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.
