"Inspired by the beautiful turquoise sea, golden sandy beaches and the colours of the Mediterranean."
What better place to wear gemstones ranging from the most vivid of blues to pastel shades of pink than the Maldives? It's places like these that make you want to put away the diamonds, the bling and the sparkles - there's no place for them in laidback island paradise. Instead, I find myself reaching for pieces that make me think of nature. Featuring semi-precious gemstones such as chalcedony and rose quartz, Donatella Balsamo's Sardinia collection evokes such a strong sense of the ocean, you'll be wishing you were frolicking on a beach in Italy or relaxing to the sound of the waves in Bali. Or perhaps, like me, stuffing your face with coconuts in the Maldives. In style, of course.
