Establishing the jewelry line
After experiencing a lot of victories, challenges and other key points in the brand’s history, the brand has ventured out into forming different lines to either expand their “fashion territory” or target a specific market. Who could forget the famous D&G line, right? Sadly, due to some conditions that the brand faced, they had to stop the operations of the line.
But as they say, as one door closes, another opens. For Dolce & Gabbana, that new opened door was the beginning of their very own jewelry line, which was established and launched in the same year D&G was shut down: 2011. On that year, 80 pieces of introductory products were released by the jewelry line, composed of charm bracelets, necklaces, and bejeweled rosaries. Following the brand’s principles and vision from the beginning, the jewelry pieces they released have captivated the right design and style that could evoke emotion and stir awe in jewelry lovers.
The Dolce & Gabbana signature style
We’ve seen outlandish jewelry matching various outfits from Dolce & Gabbana countless of times—in the magazine, television, and on the runway. Each time, the brand nails the right design and style to choose—stuff like Christmas bauble earrings, huge pendants with colorful hues, and headdresses that highlight the exotic beauty of the brand’s style.
With the countless “practices” of the brand on what looks beautiful with dashing clothing, it’s not a surprise that it has come out with the boldest pieces in the history of high jewelry. One example would be the 2013 collection that caused quite a stir and earned the brand many criticisms. Dolce & Gabbana responded with the issues, highlighting that they draw their pieces from inspirations that still capture respect. While that issue didn’t easily die down, it proved that at the core of the brand’s controversial designs is the guts of the label to bring in bold designs to the market.
Many other collections have also shown the commitment of Dolce & Gabbana to high jewelry. One of those is the Alta Gioielleria collection which is composed of 32 jewelry items that are 100% unique, as they were handcrafted by the brand’s artisans. It also features pieces for men, which the brand also adopted for their jewelry line—the presence of pieces for the gents. One of Alta Gioielleria’s pieces is a brooch that imitates a male profile so excellently that it’s almost lifelike. Details like the facial expression and hair have been done excellently by hand, adding in beautiful eltius coral and adorned with aquamarine and amethyst, too.
Another collection from Dolce & Gabbana that is worthy of admiration is the King Collection, recently launched by the brand as part of its Fine Jewelry Line. In this collection, the fine gold metalwork of the brand is highlighted, featuring complicated techniques such as braided wires and engravings, hand-carved reliefs, faceting and openwork. Added to the beauty of the metalwork are precious gems that bring sparkles and an air of luxe to the pieces. From its name, “King”, the collection showcases regal pieces like necklaces and cufflinks with golden crowns in them, detailed with engraved lilies and completed with sapphires and rubies. Other items in the collection are inspired by Sicily, hence, containing details like olive branches and the Trinacria.
There’s no way someone would not recognize the name “Dolce & Gabbana.” The brand has been a real superstar in the world of fashion, not only with their fabulous clothing items, but with their breath-taking jewelry pieces as well. While trends change, the brand change as well, yet they maintain the unique quality they are known for—so we expect to see more of the exotic and out-of-this-world designs of the fashion duo, especially in their dazzling and sparkling jewelry collections.
