April 22 is Earth Day, a date that has occurred since the distant 1970s, but which, more than ever, touches people's sensitivity in an increasingly involving way. To celebrate the anniversary, Pomellato has created a capsule collection that tells a story of sustainability, through the use of materials from sustainable and socially responsible sources. Chilean lapis lazuli and Tanzanian ruby are combined with the brilliance of Colombian Fairmined rose gold to create new models - a ring, a bracelet and a pair of earrings - with a luxurious and attractive design, in line with the iconic and bold style of the maison. The Pomellato team, dedicated to the purchase of gems, chose Chilean lapis lazuli because of its percentage of lazurite, which infuses the stone with a blue color with unmistakable shades that recall the texture of denim. Fairmined rose gold, on the other hand, comes from traceable artisanal mines, which guarantee safe working conditions, the absence of child labor and the environmental sustainability of the extraction. Strictly limited edition, the jewels can only be ordered on the Pomellato website. Each of them is accompanied by a "passport of origin" which guarantees total traceability, from the mine to the finished product.
