Fiorina ‘The Graces’ Summer 2011 jewellery collection

Old world with a modern twist would most appropriately define Fiorina’s new collection “The Graces”.

“Real coins are getting harder to come by. Everything pre-1945 was sterling silver, and I won’t use castings” says designer Fiorina Golotta of the predominant feature of her Summer 2011 range.

While coins are carried right throughout Fiorina’s collections, ‘The Graces’ harks back to the centre of mythology; the three muses: charm, beauty and joy which are translated through a palette of soft pastels mixed back with a refined yet bold use of silver.

The large silver coins manage to make a statement yet retain a perfect sense of delicacy and craftsmanship. For Fiorina, the coins function as symbols of protection from the evil eye, echoing the jewellery worn by the Tibetans. The pieces represent not only rites of passage but act as an extension of oneself.

“I love colour, I love coins and I love things that aren’t symmetrical. I also love the weight and the sound of jewellery when it’s being worn” she says. “It’s a bit kooky but still very wearable. We’ve got 90 year old clientelle and 18 year old clientelle.”

My lust-have piece is the fashionably therapeutic ‘comfort bracelet’ made predominantly of silver with a large pastel stone meant to “rest on the pressure point in the palm of your hand” to provide comfort and relief.

You can visit the Fiorina boutique at 897 High St Armadale.

    Dear Madam,

    A friend’s mother was in Melbourne last week and purchased 2 “Rosary Necklaces” with a St. Christopher attached I was wondering if you could tell me how much these are and if you post to Sydney please.

    How can Sydney customers browse stock and prices. regards Chris

  3. Click the link in the first line of the article and ask the label themselves.

    Horrible customer service, especially from the senior staff and quality of the jewlery is not great, beads they use fade and the silver tarnishes very easy which shouldn’t happen with sterling silver if you’re wearing it everyday. Completely overpriced for the quality of jewlery and customer service you receive! Very disappointing!!

  5. Hope you let them know that directly UC 🙂 As the label is probably not checking an article that was published over a year ago for comments.
