Gigi Mariani  Round Construction, 2020 Silver, 24kt yellow gold, niello, patina ring Diameter 3cm h 2,9 cm Unique and Signed Gigi Mariani works with antique, almost forgotten techniques. Using niello, a blackener with the aid of sulfur, he conceals the preciousness of the noble metal. Under the application of heat, “blood clots” and cracks appear in the surfaces — making them appear marked by age. Mariani engages his instinctive approach of using the metal surface as a canvas, incorporating he expressive medium of niello, he interrupts that surface texture through his precise, geometric forms. In addition to precious metals, the basic materials of Gigi Mariani’s jewellery include iron, copper and brass. His incredibly sculptural and geometric wearable works of art have become a testament to Mariani’s incredible attention to materiality as both a goldsmith and visual artist.

Tania Pistone Rongorongo, 2019 18kt gold and bespoke black enamel ring also available: red, white, and blue enamel 1.5 cm unique within the series   Tania Pistone’s wearable art project for the Elisabetta Cipriani Gallery came to life following the artist’s Rongorongo series, paintings which depict an imaginary alphabet on gold-leaf plates. In her Rongorongo paintings, Pistone creates symbols in a deliberate attempt to reach an ideal alphabet, which addresses our shared, collective human subconscious which she believes has been shaped by the experiences of our ancestors: ‘The modern human is unable to recover the vision of the world held by our ancient ancestors, a vision which I believe still lives within us. We can only access it is through symbols which represent a story, a colour, a number, or a star… To make a sign vibrate as a symbol our interpretative intent must be to achieve that freedom one feels after making a void. This void gives the symbol some space to activate within us, just like sound vibrations in a sound box. A soundbox cannot produce any vibrations if it is full or if it is completely closed. The sign then becomes a bridge between two worlds, where the subtle becomes […]

Giorgio Vigna Segmenti, 2015 Oxidised silver and 18 kt yellow gold ring with and South sea pearl Unique and signed Giorgio Vigna’s artistic pathway is a journey out of the ordinary expressed by the strong link between his broad artistic research and nature, and the relationship that connects form and matter. In the jewellery, as much as in his artistic production, Vigna shows his versatility. The artist creates unique pieces expressing the diverse disciplines he works with: the virtues of glass, the jewellery as sculpture, and the soul of the precious.

Rebecca Horn Shell (Neptunea Angulata), 2014 18kt pink gold ring Edition of 12 The jewelry project came to life through collaboration between the artist and Luisa del Valle, a noted goldsmith living in Spain.  After months of research, del Valle sourced rare stones, shells and ammonites to develop the concept of movement and energy central to Horn’s work. Each piece is unique, hand-made and exquisitely crafted by del Valle through the ancient Etruscan technique.  As a result of their collaboration, this jewelry is  a mélange of antiquity and contemporaneity, timeless sculptural pieces in the form of rings, earrings and necklaces which are deeply sensual.

Jannis Kounellis Labbra (Lips), 2012 18kt yellow gold lips ring 2.1 x 6 cm Edition of 12 Signed and numbered When Elisabetta Cipriani proposed the jewellery collaboration project to the noted artist Jannis Kounellis, he liked the idea of recreating his 1972 gold sculpture, which was stolen in the 1980. However, this time with an entirely different purpose, as wearable sculpture – a ring. The Labbra (Lips) ring, a cast of Kounellis’s lips, is reminiscent of the purpose of the ancient Greek masks.
