Like a Venetian Princess, Princess Flower belongs to the creative bouquet of the Princess family of collections. The flower made of small diamonds that decorates other Princess jewels has been reelaborated in this collection to become the focal point of each piece. It was a natural evolution for the ornamental flower to grow until it bloomed. The corolla displays all of its nuances made of gold and precious stones. Malachite, mother-of-pearl and black jade together with gold and diamonds make up the petals of every flower. The characteristic twisted wire detail is also used here once again in the internal structure of the pieces to create a three-dimensional frame that holds the flower. Both the external part of the flower and the internal structure are created with 3D technology to guarantee the perfect proportions of the elements. Then, able craftsmen assemble the jewels, one by one, flower-after-flower. This special production process makes every flower in the collection the perfect result of balance and care, just like flowers in nature.

As a whole, the collection is quite simple but Roberto Coin has embellished every detail with a frame of twisted gold thread. The combination of this simplicity with a wealth of details gives each piece in the collection a majestic aura.
The most beloved collection of instagrammers is best described by its zig-zagging lines, wide curves, pointed angles and soft tassels. Every Art Decò creation embodies the severity of geometrics and the intensity of precious stones that, in this case are proposed in unusual, original combinations. The correlation to the Art Decò style is evident in the collection’s design. The rings evoke the symmetries of the buildings of the era, while the vibrant color combinations break the classic rules of harmony just as the Art Decò visual arts did. The strong character together with the compact size of the jewels make the collection an
