Confusion Necklace ($998, Pianegonda)

Confusion Necklace ($998, Pianegonda)

Yes, the necklace pictured on the left costs almost $1,000. What can I say? Pianegonda is one of my favorite jewelry designers of all time and this love of mine comes with a hefty price tag–literally.

Connection Rings ($250, Pianegonda)

Connection Rings ($250, Pianegonda)

Pianegonda’s line is divided into several themes. Examples include the keys, hearts and crosses combination featured on the ‘Confusion’ necklace and the circular elements that dominate the “Circle Light” and “Connection” collections.

There is something very futuristic in a lot of Pianegonda’s designs. Modern and abstract are the first words that come to mind, so don’t expect to find angel pendants or flower brooches in his collection. With that said, many of Pianegonda’s pieces are especially relevant in this year of geometry-inspired jewelry

At several hundred dollars a pop, rest assured that the quality of the work is superior, as it should be considering the price tag. Keep in mind also the fact that Pianegonda’s work has a unique look that is difficult to confuse with that of many other fine jewelry designers. In fact, my Pianegonda pieces are the source of more compliments, comments and questions than any other jewelry that I own.

Irregular Choice Bracelet ($465, Pianegonda)

No, this is not exactly recession-friendly jewelry. It is simply stunning jewelry. And such a splurge is exactly what you need sometimes. Even if it means putting the good old piggy bank back to use.
