Personalization, Upcycling & the Insta-Era

With The Influencer Earrings, the customer takes center stage to create and customize earrings in completely new ways. It’s a wearable, sharable platform for customers to innovate and also upcycle, using both new pieces and what they already have, to give their jewelry collections fresh life.

“We are always interested in new forms of personal curation and expression, and the time seemed right for The Influencers concept. In the pervasive Instagram culture in which we live, many of us scripting our lives as a personal brand of sorts: we experience style, meaning, expression and novelty as narrative elements, and all of these things play into what we choose to wear and post…and ultimately, to the life behind this image we create and project” said Patti Pagliei, company founder, co-CEO and creative director at Waxing Poetic.

She continues, “Curating your own looks from our individual handcrafted designs is something that is central in Waxing Poetic’s DNA – the thing that has given us our cult status, so the addition of The Influencers builds on the concept that we are never finished, but always ‘waxing’ or becoming who we are truly meant to be, a full expression of self.”

The line highlights global, community-themed collections, including a conservation awareness line inspired by Patti’s recent trip to Kenya with her husband and Co-CEO of Waxing Poetic, John Simpson to learn more about the human/wildlife conflict firsthand through Save the Elephants.

“Our line is always evolving and this new release builds on the key elements of our brand: meaning, versatility, and the ability to create individualized looks. Not many brands can do that. We’ve really carved a niche for ourselves in the market- unique, attainably priced sterling silver that is made by hand. Nothing can take the place of human touch,” said Patti’s sister and Co-Founder, Lizanne Pagliei Hales, Head of Business Development at Waxing Poetic.

Lizanne continues, “This brings versatility to our wholesale and retail partners, where they too can honor the customer and their creativity. Our line shows the intention, craftsmanship and love that we put into each piece, from the design work in California to the artisans in Indonesia.”

It’s more than interesting, it’s unexpected, and we can’t wait to see what our customers and collectors put together.

Antonini Celebrates 100th Anniversary

Anniversary100 is a collection made completely in gleaming gold.

mm

Published

on

(PRESS RELEASE) MILAN — Antonini celebrates its century-spanning history with a significant collection in terms of both its wide and the bold choice made in the use of materials. Faithful to its history, which has seen the exclusive use of gold and diamonds for the ‘ready to wear’ collections, Sergio Antonini – the creative director of the brand – when designing the collection, he had in mind the malleability of gold and its most striking feature, which since antiquity and over the centuries has made it an immediately recognizable element: its sheen.

Anniversary100 is a collection made completely in gleaming gold, be it yellow gold or white gold, embellished with subtle waves of diamonds that underline the sensual profiles or some hidden details of the jewels. Soft and supple shapes recall those of the ‘Anniversary’ collection – one of the most iconic and successful collections in the brand’s recent history, designed in 2009 for the company’s 90th anniversary. Very long chains, rings and earrings that shine amongst garments and hair and reveal even brighter stones set at a 45-degree angle. In the more luxe version, in white gold, the surface is completely covered with valuable F-color diamonds that are exceptionally brilliant and sparkly.

Antonini’s dual soul is reflected in the two variants that each of its collections are organized into: yellow gold and white gold, to meet the taste of their markets of reference. From the US that loves white gold and imposing sizes, to Japan that prefers minimal jewelry, passing through the countries of the Russian area where the more traditional yellow gold triumphs.

Since 1919 in the heart of Milan: this is the Antonini story, a company which for three generations has been making jewelry with a unique and recognizable design, directly influenced by the motivation that the city offers, architecture, design and contemporary art, all passions that Sergio Antonini enjoys in his daily life. Beauty and culture are distinctive elements of the showroom in Piazza Borromeo 12: a place of a poignant artistic enchantment, a circle of extraordinary frescoes from the fifteenth century situated in an architectural context that has its roots in the history of the city. In a district where the medieval guilds had their own laboratories, giving the neighborhood its well-known street names: via Orefici, via Moneta, via Zecca, via del Bollo, via Spadari, via Armorari… In such a context, only exclusive creations such as those of Antonini can be made.
