PALM ANGELS PRESENTS NEW COLLECTION ‘NOCTURNAL ANGELS’
Inspired by Nature when during the night it awakens with indefinite nocturnal noises, Palm Angels presents for the first time ever a collection of High Jewelry that transfers, through a one-off outstanding array of four pieces only, the brands eclectic vision made of self-sustaining contrasts. Originality meets audacity in this one-of-a kind launch to writing a new but as always brave chapter of Palm Angels.
Francesco Ragazzis’ vision of a high jewelry collection by Palm Angels has been realised through a close collaboration with the designer and master jeweller Duffy. The collection designs, birthed from a mutual love of the art of fine jewelry, are a truly genuine collaboration that allowed both creatives to make their personal mark: Francesco pushed Duffy into a specific world of symbols and colors, whilst Duffy in turn championed the use of mixed precious metals and excellently crafted each of the four pieces in his atelier in London.
Palm Angels High Jewelry collection is a hymn to the beauty of the opposites that attract each other, voicing the antithesis, the day and the night, the light and the dark, and a culture steeped in elements that live in reality but also in dreams.
‘Creating a collection of High Jewelry, is a dream come true. I have always been fascinated by the art of jewelry especially the oldest one, where expert hands translated in singular precious objects their knowledge of ancient symbols. Every piece told a story that in the tradition of the sixteenth through eighteenth-century was related to the ‘memento mori’ as a reminder to the transience of life. Together with Duffy, we wanted to especially interpret this feature, and I believe that the result is extraordinary’, affirms Francesco Ragazzi, Founder and Creative Director of Palm Angels.
Every piece of the Palm Angels High Jewelry collection is handcrafted and has a name that refers to rhetorical figures, antithetical poles that tell us a story about myths and beliefs.
