Las Vegas, June 8th, 2010 - Industry leaders and opinion-makers present at the 2010 Couture Jewelry Show recognized Damiani with one of the top honors bestowed upon the best of the jewelry industry. The Italian jewelry house received the prestigious Couture Design Award (in the Colored Gemstones over $20K category) during the 15th annual award ceremony held at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas on Saturday, June 5th.
The spectacular Peacock Masterpiece necklace –crafted in white gold with a striking array of diamonds, sapphires and emeralds is one of the best examples of the jewelry art that has made Damiani one of the most renown and respected houses in the world. The chromatic effect of the peacock’s feathers has been masterfully recreated with over 3,500 emeralds and an equal quantity of sapphires –totaling 18.55 carats. The attention to detail, well-balanced proportions, accurately chosen gemstones and skilful execution make this necklace as alluring as the feathers of a peacock. The open-back frame of white gold and diamonds is set with feathers covered in diamonds, sapphires, and emeralds that immediately capture the eye with an explosion of color. The intricate design of the necklace includes a snap-and-lock design, which allows the longer side of the feather to be detached and be worn as a pendant or a brooch.
The Couture Design Awards are assigned by the votes of all the exhibitors, buyers and journalists attending the Couture Show, which attracts the top 300 jewelry retailers who vote for their favorite pieces in the various categories.
