For Alessandro Sabbatini, every earring that he creates must lie beautifully on the ear, flatter the face, feel lightweight, and move gracefully with the wearer. This is no small feat, considering that the Italian designer’s elaborate jewelry often comprises hundreds of stones. To ensure that each earring, bracelet, and ring feels as beautiful as it looks, he sits in a small Paris workshop alongside his craftsmen, helpingto carry out his vision through a meticulous process that yields for his brand Sabba (available at FD Gallery, fd-gallery.com) only about 40 pieces a year. Now in its second year, Sabba has garnered a following of sophisticated collectors who appreciate the 28-year-old’s exceptional stones and high-quality artisanship. Shown here (clockwise from upper left) are amethyst earrings with diamonds and white agate; amethyst earrings with sapphires and diamonds; coral earrings with diamonds; three rings with a gray diamond, a ruby, and rubies and diamonds, respectively; and stacking bracelets with rubies and diamonds.
