Wear an icon
Iconica by Pomellato features double-band rings and earrings that are symbolic as it is expressed in vibrant sapphires, emeralds, rubies and diamonds. Its audacious and sinuous forms highlight the house’s rich heritage of outstanding craftsmanship and its mastery of all-gold jewels. The double rings showcase Milanese understated elegance at its best. Two round gold coils are united by a flat transversal link: two perfect and pure forms are forever bound together to create a greater whole. Pomellato has chosen the gemstones most associated with love that speak straight to the heart. For some, sapphires evoke the purity of everlasting love and rubies the fire of passion. The soothing green of emeralds promises hope and peace while the timeless diamond is the eternal messenger of unity.
