Stylish Ode To Puc­cini

Upscale Living Magazine - - Jewelry -

A strong sense of style flows through Avakian’s Tosca Col­lec­tion un­veiled at Cannes 2019 this sum­mer. Heav­ily in­flu­enced by the Belle Époque era, the col­lec­tion ref­er­ences strands of pearls and the then pop­u­lar ‘gar­land’ style, us­ing gems to nar­rate the vis­ual poetry. The line also takes in­spi­ra­tion in part, for its name, from Ital­ian opera com­poser Gi­a­como Puc­cini’s in­cred­i­ble work – Tosca. Glam­our and op­u­lence also serve as in­spi­ra­tions for Mai­son Avakian. “Tosca by Puc­cini was the first opera I watched grow­ing up and one that re­mains vividly etched in my mem­ory. I wanted to create a line that was rem­i­nis­cent of that era, but while keep­ing the playful as­pect which is found in all our cre­ations,” says Haig Avakian, Vice Pres­i­dent. Tosca ear­rings and rings are ren­dered in three vari­a­tions, each com­pris­ing a change­able element. The trans­formable Tosca ruby ear­rings are off­set with mother-of-pearl and white di­a­monds, and shiny pink gold on the op­po­site side. The Tosca sap­phire ear­rings are set with blue sap­phires and white di­a­monds with mother-of-pearl and shiny white gold on the re­verse side, while the Tosca white di­a­mond it­er­a­tion is adorned with mother-of-pearl and white gold. The ear­rings come with match­ing rings. | avakian.com
