Pavé jewelry collection was born on a summer morning during a trip to Rome.
Lorenzo dedicated the first few hours of the morning to visiting some parts of Via Appia, the oldest among consular roads, built in 312 b.C to connect Rome to Brindisi.
One of the most interesting aspects of old roman roads is their structure: a construction method that allowed these streets to overcome hundreds of years undamaged. Roman roads are in fact made of three layers of different materials so as to ensure their stability and durability. The last layer, called pavimentum, consists of paving stones, which are polygonal slabs made of lavic stone.Their upper part is smooth, whereas their wedge-shaped underside fits firmly into the ground.
The flat and irregular shapes with rounded contours of the slabs in the pavimentum was exactly what inspired Lorenzo to come up with the lines of Pavé collection. Refined jewels consisting of flat, polygonal elements with soft and rounded contours, made of shiny and satined gold, interspersed with diamonds that enrich the jewels and remind us of the gravel between slabs in roman roads.
Pavé is therefore a celebration to the great mind of ancient Romans and their majestic roads, which represented a fertile ground for exchange between cultures and civilizations.
