FOPE jewellery will be exhibiting two exciting new 18-carat gold collections for men and women at Holland & Sherry during Concours on Savile Row (May 24-25, 2023).
Displayed within Holland & Sherry’s ground-floor glass cube will be the new Souls Rings, flexible 18-carat rings that can be worn as either contemporary commitment rings or as stylish stacking rings. Set with a range of coloured precious stones, including diamonds, rubies and sapphires, Souls Rings are made with FOPE’s unique Flex’it technology, which makes the Italian brand’s gold mesh flexible thanks to the insertion of tiny springs placed between each gold element. This flexibility makes FOPE’s rings comfortable and more versatile, because they can be worn on different fingers or stacked with other rings.
Further collections to be shown at Holland & Sherry include the new Luna range, which features FOPE’s chunkiest gold mesh design yet. The flexible statement gold necklaces and bracelets, available in 18-carat yellow, white or rose gold, will sit alongside limited-edition high-jewellery pieces that combine 18-carat gold with diamonds, and a range of core gold collections of unisex bracelets and rings.
FOPE’s head of design, Claudia Piaserico, will be hosting guests at Holland & Sherry at 1pm and 3pm each day, with a presentation about the FOPE brand, which has been creating innovative gold jewellery from its factory in Vicenza, Italy, since 1929. She will also discuss the technology behind its unique flexible gold mesh, which includes adapting robotic machinery usually only seen in car manufacturing. Piaserico will also be on the Concours central stage on Thursday at 11am, where she will be talking about the history, craftsmanship and patented technology that makes FOPE jewellery unique.
FOPE’s London flagship boutique on Bond Street will also be showcasing a wider range of collections, and will be highlighting the Concours within its windows at 1A Old Bond Street during the event.
Holland & Sherry has been supplying the most luxurious and highest-quality cloths to the finest tailors worldwide since 1836. With new premises opening at 31 Savile Row, the store will be a global flagship for its forward-thinking apparel.
