The timeless, exalted designs

Statement rings create a bold expression with its lone oversized stone. The rings originated from the quest of women for freedom in the 1920s. At present, it has become a symbol to emphasize a woman’s independence. One of the popular statement rings emerged in the 1930s was BVLGARI Trombino or ‘little trumpet.’ It stood out with its stunning 14.38-carat Burmese ruby set amidst baguette-cut diamonds.

Colored gemstones have taken its center stage, replacing costly diamonds. BVLGARI pioneered incorporating stunning gemstones in its collection with Giardinetto brooch. The brooches highlight the different color combinations and have become iconic designs at present. Fairy Wings, a necklace from Cinemagia, features eight different gems representing the beauty of nature.

Mismatched earrings may surprise some with its unique concept but for women who like to be daring, a pair adds an edge to your style. Though it can be worn for a casual yet sophisticated look, it can also add an exceptional glamour. Diva’s Dream may come as a delightful surprise with its seemingly mismatched design. Yet the pattern of the stones makes for a refined, feminine allure.
