Many gems and minerals have been long associated with mystical and magical properties. On my world travels I search for unique accessories particularly those made of minerals and semi-precious stones. These exquisite objets have an added value, as they combine what mother nature offers us with design and craftsmanship resulting in an original item that is highly desirable and collectible. On a memorable visit to Florence I wandered by chance into the boutique and design studio of Pestelli who are jewellers for many generations. Using traditional techniques they incorporate minerals, silver, gold and semi-precious stones which result in the most magnificent, and rare accessories for the home. Every trip to Europe is an opportunity to source an exceptional artisan and develop a bond which is based on the love of design. Whether you crave one statement gem or desire to build a collection, Maison Nurita offers an extensive selection of these exotic curiosities.
