Titanium is a hard metal and it can be difficult to work with, requiring highly skilled artisans. Through a process of anodisation, the metal is heated to produce specific colours, and once the desired colour is achieved it does not change. The two new rings from Picchiotti are the Blue Titan, guarding a 5-carat cushion-cut unheated sapphire with mother-of-pearl petals lined with diamonds, and the Red Titan that features an internal titanium structure that supports the entire ring. This structure is coated with rose gold coupled with fine quality rose and multicoloured Ethiopian opal, embellished with diamond motifs. The ring is topped with an emerald-cut diamond of over 17 carats.
For 50 years, the brand presented its signature motif – the rose – in these modern, stylised earrings treated with anodised red-purple titanium in tandem with white gold shimmering with white diamonds and rubies.
