Picchiotti has unveiled an exclusive piece created to celebrate the Italian fine jewellery brand’s 50th anniversary.

Titled L’Anfiteatro, the milestone marker ring encompasses a striking 8.05-carat ruby, and takes inspiration from a classic amphitheatre.

Designed by founder and chief executive officer Giuseppe Pichhiotti, the anniversary ring will make its public debut at Baselworld in a sparkling new booth location.

Representing an amphitheatre, the ring features three fans of ‘seats’ in the form of baguette diamonds, looking over the ‘star of the show’ – the ruby – which has been classified as entirely natural and rare for a stone of its size.

The brand will also unveils its 2017 collection at Basel, featuring Picchiotti Signature pieces and the company’s new and innovative Xpandable collection of rings and bracelets.
