When I think summer jewelry, I tend to gravitate toward bright colors: turquoise and coral, punchy pinks and yellows. Ti Sento Milano’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection has got that and more in spades. The European fashion jewelry brand based in Amsterdam is celebrating its 10th anniversary with the Portofino Collection. Inspired by the surroundings and Mediterranean climate of Portofino, Italy, its pieces feature oceanic hues and bright pinks, peaches, and yellows, decorated with touches of yellow and rose gold.
I adore the line, not only for its colorful design and gorgeous aesthetic, but for its affordability and ease of wear—the ability to mix and match or just pile everything on at once. The Portofino Collection pieces (particularly the earrings pictured below) would be fabulous travelling companions on my summer trip to Italy, no?
“Ti Sento Milano brings elegance, luxury and affordability to the fashion jewelry industry,” says Claudio Garcia, president of Ti Sento Milano Americas. “The line is designed by a team of spectacular European designers, all inspired by global fashion trends. We view Ti Sento Milano as an expression of each designer’s unique style—always evolving and effortlessly chic. After 10 very successful years in Europe, the brand is a proven winner and we’re excited to share Ti Sento’s vision with North American customers.”
To keep the obsession going well into the fall, here’s a sneak peek at the Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, available in August:
Dubbed “La Bella Vita,” the collection comprises designs inspired by the open lines of Florence, Italy’s buildings and bridges. You’ll find an array of sterling silver pieces detailed with ruthenium and featuring pyramid-shape stones with a black, chocolate, and bordeaux color scheme. The pieces, an ode to the city’s Renaissance period, are accented with yellow and rose gold plating.
