Lots by Pomellato at Sotheby's
If a Jewellery house reminds us of summer and the Italian ‘Dolce Vita’ way of life, it is Pomellato.
This Milanese brand was founded in 1967 by Pino Raboloni. He wanted to create a Jewellery house with the fashion concept of ‘Prêt-à-porter’ at its heart. From the outset, Raboloni created pieces of Jewellery that can be easily worn, day and night, and changed very often. In the 1970s, the Pomellato campaigns were shot by Helmut Newton, with their aesthetic focusing on coloured stones, facetted or cabochon, coupled with warm yellow gold. The rings can be stacked, the bracelets can be collected, and charms could be added to the curb link chains.
Amongst the many jewels created over the years, perhaps Pomellato’s most enduring designs are the Nudo ring, set with a facetted coloured stone, and their heavy fancy-link chains.
Pomellato was purchased by the luxury group Kering in 2013.
