The contemporary jewel has never been so dazzling! The aim is to offer visitors a selection of artworks that best represent the main features of contemporary jewelry: inspiration, character, identity. Each piece aspires to represent and identify with the interiority and the character of its wearer to strengthen not only the style but also to represent the deepest essence. Beyond the kaleidoscopic visual impact, the jewels on display manifest the artistic research and technical skills of their proponents: established and emerging artists. The works on display invite reflection and personal improvement, the synesthetic power of colors accompanies the observer in a sensory journey that evokes distant places, scents and experiences. The iridescent reflections change appearance, sensitive to movement; other jewels instead synchronize with the gestures of the wearer. Irreverence and originality characterize these extraordinary works of art. Come, and let yourself be dazzled!

The artist uses sources of inspiration in the realm of technology and performance to safeguard the wearability of her pieces. Eden Lennox is a contemporary art jeweller from Perth, Australia. Her creations are scratchy and irreverent, unconventional and with a certain punk aura. Renate Erlacher is Austrian, graduated in German studies and Philosophy, MA, PhD in Psychology.

Donald Friedlich has been a leading figure in contemporary American jewelry for four decades. His works investigate the ability of the jewel to change through movement. The glass and the specificities of the polished gems used guarantee a luminescent optical effect that seems to come from another planet. Mădălina Spiridon is from Romania, every piece she makes has a special meaning by researching symbols of emotions, gestures, actions through the use of materials and colours. Di Nai was passionate about art from early childhood. Her Jewelry explores the concept of “non-precious preciousness,” seeking value in intangible things like stories, emotions, and non-physical materials such as light.
