Art jeweller Ornella Iannuzzi is set to launch her first wholesale collection with the aim of positioning her designs to a wider audience.
Iannuzzi launched her jewellery business five years ago, concentrating on one-of-a-kind, small production and commissioned pieces in 18ct gold, featuring gemstones such as Ethiopian opal, tourmaline and demantoid garnet.
Her first wholesale line, Les Corallines, is a diffusion collection in silver and gold vermeil. It will be launched for the trade at the Jewellery Show London in June and will also be available in 18ct gold.
Iannuzzi said she is aiming at a wider audience with the new “everyday wear” range, inspired by coral and set with pearls. The collection is based on her small production range Abyss, launched in 2008.
Iannuzzi said: “I have created the new line to offer innovative pearls and opal jewellery which remains very distinctive in style while spreading to new markets with a higher commercial aspect.”
