Canturi Applies a Cubist Philosophy to Jewelry

Australian jewelry designer Stefano Canturi captured the spirit of the Cubism art movement in his original jewelry. His sleek, geometric forms are a composition of baguette and square-cut diamonds arranged in artistic patterns often paired with smooth black sapphire gemstones. His designs were unveiled for the first time in New York with the opening of his eponymous boutique on Madison Avenue in July. Canturi’s first U.S. store opened last year in the Palazzo Hotel in Las Vegas.

Based in Sydney, Canturi has spent the past 20 years forging artistic concepts through his jewelry designs. In contrast to classic faceted diamond jewelry and figurative forms, Canturi favors bold yet simplistic jewels that portray striking combinations of unfaceted black and white stones, and only occasionally does he employ colorful stones as accents in his jewelry. He presently has three stores in Australia: Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. (212.879.8800, www.canturi.com)
