Vicenza, Italy–Pasquale Bruni introduced a totally new range of fine jewelry to buyers at the Vicenzaoro trade show, concluded last week.
“I Giardini Di Lakshmi,” or Lakshmi Gardens, is inspired by the organic perfection found in nature, specifically in the sensuous shape of the lotus blossom.
Pasquale Bruni also counts the Hindu goddess Lakshmi as the collection’s inspiration, saying that she represents “light, wisdom and abundance.”
Pendants, rings, bracelets and earrings in the shape of sinuous leaves are rendered in warm 18-karat rose gold. Some are set with a luminescent pink chalcedony and diamonds.

The Italian jewelry house intends the pieces to be worn as talismans, bringing wearers “sensuality, harmony and beauty.”
Retail prices for the chalcedony pieces begin at $9,600 and go up to $40,700. The rose gold versions without stones retail between $3,400 and $8,400.
New pieces from the “Stelle in Fiore” range
In addition to the new “I Giardini Di Lakshmi” collection, Pasquale Bruni also showed extensions to some of its best-selling lines, including the diamond-pave floral collection, “Stelle in Fiore,” and the “Bon Ton” line, which features juicy cabochon gemstones.
Stelle in Fiore begins retailing at $2,400, with the most expensive piece selling for $16,200. Bon Ton, meanwhile, retails between $6,700 and $16, 170.

Pasquale Bruni also displayed new additions to the longstanding “Amore” collection, which features written messages.
The pendants, which convert to chokers, bracelets and rings, are now available in 18-karat rose gold with pink quartz, which correlates to the heart chakra, and 18-karat white gold with emeralds, which represents power.
The stones are cut into heart-shape cabochons, a new cut for the brand, and are part of the Chakra collection.
The brand said that proceeds from the sales of the new Chakra pieces will support families in the Mayvoge village in Kenya through the building of wells and medical assistance.
The Amore collection starts at $1,100 and tops off at $8,750.
The rose quartz used in the new Amore Chakra line is meant to harness the heart chakra.
