The woman is the absolute protagonist in this jewel, a human figure placed in the center of this creation.
She herself, in a more direct and less stylized representation, is an integral part of the tree that identifies life, her legs are grafted into a sturdy trunk and her arms unwind into luxuriant branches, the little one is nestled on her belly diamond, the precious life that is generated, that will be born… Suitable not only as a jewel to give as a gift on the occasion of a new birth but also to give as a gift to your mother, to your grandmother, as a symbol of that close genetic and family bond that no one will ever be able to scratch…

A balance between different themes translated into a unique jewel, second life, reuse, past and future meeting, tradition and modern technology. The idea was born precisely from wanting to combine a symbol of the future, identified by the hand, with something from the past. The hand ideally represents the metaverse, while we observe virtually we have the perception of touching what we see. The ammonite placed in the center of the pendant represents second life and reuse, a fossil of a prehistoric animal that finds new life in a jewel where matter, technique and symbols coexist in perfect harmony. The ammonite almost seems to have the appearance of a clock that marks time, the passage… On the back of the pendant the ancient divinity of the Two-Faced Janus is represented, symbol of the passage and of every new beginning, with one face turned to the past and the other looking towards the future; it seems to come out of a cave, from an archaic time, yellow gold veins superimposed on smoky quartz have the appearance of stalactites or rather of gold veins, just as precious material is born and then shaped by the hand of man.
If you are looking for a jewel that expresses your love of life, nature and family, you could choose a jewel with the symbol of the tree of life. The tree of life is an ancient symbol that represents the connection between heaven and earth, between roots and branches, between the past and the future. The tree of life is also a symbol of growth, prosperity and harmony.
There are many models of jewelry with the tree of life, from the simplest to the most elaborate ones, from those in gold to those in silver, from those with precious stones to those with crystals or pearls. You can find necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings and pendants with the tree of life, to wear alone or to combine with each other.
A jewel with the tree of life is a perfect gift for a special person, such as a mother, sister, girlfriend or friend. It’s a way of saying “I love you” and “I wish you the best”. A tree of life jewel is also a beautiful way to celebrate a birth, birthday, anniversary or graduation.
The jewel represents a journey through time, places and different forms of art; in a single piece coexists the goldsmith art of the Florentine Renaissance, the micro-mosaic in marble that recalls the ancient Roman floors and a mythological figure daughter of the ancient Greek civilization, cradle of Mediterranean culture. It is a journey through the author’s own experience, the face of Medusa recalls the themes of mythology appreciated since childhood, the material from which it was obtained is lava stone from Vesuvius and geographically leads to that Campania land to which he himself belongs through his origins, land of unique places in the world such as the ancient city of Pompeii, which through its excavations and its archaeological finds has always fascinated Ivan, hence the love for ancient Roman mosaics. The journey then continues through the goldsmith’s art that unites everything, it is clear the reference to the Florentine techniques so much appreciated, learned and perfected in a training course that took place however far from the Tuscan capital but rather in the region where his atelier lives and is based. ; that territory between the lakes of Lombardy where Ivan has learned the work he loves and which he transmits through works like this one.
Pendant in 18 kt yellow and white gold with red coral and brown diamonds.
The jewel was made entirely by hand, the clown obtained through a skilful burin engraving of the coral and the precious metal applied to it was worked through various techniques: from wax modeling and subsequent investment casting, to the tulle fretwork carried out directly on the metal .
The jewel is a unique piece that contains in small spaces a set of high craftsmanship, with only 8.45 grams of gold it is possible to see a juxtaposition of goldsmith techniques of the Florentine Renaissance to a material with warm colors typical of a Mediterranean style.
The Infinity collection was born from a collaboration between the goldsmith Ivan Barbato and the mosaicist Fabio Bordi. Originally made of bronze, the Infinity line has been enriched with new collection models in gold and silver.
It is a pendant which, thanks to the shape of the black opal and the vivacity of its colours, recalls the sea… A single color would not be enough to describe the thousand shades of art, so what more suitable gem if not an opal, what more precious metal if not gold to be able to set it, what eternally luminous stones if not diamonds.

The pendant is a perfect union between the soft lines of yellow gold and the opal incorporated in its mother rock, irregular, with warm colors. Colored reflections that emerge from the color of the earth, unique shades that make the little jewel something that cannot be repeated. A trail of small cognac diamonds, set in the noble metal, recall the shades of the rock giving further brightness, a singular combination in a small unique piece….

A delicate and unique setting envelops the blue colored gem, an oval cabochon cut lapis lazuli. The white gold alternates with the yellow one, highlighting a chromatic contrast that is well suited to the tone of the stone. A stone with a simple, linear cut, in stark contrast to the meticulous workmanship applied to the metal, the white gold is in fact finely perforated, the honeycomb workmanship that surmounts the stone is clearly visible on its surface, allowing a glimpse of the blue color through the texture of the metal, a white gold shell that develops a shape in the center that is somewhat attributable to a puzzle piece, as if to symbolize that each piece can be unique. The metal setting then proceeds in the lower part with a yellow gold cord that encircles and closes the perimeter of the lapis lazuli. A jewel as unique as the person who will wear it…
