Iosselliani - Jewelry Label
Object Lesson: Snake Charmer

Quote:
Master of the opulent, mystical, and baroque, Roman jewelry line Iosselliani follows a cultural legacy of defining beauty with the tastefully over-the-top. Established in 1997 by Paolo Giacomelli and Roberta Paolucci, the revered label melds traditional metals and gems, often layering one delicate strand upon another until an ornate piece forms an unexpected look that's misshapen, refined, and altogether enchanting. Representing one of the quieter trends of late, our top—and surprisingly affordable—pick, the silver snake bracelet, reveals the impact of one key accessory on an everyday look.
Composed of scaly, intertwined silver chains held together by four silver loops, the robust but finely detailed bracelet begs for closer inspection. Bejeweled serpent heads, glittering with semi-precious stones, hang from the sides, each one unique. The four loops bear an angular, pin-holed clasp and balance the weight of the piece with open space. Wrap it around your wrist and you'll see that with all the dangling and coiling, this is a bracelet that doesn't need any additional charms.
The silver snake bracelet ($390) is available at Honey in the Rough, 161 Rivington Street, New York, 212-228-6415.

In light of the Tom Binns thread, I thought this was appropriate since they're obviously quite inspired by his work...
But still, they have a distinct voice...

Their jewelry is so beautiful... I especially love the rings and all the pieces with claws on them... unfortunately a little out of my price range.

I LOVE Iosselliani. I bought one of their necklaces last month and I could not be happier with it. I'm planning on purchasing more of their pieces.

Iosselliani jewelry
it has become my new obsession...
i got one of their rings a few weeks ago and now i'm saving for a necklace...

Rome-based designers Paulo Giacomelli and Roberta Paolucci founded Iosselliani in 1999. The designers fuse highly romantic and baroque-inspirations in a very modern way - using layers of different textures and materials to create contrast and interest.


pearl claw ring, $325 (shoplanguage.com)


stacked snake ring, $695 (otteny.com]


5 ring set with pearl, $325 (shoplanguage.com)


multichain silver cuff, $466 (shopadele.com)


snake bangles, $395 (barneys)
