Focused on rings and earcuffs for a decade, establishing the Berbere collection as a signature design, it is now time to reveal a new Module Pendant to complete the collection and pay tribute to the collection’s essence and emblematic codes.
A tribute to the iconic Berbere Module paved ring: This new pendant offers a bold reinterpretation of the decomposed Berbere signature ring. Playing with contrast between void and full, the pendant showcases every key element of the ring: the plain gold circle, the line of paving diamonds, the signature bar. Faithful to the collection’s avant-garde spirit, the unexpected double-chain brings character to this unconventional yet easy-to-wear pendant.
Berbere is an iconic collection of the Maison Repossi. It features the repetition of a minimalist gold line to be worn as a second skin, reinterpreting the native tattoos of the Tuareg Berbers, nomads inhabiting the Northern African desert. The collection is also inspired by modern and contemporary art, referring to minimalist artist Donald Judd and his repetitive shapes.
Repossi, Maison of High Jewellery and Fine Jewelry, has been perpetuating the family creative heritage for three generations. A family jewellery tradition inherited from the origins of the Maison, in Turin in 1957; where Costantino Repossi, after studying industrial design and with a strong taste for Art Deco, opened his first boutique. The story continued when his son Alberto gave Repossi an international dimension by setting up in Monte Carlo at the end of the 1970s and became the official jeweller to the Monegasque crown.
From the glamour of the 1980s to the elegance of the Parisian avantgarde, where the House moved to Place Vendôme in 1986, Repossi was anchored in its time and renewed itself, constantly offering a new incarnation of jewellery. Regenerated by the vision of Gaia Repossi, Creative Director since 2007, Repossi reinvents traditional jewellery codes, blending primitive jewellery with modern art and architecture for bold pieces intended to be worn as a precious second skin or as “Art à Porter”.
Particularly renowned today, his emblematic collections play on systems, subtle paradoxes such as full and empty, like Serti sur Vide, recognisable by its floating diamonds, Antifer with its sharp peaks and angles, or Berbère, a repetition of minimalist lines. Timeless creations with resolutely bold and architectural lines push back the limits of traditional techniques and position Repossi as the most avant-garde jewellery Maison on the Place Vendôme.
