Antonini Unveils a Dark Side

Marking its 90th anniversary in business, Italian jeweler Antonini forged a new blackened finish on 18-karat gold finish to create a striking series of limited-edition rings. The Anniversary Dark collection rings ($1,200 to $12,000), which also come in yellow and white gold, are embedded with diamonds, and each color is available in a series of 150 numbered editions.  The softly rounded, high-polish rings reflect the brand’s signature voluptuous shapes. In addition to the Anniversary rings, Antonini also created a limited-edition series of rings called Istanbul, which were inspired by the city’s colorful surroundings and architecture. Available in the same darkened gold, white gold, and rose gold, the rings ($4,500 to $8,000) feature intricate details and diamonds and are handmade in the company’s workshops in Milan.
