MONETA Collection

MONETA Collection The custom of setting one or more coins into objects of personal ornament, turning them into jewels, is very ancient and dates back almost to the origins, to the birth of the coin itself. This collection is a pure tribute to the LIRA, the historic Italian currency. Each coin reveals a long history, made up hand to hand transfers, travel stories, which from the past come to our days. The coins with their energy become jewels, used as pendants to enrich jewels with classic geometries, to give life to a collection with a colonial style. The basic idea for this collection is summarised in the phrase of Debra Winger, protagonist of The Sheltering Sky - a film based on a novel by Paul Bowles - when he replies to his friend Campbell Scott: "Tunner, we are not tourists, we are travellers". An essential style, feminine, yet luxurious. Nothing too strong nor too flashy. A two-tone look: where silver and gold come together perfectly.
