For its lat­est line of fine jew­ellery for men, Dolce & Gab­bana looks to some of its sig­na­ture mo­tifs – the bee, the crown and the rose – as well as adding new pro­tag­o­nists, most no­tably West­ern-style pis­tols and horse­shoes with four-leaf clovers. Else­where, gold dragons and blue-green pea­cocks rear their proud heads, while other birds are ren­dered in trans­par­ent enamel and pavé gems. The colour­ful col­lec­tion is made up of cuff­links and pen­dants, in red, blue, black and green enamel, and yel­low and white gold, with a bombé insert in var­i­ous hues of crocodile leather. New brooches fea­ture a flo­ral mo­tif with twisted bezels or fil­i­gree de­tails. Sym­bol­ism aside, the col­lec­tion boasts a range of tech­niques rooted in Ital­ian gold­smithing tra­di­tions, from hand-ren­dered bas-re­lief to open­work and mir­ror-pol­ished fin­ishes, stud­ded with ru­bies, gar­nets, sap­phires, emer­alds and di­a­monds.
