Pomellato’s New High Jewelry Collection Celebrates Milan

“The Dualism of Milan” collection features two chapters representing the monochromatic and colorful spirit of the city.

Milan—Pomellato has released a new high jewelry collection, titled “The Dualism of Milan,” where creative director Vincenzo Castaldo expresses the paradox of the city’s austere urban essence with its abundantly creative soul, explains the brand.

It is split into two chapters, “Milan’s Monochromatic Treasures,” which has 23 pieces, and “Milanese Color Prism” with 28 pieces.

“First and foremost, I wanted to convey the spirit of the city, a mix of rationalist architecture, skyscrapers with their sinuous lines, the nighttime atmosphere of the shopping arcades,” said Castaldo.

“Then I wanted to illustrate this ability that Milan has always had to focus on color in every creation, such as the work of Gio Ponti or the Memphis Group.”

Milan’s Monochromatic Treasures has a refined aesthetic with discreet details and a subtle use of color.

Asimmetrico Earrings
The “Asimmetrico” earrings in 18-karat rose gold with 250 diamonds totaling 1.86 carats set in 18-karat white rhodium-plated rose gold (All pieces are price upon request)

The “Asimmetrico” earrings were inspired by César Pelli’s Milanese architecture.

They are bold yet feminine, said the brand, as they were designed to be sensual and sculptural.

Pomellato Moonstones Necklace
The 18-karat rose gold “Moonstones” necklace features 11 moonstones totaling 211.50 carats and pavé diamonds totaling 29.22 carats set in 18-karat white rhodium-plated rose gold.

Pomellato’s “Moonstones” choker necklace is a representation of the weather in Milan, as the city is often enveloped in mist.

Cielo Stellato Necklace
The “Cielo Stellato” 18-karat rose gold necklace with 10.28-carats of diamonds set on white-rhodium plated rose gold and a star made of 20.86-carats of gray spinels, 0.26-carats of gray sapphires, and 0.17-carats of blue spinels set on 18-karat black rhodium-plated rose gold

As a homage to the star mosaics in Milan’s planetarium, Castaldo created the “Cielo Stellato” necklace.

It uses gray sapphires, gray spinels, and blue spinels to create a star at the focal point of the chain.

The second chapter, “Milanese Color Prism,” contrasts the first with organic cuts and unexpected color combinations.

The choice of fuchsia spinels, blue tanzanites, and green tourmalines are meant to create pieces that radiate pure chromatic joy, said the brand.

Baroco Necklace
The “Baroco” necklace features a 33.87-carat Paraíba tourmaline, mandarin garnets totaling 38.23 carats, tsavorites totaling 31.01 carats, rubellites totaling 30.34 carats, aquamarines totaling 27.93 carats, tanzanites totaling 22.60 carats, and a 9.67-carat light blue zircon set on white rhodium-plated rose gold with highlights of pavé diamonds totaling 16.12 carats.

With a variety of hues and baroque-cut gemstones, the “Baroco” necklace embraces the color and creativity of this chapter.

Green Tourmaline Ring
Pomellato’s 18-karat rose gold ring with a 10.77-carat green tourmaline and diamonds totaling 2.15 carats set on white rhodium-plated rose gold

The green tourmaline ring continues the use of irregular baroque-cut gemstones, pairing it with a gourmette style chain.

Spinelli Di Fuoco Necklace
The “Spinelli Di Fuoco” necklace uses a total of 365 carats of multicolored spinels hanging from the 18-karat rose gold chain with diamonds totaling 5.51 carats set on white rhodium-plated rose gold.

The “Spinelli Di Fuoco” plastron necklace truly highlights the variety of hues used in this Milanese chapter.

The red, pink, purple, violet, gray, orange, amber, and scarlet spinel cabochons move fluidly with the wearer as they each sit in a uniquely designed closed or prong setting.

“In combining these two apparently opposite faces of Milan – one concrete, the other intangible, each with its own character – this high jewelry collection gives us a true, in-depth, multi-dimensional view of the city,” said Castaldo. 

Pomellato’s “The Dualism of Milan” collection debuted last week.
