diamonds that are interlaced on an ecru background. In the 30s, to cope with a leather shortage, Guccio Gucci imagined this diamond motif. The Florentine brand’s first iconic print, the Diamante canvas would soon adorn its canvas bags. This motif even preceded and made way for the mythic GG logo; it’s an exclusive design that achieved its essential status in the 50s. And yet, it wouldn’t be until Frida Giannini came along that all the glamour of the adornment that previously fell out of favor would be given new life. By perusing the label’s archives, the designer is paying homage to one of the oldest Gucci motifs. This essential is today meeting this unique jewelry collection. If luxury is defined by an assortment of precious materials, a singular personality of each creation, and meticulous attention to details, than luxury the Diamantissima line definitely is.
Hand-made by Italian metalworkers, a rigid bracelet, pendant necklace, earrings, and ring compose the exquisiteness of this jewelry set made possible by a “cathedral” enameling technique. Designed to look like the stained glass windows of a cathedral, this process allowed Frida Giannini to create pieces with unequaled refinement ever so delicately. All the pieces are individually confectioned by hand, and the enamel is introduced with this same Italian artisanal savoir-faire. The iconic Gucci motif appears in top luxurious form in 18 carat rose gold. This finery was conceived to be worn all together or separately, but always with a certain grace that ideally lends itself to everyday outfits. Seeking ultimate harmony, the shape of the earrings responds to that of the pendant, while the Diamantissima ring seizes the fluid and emblematic curves of the ensemble of the collection. As the culmination of this perfection, the rigid bracelet is adorned with pyramid-shaped cabochons, similar to studs. This is the chic and audacious touch of a jewelry set made in an eternally feminine pink.
