Ippolita Classico Collection 16-18" Necklace in 18k Yellow Gold.
IPPOLITA was founded in 1999 by Italian artist and designer, Ippolita Rostagno. The collection is inspired by the richness and simplicity of Italian culture.
As an artist first and a designer second, Ippolita studied sculpture for five years at the Istituto dâ€™Arte in Florence. There she learned an appreciation for the essential balance between creativity and craftsmanship. She discovered her love for jewelry in the shops on Ponte Vecchio. The uniquely Florentine look of costume-style jewelry made with fine gems would ultimately serve as the inspiration for the IPPOLITA brand aesthetic.
"I love the idea of women buying jewelry for themselves. It's wonderful to have witnessed a confidence revolution: the modern woman waits for no one, she buys jewelry for herself."
