FrontRunners: Style Points

  • Laurie Kahle

Since the 1960s, Giuseppe Picchiotti has striven to enhance the natural beauty of women with precious jewelry crafted from the finest colored gems and diamonds. Now, Picchiotti’s (www.picchiotti.it, +39.0131.95. 30.81) architecturally inspired designs can be enjoyed by men as well, with the launch of the family-owned company’s first men’s collection of cuff links, tie clips, and rings. Giuseppe, who oversees every aspect of the design and manufacturing process, has incorporated Picchiotti’s signature calibrated gems, particularly square and baguette cuts, with surprisingly understated and elegant results. Despite the use of diamonds—both alone and in combination with semiprecious stones such as onyx and lapis lazuli—the designs exude subtle elegance rather than garish glitz for the man who wants a polished finishing touch.
