Dolce & Gabbana Alta Gioielleria: Masterpieces of High Jewellery (Hardcover)
Not Yet Published... Can be pre-ordered
The first book celebrating Dolce & Gabbana Alta Gioielleria, a kaleidoscope of creativity in which formal invention is accompanied by rediscovery of historical Italian craftsmanship.
Dolce & Gabbana Alta Gioielleria (High Jewelry) inaugurated its first collection in Taormina in 2012. Ten years after that memorable date, the fashion house has decided to celebrate this precious universe of art, beauty, and knowledge in a book for the first time.
The creations of Dolce & Gabbana Alta Gioielleria have always been one-off pieces. While the exceptional quality of gems and diamonds is certified by the most renowned international gemological institutes, the goldsmithery—which is carried out entirely by hand in the brand’s workshops by skilled goldsmiths—reinterprets highly refined processes, such as millegrain, filigree, and twisted wire.
It embodies an extraordinary heritage of tradition and know-how, forging material to transform it into a work of art. Miniatures, enamels, corals, and marvelous gems from the most important deposits in the world and magnificent diamonds, some of which are characterized by the unprecedented Dolce & Gabbana cut, are the absolute stars of this volume. Edited by Carol Woolton, it reveals the unique creations of Dolce & Gabbana Alta Gioielleria to the general public for the first time.
