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.
