Tiffany Introduces Paloma’s Olive Leaf
Renowned designer Paloma Picasso creates a stunning new jewellery collection inspired by the olive branch as a symbol of peace and abundance.
The new collection, Paloma’s Olive Leaf, captures elements from the olive groves surrounding her home in Morocco, a place of serenity, and also represents a link to her name. â€œPaloma means dove in Spanish,â€ she says. â€œWe are all familiar with the dove carrying an olive branch as a peace offering. The jewellery I’ve created pays tribute both to the messenger’s noble mission and gardens as a refuge of peace and tranquility.â€
The collection is sumptuous yet delicate, a garden of precious metals shot with gemstones. A bib necklace traces the tender leaves and stems in an intricate, openwork pattern of brilliant green tsavorites and 18 karat gold. This elegant profusion of leaves forges pendants in gleaming gold or sterling silver, as well as one-of-a-kind rings in 18 karat white gold and diamonds. Gold cuffs echo the ancient olive wreathes that crowned the glorious and victorious.
Paloma’s Olive Leaf is available at Tiffany & Co. Vancouver locations: downtown (723 Burrard Street), Oakridge Centre (650 W. 41st Avenue) and Holt Renfrew (737 Dunsmuir Street), from the Tiffany website at www.tiffany.ca or by calling 1-800-265-1251.
