Luxury fashion is expensive, we all know that. That is why, for many shoppers, selecting items that are classics, imbued with the brand’s hallmark design, and have the ability to transition from day to night is a must. But when it comes to investment pieces, many always go for jewelry pieces.
With them being made of precious metals and the most sought-after stones on the planet, jewelry pieces are products of the creativity of both nature and artisans. They are the very definition of wearable works of art. But apart from the value of their raw materials, what makes jewelry pieces true investments is when people can wear them in many ways.
That’s what Italian jewelry brand Nanis Italian Jewels is bringing to the Philippines—pieces that have timeless appeal and can be worn in more ways than one. This month, the brand was welcomed as the newest addition to Rustan’s Silver Vault. Present at the launch was Laura Bicego, co-founder and creative designer of the brand.
Founded in 1990 by Laura and her husband Piero Marangon, Nanis Italian Jewels has been on a mission to create high-quality jewels by merging heritage craftsmanship with contemporary designs. Its pieces are usually made of 18k gold and adorned with diamonds and other natural stones.
Growing up in Italy’s capital of gold, Vicenza, Laura was exposed to the world of jewelry from a young age, thanks to her father’s goldsmith company. Her passion for travel would later shape her unique vision, and as she ventured beyond her hometown even more, she acquired new skills and insights into international markets. She often sourced inspiration from nature and women, thus producing round, sinuous, organic, and sensual silhouettes.
One of the brand’s classic designs that transform is the Ivy Necklace. Featuring the ancient art of burin engraving, the piece can be worn as a long necklace, a layered necklace or bracelet, and even as a dainty belt. The Ciliegine earrings are also among the brand’s champion pieces. A personal favorite of Laura, the earrings feature hand-engraved gold boules, a signature element of the Nanis’ design, and can be worn in formal or casual events. Laura reimagines the classic chain design with the Libera collection. In making it, she decided to “free” the chain. The result is a light and bold collection with Nanis’s signature burin scratches and a different perspective on chain jewelry.
