28 january 2014

Damiani recently announced it won another international award which has been chosen by Bazaar Jewelry China for the Best Annual Fine Jewelry Award 2013. The Damiani Vulcania necklace, a masterpiece in white gold and white and fancy diamonds, has been awarded the winning prize, according to press release by Damiani.
This is the second time that Damiani has won the above award - the first was obtained with the Burlesque bracelet in 2012. The winners of Bazaar Jewelry awards were voted by Chinese jewelry collectors and the readers of Bazaar Jewelry China, the most important fine jewelry magazine in China.
The inspirations of ‘Vulcania’, created with 1,370 diamonds weighing more than 110 carats in the traditional setting that Damiani calls ‘apparent chaos’, that sparkle like incandescent lava in various shades and tones of color, are seduction, charm and femininity. The necklace required more than 530 hours of work.
A further international confirmation and a new success for Damiani, valued throughout the world for the style, design and all-Italian craftsmanship of its creations. In almost 90 years of its history, Damiani has won numerous awards and is the only jewelry company in the world to have won 18 Diamonds International Awards.
