Roberto Coin’s newest collection, Palazzo Ducale, was inspired by the Doge’s Palace in Venice, Italy where the designer himself is originally from. The Doge’s Palace is a beautiful, ornate palace and is a focal point in Venice, just as these pieces of jewelry are when they enter a room. The Doge’s Palace inspired the use of geometric shapes and the layering of materials and colors in this collection. It also harnesses the chiaroscuro marble and stone decoration that is typical of Venetian Gothic architecture. The exterior of the Doge’s Palace is a light pink color from the pink Verona marble that constructs the sides of the palace, this is the reason rose gold is used frequently in the Palazzo Ducale collection.
Roberto Coin, who spends a lot of his time in Venice, uses black and white diamonds with brushed rose gold to portray the differing colors and textures on the ornate palace. The Doge’s Palace is one of Roberto Coin’s favorite architectural landmarks in Italy, which is why Palazzo Ducale is a special collection that was designed with much consideration and care. This collection pays close attention to detail in each ring, necklace, and bracelet. This 8th century palace has been added on to and rebuilt many times throughout the years, each time with just as much detail as the original architecture. In old Venetian culture, an extravagant and elaborate palace represented luxury and wealth. Palazzo Ducale bestows all of these features along with elegance and beauty.
