Diamond and Pink Sapphire 'Serpente' Demi-Parure, Scavia
- diamond, pink sapphire, white gold
INIMITABLE ITALIAN FLAIR
Established by Domenico Scavia in Milan in 1923, Scavia started as a modest goldsmith shop. This Italian tradition has since been passed down in the family and is currently in the hands of third-generation successor, Fulvio Maria Scavia, a multi award-winning designer-jewellery, who took home his first prize when he was just seventeen.
Over the years, this Italian name has developed into a world-class fine jewellery house, with presence in Milan, Bangkok, Tokyo, Beijing and Dubai. Through his designs, Fulvio Scavia combines sophisticated Italian craftsmanship with nature’s most precious gemstones, creating jewels that enrich the mystique of the feminine ideal.
One of Scavia’s trademarks is the mastery of sculpting platinum or white gold into elegant geometric forms punctuated by diamonds. As seen in the ruby necklace and earrings suite (Lot 1730), Scavia lavishly arranged over a hundred carats of natural Burmese rubies into a cascading necklace and matching ear-pendants. Another diamond-set ‘serpente’ parure (Lot 1609) further exhibits the skillful, three-dimensional craftsmanship of Scavia. Sitting sensuously over the feminine contours of the neck, these two suites of extremely fine hand-made jewellery instantaneously display an inimitable Italian flair.
