A Crystal Affair

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

If the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, then how does one get to us girls’? Yes baby, it’s the bling!
On a cool Wednesday of February 22nd 2012, Laprendo paid tribute to fine jewellery by hosting an intimate showcase of carefully curated collection from Zoccai.
Founded in 1839 as a small goldsmith’s workshop in Venice, the brand’s reputation is a solid epitome of sophisticated Italian quality, style, and tradition. The Zoccai Style impeccably interprets designs with gold and precious stones in a cornucopia of colors.
Embedded along a vibrant array of cupcakes and antique bell jars, these brilliant pieces quintessentially took center stage as wearable art.
(Overheard at the party: "Oh my God, am I at a candy shop?) 
Brilliant hues of amethyst, peridot, London topaz, citrine, and lapis lazuli were such an exquisite visual delight! They look almost edible, don't they?
The main highlight of the showcase was Zoccai’s latest collection of lush pendants, necklaces, and bracelets of laser cut mother of pearl set in gold round frames. This pinpoints a seamless harmony of advanced technology and traditional workmanship in the brand’s current design direction.
The CEO himself, Gino Zoccai made the anticipated visit to our Little Red Dot as a token of appreciation for loyal customers and avid fans of the brand. He even brought his personal collection to the exhibition: diamond encrusted jewellery set embellished in white gold and antique ceramic holy figures. The bracelet was our personal favourite. We mean, seriously – imagine decking this out to a gala dinner, slicked back updo, and a slinky silk Haider Ackermann dress? Molto bella!

The reception was a huge success with a massive turn out. We certainly wish you were here with us for this showcase (see what you’ve missed!), but fret not as we will host even more exciting events this year. So keep an eye on this space and look forward to see you next time.
