Cathy Pope Jewellery’s beautiful new collection, Amalfi, arrives in stores and online today and it’s a gorgeous take on classic Italian style. The designer is well known for her colourful gemstone-based collections but for this range she has gone for a pared-back look that takes the wearer on a romantic journey to Italy and the iconic Amalfi coast. The collection celebrates clean, modern designs that retain the nostalgic Italian feel that first captured the eye of the designer.
“When I began to conceptualize this collection, I found images of Sofia Loren in the 60s, incredibly inspirational. I saw glorious scenery of the Mediterranean Sea in my mind’s eye, framed by timeless and bold feminine fashion,” says designer Cathy Pope. She also drew inspiration from Malta and its timeless Maltese cross which has been thoughtfully featured in the collection. Classic Italian fob chains are paired with Maltese cross pendants to celebrate tradition, while the use of straight lines and simple, angular cuts give the collection a contemporary feel.
Alongside the stunning Maltese Cross pendants are gorgeous chandelier drop and stud earrings as well as elegant cocktail rings that capture the eye and the imagination. All of Cathy Pope’s pieces are carefully hand crafted to meet the designer’s exacting standards. Every piece from the Amalfi collection is available in gold or silver with gemstones including red onyx, black onyx, smoky quartz and rose quartz making for winsome features of the range. Amalfi is sure to steal many hearts this summer.
