Made in Italy: Fope’s Fantastically Flexible Jewelry

Three collections featuring the jeweler’s patented technology

A staple of Italian design, mesh jewelry—particularly in rich, polished gold—is one of those styles that feels just as good to wear as it looks. Italian jeweler Fope, a family business founded in 1929, knows that better than anyone: Its best-selling Novecento mesh design, patented by the brand in the 1970s, is still strongly featured in its collections today. And speaking of collections, some notable ones to share with you, each featuring Fope’s signature Flex’it design; the patented “roll-on” mesh jewelry is all fully flexible, featuring tiny gold springs hidden between each link.

The Solo Collection

This mesh collection—a worldwide best seller, according to Fope—features slimmer profiles than the brand’s Unica collection (a best seller in the ’90s) and adds diamond-dotted rondelles, colored stones, and a mix-and-match, major collectibility factor.

The Eka Tiny Collection

A spin-off of Fope’s Eka collection, Eka Tiny is exactly what it sounds like: a petite, scaled-down version of the flexible chains. But, according to Fope, its simplicity lies only in its aesthetic—it took the brand’s research and development team months to create these pieces.
