Gold, March–April 2016: Garavelli’s Rose Gold Drago Jewelry & More



CAN’T-MISS COLLECTION

To Ceramic, With Love

Garavelli’s Drago reticulated dragon-scale–inspired collection—which originally debuted in rose gold—now features yellow metal pieces. They also incorporate a new dark twist: black micro ceramic. “The micro ceramic is even easier to reapply than black rhodium,” says principal Elisabetta Molina. Seems no one can resist the power of the dark side!
