Newcomer: Alessandro Sabbatini
Once a jewelry designer for Cartier, Alessandro Sabbatini established his own collection, Sabba Paris, 3 years ago, affording him the opportunity to slow down the pace of creation and work on a single design for as long as necessary to perfect his vision. His painstakingly beautiful pieces—including these flexible ear pendants set in platinum with imperial jade and Colombian emeralds—are well worth the wait.
