Memory of a Briolette - gold rutilated quartz
Asymmetrical 18ct gold earrings featuring a unique rutilated quartz and gold dome on one side. On the other side, the gold captures the impression of the briolette as a fossil that recalls the memory of a present object which isn’t present anymore but leaves the impression of its beauty. The gold inclusion of the stone complements the warm colour of the 18ct gold in a perfectly balanced pair of asymmetrical statement earrings.
18ct yellow gold, rutilated quart
40mm long, the cabochon measure 7mm diameter

These earrings are part of a collaborative project with a perfume creator and a creative writer exploring the subject of fragmented memories. The collaboration found its physical space in an exhibition during Milan design week in April 2023. Each piece of jewellery is associated with a short story and a scent that all together create new narratives. The Briolette earrings are associated with this scent and story:
Acetato di linalolo
Odiavo quando per mia madre
era il tempo del cambio degli armadi. Lei si adattava alle stagioni, al loro ritmo improvvisato; io volevo che queste si accordassero
alla mia vita mononota.
I hated when for my mother
it was time to change over the wardrobe. Her, she adapted to the seasons, to their improvised rhythm; me,I wanted these to tune
to my mononote life.
