From world-renowned designer Paloma Picasso, whose reputation it is for creating distinctively bold jewellery, comes her newest collection inspired by gorgeous Venice!
Having visited as a young girl, Paloma developed a fascination for the ancient city:
“Venice is a city I feel at home in,” she said. “Its many treasures create a magical atmosphere that I wanted to capture in jewelry.”
Paloma has interpreted the city's rich history and magic in a collection with four distinct themes.

Paloma’s Goldoni is based on the ornate cast iron gates that offer a glimpse through the windows and into the courtyards of the city’s grand palazzos. The designer captures the opulence of the gates and beyond with jewelry featuring an intricate scrollwork motif inspired by the decorative ironwork of the Guggenheim Museum, the former home of art patron Peggy Guggenheim. Among the creations are necklaces of 18 karat gold embellished with diamonds and drop earrings shimmering with diamonds and colorful gemstones.
Paloma’s Luce celebrates the ornamented lanterns that are suspended from the vaulted ceilings of Venetian landmarks. Drawn to the lanterns’ spiral patterns, Paloma Picasso designs 18 karat gold and sterling silver pendants of generous scale and fluidity. She also creates cuffs, a dome ring and earrings covered with diamonds.
Paloma’s Stella combines an eight-prong star motif with the balustrades found in Venetian architecture. These elements are shaped into enchanting jewelry of shining gold stars on a background of blue enamel, and bangles and earrings in precious metals patterned after the balustrades’ elegant arches.
The designer’s flair for color is highlighted in Paloma’s Palina, a reflection of the city’s gondola mooring poles. The poles’ striped design is repeated in 18 karat gold and sterling silver jewelry with vibrant enamel including red, blue, green and orange. Worn alone or with colors combined, the rings, bangles and hoop earrings give fashion an exuberant new style.
