Nature and beauty… two words, one soul. Just as a smile creases a woman’s face, the slow advance of a boat furrows the waves of the sea. The sinuous lines and elongated profiles chains, bracelets and rings in the Navette collection by Mattioli make a twofold reference. They recall the navette cut of sculptured gems evoking tiny, symbolic boats, which became popular in the 1400s. Also, King Louis XV of France asked the court jewellers to cut a diamond for his Madame de Pompadour in the shape of the mischievous lips of the lady, the marquise cut: thus decreeing the notoriety of a stone that has now become an entire collection.
Just as the emotions flit across the face of a woman, the prow of a boat traces numerous sentiments in the waters, the trajectory of a long journey.
Like the alternation of walls and windows, the airy weightlessness of links in yellow gold and diamonds decrees the success of models only apparently minimalist. The proof lies in the long adjustable chain with a single link studded with diamonds, the distinctive trait of each model, like the earrings with a single row of stones.
