Catene, which means chains in Italian, is a contemporary collection of luxurious, chain-inspired jewels that pays tribute to Pomellato’s passion for this classic jewellery staple. Drawing on Pomellato’s rich heritage of craftsmanship, Catene forges a new look for a younger, fashion-forward audience that is bold in its simplicity yet gentle in its sinuous, sweeping forms.
At the heart of Catene is the house’s famous flexible ‘gourmette’ chain link, now combined with rigid elements in easy-to-wear proportions.
The bracelets feature five gold links, which, like a real chain, are fully mobile, contrasting with the solid gold underside of the hinged bangle for a pleasing combination of textures and movement. As you would expect from a chain, the central ‘gourmette’ links of the rings are also flexible, adding to their tactile appeal. The earrings, a discreet way to wear a piece of jewellery, are imbued with Pomellato’s signature chain look. The rings, bracelets and earrings are offered in rose gold, with or without diamonds, or in white gold with diamonds.
The new Catene Collection is available at Juwelier Heldwein Vienna and the Pomellato Boutique Vienna.
