On the subtle boundary between dream and reality, the irresistible magnetism of seduction takes shape and finesse on jewellery like Sirene (Mermaids), a variation of three jewels that achieve heights of sublime purity and sensuality: a delightful little mermaid sitting languidly on a pearl, a second who is meditating while seated in a yoga position on top of a larger pearl and a third stylish and dynamic who is amusing herself while playing with several pearls.
The jewels’ gold fish scales, delicately engraved by hand, are adorned with diamonds. The pearls come from the South Seas (Australia) and Tahiti. The collection comes in more shades of gold and pearl to give each Sirene her own personality.
The song of the Sirene, emblem of marine mythology, responds to the intense charm of an Earth-bound legend: following the mysteries hidden behind the curtain of tents in distant deserts, the creative process of Pia Mariani arrives at Sheherazade.
Can the delicate weave of real cotton lace be turned into gold fabric? Thanks to the determination of Pia and to her constant work alongside outstanding master goldsmiths, the hidden dream of ancient alchemists became reality. And after thirteen months of laboratory processing Pia Mariani conceived the Sheherazade jewellery collection.
The collection is inspired by an exotic female world, deeply intimate and veiled in mystery, which harks back to our illusion of possible lands from the East.
It includes the highly acclaimed cuff-shaped bracelets with delicate-coloured stones; and then rings, earrings, Cuori (hearts) to be worn around the neck, a new necklace with diamonds, the highlight of the collection, and several other jewellery pieces, all conceived from the special, unique and exclusive process, developed by Pia Mariani, that allows for transforming gold into the most delicate lace textures. The creations of Sheherazade produced in very delicate lace are set off against the Fahrenheit collection that incorporates the same range of jewellery, but worked in gold sheets of absolute lustre to become almost spatial, such as the Fahrenheit cuff accompanied by a precious gem in aquamarine mounted on its surface.
In such a way, jewels also become fashion: during the fashion shows, Pia presented her jewels along with Raffaella Curiel’s clothes in a memorable fashion show at the prestigious National Museum of Science and Technology in Milan.
