A Contemporary Collection Inspired by Ancient Beauty
Drawing upon the rich visual culture of the ancient civilization of the Phoenicians, Raressimo’s collection of jewelry pieces and scarves evokes the opulent beauty of the past while remaining thoroughly contemporary.
Our Phoenician selection includes themes from the period including Egyptian influenced symbolism, as well as religious, plant, animal and geometric motifs, all translated into contemporary jewelry and style.
The extraordinary traditions of jewelry making, the production of purple dye and textile dyeing from this region are creatively translated into modern day wearable works of art including modern jewelry and inventive silk scarves , reflecting the legacy of the Silk Road.
Our unique designs include exquisite necklaces embellished with beautiful symbolic detailed pendants, offset with varied gemstones arranged in harmony and newly designed scarves decorated with themes and images in the Phoenician style.
In all of the vibrant pieces in this collection, we see a modern reflection of the Phoenicians tendency to use semi-precious colored stones, fine metalwork and gold accents. For instance, our granulated motif necklace is a new interpretation of the ancient granulated technique. As well our scarves are richly illustrated with themes from the period and all of the items tied to the tradition of textile arts in Phoenician culture, namely their affinity for the rich imperial purple dye for which they were famous and was at the center of their trading culture.
All of the remarkable pieces in this collection are a reflection of the vibrant and diverse visual culture of this ancient world, mirroring Phoenician art and craftsmanship.
