Salvatore Ferragamo Miniature

Salvatore Ferragamo has mined its magnificent archive for inspiration to fuel its new fine jewellery collect, which has landed exclusively at the Sloane Street boutique.

The pieces are forged from white and rose gold, with black and white diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires. A whole spectrum of colours and stones, all of them chosen by expert gemologists, are cut by skilled hands and embellished with exclusive details and engravings.

The Gancio Collection

Inspired by the motif that everyone associates with the Ferragamo brand, the distinctive shape is almost like a second signature. No one really knows where the motif derived from, but some say it is derived from the shape of doorknocker on the ancient Palazzo, or the hooks used to tie up horses’ reins, of medieval Palazzo Spini Feroni, home to Ferragamo since 1938.

The Gancio gained in popularity in the Eighties both as a metal detail for bags and footwear and in more luxurious guises for watches and eyewear, becoming a familiar bridge between Ferragamo’s past and future. The necklace, earrings, ring and bracelet of the Gancio Collection all boast the same finely crafted 18-karat white gold and a plethora of ultra-pure diamonds in different carat weights (never less than 90 carats for the bracelet and an astonishing 167 carats for the necklace).

The Anemone Special Edition

The house’s famous Anemone motif, which originally appeared on a silk scarf in 1998, has become another of Ferragamo’s key pillars, with the variety and dazzling colours of anemones making them one of Salvatore Ferragamo’s favourite flowers.

These gorgeous blooms inspired the Anemone Special Edition: an exquisite new take on the poetical bouquet – with a hint of Art Nouveau style – blending the purity of gemstones with all the romanticism of flowers. This elegant matching set of three 18-karat rose gold pieces features a cascade of round stones (amethysts, topazes, onyx and black sapphires) adorned with white diamond petals.

The Miniature Collection

But, of course, it’s shoes that won the house its impeccable reputation. With incredible women and incomparable divas as his muses (he created shoes for everyone from Audrey Hepburn to Greta Garbo and Sophia Loren), his greatest inspiration always came from his enduring passion for shoes.

Every precious piece in the Miniature Collection of 18 different pendants tells an extraordinary story, evoking different moments in Salvatore Ferragamo’s creative journey, all of them miniatures of iconic footwear designs crafted by the founder between the Thirties and the Sixties.
