Vicenza. Globetrotting designer, Carlo Piccolomini has always been exposed to beauty, not only in his travels around the world, but also while growing up in the family palaces between Roma and Siena or in the maternal Castle in Friuli. His love for jewels was transmitted to him by his aristocratic grandmother whose jewellery, especially the pieces by Cartier, inspired by India and the Maharajahs, he fell in love with. Each of Carlo’s jewels are classic, unique, precious and seductive, they transmit harmony and wellbeing to the touch. As you can see from the photographs of jewels from the Boteh collection, the paisley motif was inspired by antique Kashmir shawls.

Note: the Indian influence in this pair of earrings from the Boteh Collection. The enameled paisley motif is surrounded by sapphires and emerald cabochons.
