Elegant in form and executed with rigorous attention, these pieces of art, as indeed they might be better called, are created from beaten gold and often adorned with precious stones. The jewellery made in this way is the result of an "all-Italian" tradition, and succeeds perfectly in fusing the most modern design with the oldest art of goldsmithing. Modern design is seen in geometric forms and openwork effects, while tradition is brought out both through the ancient production techniques of lost-wax casting and beaten gold, and through inspirations clearly drawn from mythology.
