A maker of costume jewellery par excellence Ornella Bijoux exemplifies Italian craftsmanship.
Their collection of necklaces, earrings, bracelets, earrings and rings ooze timelessness, and their beauty perpetually seductive and beguiling. This gorgeous mother-of-pearl brooch speaks so convincingly to Ornella’s unique and fine touch.
Exquisitely detailed, the brooch’s soothing colour palate, and its dollop of clear sparking crystals give this piece a much lighter, modern feel. Perhaps her ornateness evokes certain Baroque leanings; irrespective its disarming charm, we know, will add panache to any and all lapels!
This brooch by Ornella Bijoux proudly bears all the hallmarks of Made-in-Italy.
About the Designer
In the heart of Milan, a small studio founded in 1944 is where Maria Vittoria Albani, creative director of Ornella Bijoux makes splendidly unusual costume jewellery. Petite, elegant, and with a disarming smile Maria’s many creations speak to traditions, as well to that remarkable Italian style synonymous with whispering design and an understated elegance to which we willingly succumb.
Made by hand in a plethora of materials – ceramics, woods, gold or silver painted bronze, enamelled metals, resins, sparkling crystals, Venetian glass, and semi-precious stones – every single necklace, bracelet, ring, and pair of earrings is shaped via meticulous craftsmanship using techniques and methods ordained by the “haute couture” of artisanal jewellers.
Informed by the surreal beauty of Mother Nature, and drawn to abstract art and geometric design Ornella Bijoux masters the fine balance between style, fantasy and limitless colour combinations. Fashion’s fickle trends, while taking note of them do not distract Maria Vittoria from her tried and true “recipe” of imbuing every item with that unmistakable original Italian touch giving each a long shelf life. Indeed, every piece that bears the Ornella Bijoux insignia is guaranteed to grow in beauty with the passing of years.
