Renowned designer Paloma Picasso creates a stunning new jewelry collection inspired by the olive branch as a symbol of peace and abundance.
The new collection, Paloma’s Olive Leaf, captures elements from the olive groves surrounding her home in Morocco, a place of serenity, and also represents a link to her name. “Paloma means dove in Spanish,” she says. “We are all familiar with the dove carrying an olive branch as a peace offering. The jewelry I’ve created pays tribute both to the messenger’s noble mission and gardens as a refuge of peace and tranquility.”
The collection is sumptuous yet delicate, a garden of precious metals shot with gemstones. A bib necklace traces the tender leaves and stems in an intricate, openwork pattern of brilliant green tsavorites and 18 karat gold. This elegant profusion of leaves forges pendants in gleaming gold or sterling silver, as well as one-of-a-kind rings in 18 karat white gold and diamonds. Gold cuffs echo the ancient olive wreathes that crowned the glorious and victorious.
The designer places beautiful and colorful gemstones among leafy branches of gold or silver. Rubellite and green peridot cabochons are entwined in ring settings of 18 karat gold with diamonds. Pear-shaped rubellites accent luxuriant drop earrings of gold and sparkling diamond leaves. There are also earrings with perfect ovals of translucent blue topaz suspended boldly from little gold leaves.
Paloma’s Olive Leaf is wonderfully fluid and moves with an easy grace dazzling in the light like leaves lifted on a gentle breeze or flowers dancing under the sun.
This collection is available at the Tiffany & Co. boutique at The Shops at Crystals.
