Our specialist piece, ‘Dragon King – Ruler of the Sea’, was chosen as a finalist in the Showcase Jewellers Pearl Award Category of the JAA Australasian Jewellery Awards 2014, held in Sydney.
Lovingly handcrafted by Adriano and Tayron Scagnetti, this adaptable pearl strand piece features a hand modeled, hinged dragon’s head as the clasp, created in 18kt yellow and white gold and set with white and cognac diamonds to bring the fiery eyes to life! Spaced between the baroque Broome pearls, which form the dragon’s body, are several hand modeled 18kt yellow gold and diamond scales. Finishing the piece is an articulated yellow gold tail.
The dragon’s head can be closed on any of the pearls in the strand, creating an adaptable piece which can be worn as long necklace, shorter choker or a bracelet. This piece really is a statement of the jewellers’ art and is unique in the world.
Our piece entitled ‘Lips’, an 18kt white and rose gold ring featuring a stunning 6.11ct cushion cut tanzanite and two laser cut diamonds, was chosen to be part of the Bride to Be Reader’s Choice Award category. This ring was designed and handcrafted by Tayron Scagnetti.
