Rosanne Pugliese 18k & faceted rectangular smoky topaz pendant on 22k handmade chain
Rosanne Pugliese 18k yellow gold & faceted rectangular smoky topaz pendant on a 22k handmade chain. The prong-set stone measures approximately 1″ x 5/8″ & hangs from a handmade adjustable 19" chain that can also be worn at 17 1/4".
Rosanne discovered her passion for jewelry making while in the midst of a career in the fashion world. She was greatly influenced while designing for Calvin Klein, honing an eye for choosing luxurious, sensuous materials and putting them to work in clean, modern, sculptural forms.
The majority of the collection is hand wrought in 22k gold, in a small artisan workshop in NYC – even the simple, timeless hoops are worked one piece at a time by hand. In working out each design, she strives for balance in fabricating jewelry with classic, elegant proportions, while keeping a certain earthy rawness derived from gentle finishing techniques, and carefully chosen gemstones.
Running the company in an environmentally responsible way is a priority, using only recycled precious metals.
