Nemo depicts Phoenician and Greek mythology
Aug '09
Roberto Coin, the world renowned Italian jewellery brand, unveils dramatic new bracelets and rings in its popular Nemo collection featuring sea horses, those unusual and charming marine creatures endowed with an equine profile often depicted in Phoenician and Greek mythology.

Combining warm tones of yellow, rose and white gold, and highlighted by dazzling diamonds and rich enamel work Coin, founder and designer of the brand, once more indulges his fantasy to offer women a stunning array of jewels designed to instantly put them in the limelight…

Commenting on his collection Roberto Coin said, “The Nemo collection is endowed with a vibrant, colourful touch that is almost joyfully infectious. Its highly textured features and eye for detail presents jewels with a rich visual as well as tactile element. I am positive that jewellery lovers will particularly appreciate Nemo bracelets as they make glamorous statement pieces.”

In Nemo we truly witness a master stroke by the award winning designer, where he presents stylised jewels as unique pieces of art. Women will particularly be happy to slip them on for they make highly engrossing and unusual adornment. The collection's high end piece is its bold and stunning, yellow gold bracelet painstakingly recreating this fascinating creature in great detail.

Its smoothly polished equine head is highlighted by bright pink enamel eyes while it's richly diamond paved mane appears to 'float' around its head. Designed to twist itself around the wearer's wrist, in a scaled yellow gold coil, it tapers off with its white gold, diamond paved tail gently 'floating' about.

The design element is replicated in other versions such as white or rose gold pieces with diamond pave lavished on the head. Some other pieces see Coin highlight his sea horses with intense black or white enamel work, both on the head and on the scales to unveil an interesting array of bracelets and rings capturing his charming subject in a variety of 'candid' expressions to offer jewels which can match with a variety of outfits.

Interestingly, these endearing marine creatures are often found depicted in mythological Greek tales where Poseidon, the sea god is said to drive a chariot pulled by sea horses. They are also called 'Hippocamp' and often decorated mosaics and Roman baths and can be seen on the 18th century Trevi fountain in Rome. The unusual fish which swims in an upright position has one other novelty: it is the male of the species which lays the young. It takes its name from Latin for 'no man' or 'nobody'.

It is this adventurous streak to tread new realms that sets Roberto Coin in a league of exceptionally gifted jewellery designers whose art celebrates a woman's quest for beauty. Nemo is part of his Animalier collection featuring a variety of other animal subjects such as giraffes, cobras, bald eagles and lizards.

Indulge your fantasies with Roberto Coin's Nemo collection available at its flagship Roberto Coin Boutique at Wafi City Mall and at select Damas Les Exclusives Boutiques in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, and Kuwait.
