Famed Italian jewelry designer Roberto Coin recently showcased a new collection of pieces that revived vintage jewelry designs of the past.
The Bollicine (Italian for bubbles) Collection included cuffs and rings of gold filigrees in the shape of bubbles, according to the National Jeweler. The air-like quality of the pieces was reminiscent of antique pieces created during the Victorian Era that also featured gold wires in filigree.
Another trend that the jewelry company showcased was unique cocktail rings in shades of blue, the news outlet added. Clusters of blue sapphires and white diamonds were set in platinum and created a look that resembled the bright stars of the night sky.
Lastly, it seemed that Roberto Coin was also inspired by Art Nouveau vintage jewelry. The jeweler bedazzled all sorts of creatures, from scorpions to ants and frogs, to create beautiful pieces that evoked the natural characteristics of the period. For the "Scorpion Collection," a gold bangle was transformed into the arachnid, with its tail forming the circle of the piece. The creature was then bejeweled in black diamond, according to the news article.
