The timeless aesthetics of the boule
Spherical, curvy and feminine, the boule is one of the most iconic shapes in jewellery.
Its soft profiles immediately recall an ideal of perfection, inspiring jewellery that never loses its charm and beauty over time. Brands that focus on constantly renewing traditional manufacture are those that rewrite the codes with a contemporary interpretation.
Such as Nanis, which has made the boule a distinctive element of its DNA: hand-engraved with the ancient technique of the millerisk burin, it is the main feature in several of the brand's collections. An example is the gold bead necklace that culminates in a diamond clasp, ready to be unhooked according to length to become a sensual choker as well as a classic chanel or transgressive lariat.
Goldsmith craftsmanship and design find their perfect balance in designs by Casato, such as the hyper-detailed and original BouBoulette ring: a rose gold band that encircles the fingers with spherical and Rivière diamond elements.
The Palazzo Ducale bracelet is also the result of the work of the most renowned Italian jewellery artisans. A creation in which mini gold boules are called upon to evoke the architecture of the famous Venetian palace.
