“Pavo Real” necklace

 

Princely feathers composed of 77 emerald (68,06 carats) and 14 sapphires (39,65 carats) for a necklace that enchants like the tail of a peacock. The Buccellati artisans engrave the stones one by one and they pop up out of a hedge composed of yellow gold acanthus leaves, finely engraved.

 

The necklace becomes a sculpture and annihilate the stiffness of the object by making room to soft and rounded lines. It pays homage to the creativity of the French architect Jacques Couelle, who ordered it. He was famous for inventing the architectural style of the Sardinian Emerald Coast and his architecture was never to be taken for granted. He did abolish the stiffness of the contours and opted for rounded edges, soft and upset shapes that we still can find at the Cala di Volpe hotel, where Buccellati has been opening up its season shop since more than 30 years, now.
