Roberto Demeglio To Launch New 18k Gold Collection In Las Vegas
New York, NY—Roberto Demeglio, the Italian jewelry designer renowned for his ceramic collections, is moving into 18k gold and will unveil his new Pura 18K Gold Collection in Las Vegas at the LUXURY/JCK Show, booth LUX1221, from May 30 - June 4.
Pura Gold is an extension of the Pura line, originally black or white ceramic accented with diamonds. The gold collection was designed to attract the buyer who prefers a more traditional look. The collection offers the same flexibility as its ceramic counterpart, moving and twisting with no clasp, and includes 18k yellow, white, and rose gold bracelets and rings. The designs are accented with either black, white, or champagne diamonds, on a flexible patented stretch steel coil. The size and thickness of the bracelets, in particular, are designed to stack with other pieces. Retail prices for bracelets begin at $3900 and rings at $1598.
Says Amit Sofer, U.S. distributor, “We are very excited about this new collection because it appeals to a much wider audience. Everyone understands gold, but not everyone understands ceramic.”
