Selection Stones and Pearls

s t o n e s a n d P e a r l s 0 4 4 / B a s e l w o r l d S e l e c t i o n Carlo Luca della Quercia S.R.L.’s unique pieces are quite in their element at the Baselworld showcases: somewhere they have been shown practically “forever”, says Gian Luca Illario, co-owner of the company with his brother Carlo, pointing out that “although we acquired a new ­organisation and a new name – Carlo Luca della Quercia – 12 years ago, we have been jewellers since 1920.” The corporate archives still have copies of the preparatory drawings and moulds for the creation of beautiful pieces of ­jewellery including Art Deco of the early 1920s, the more elaborate forms of the 1930s, the floral bouquet of the 1940s and Oriental-­inspired snake bracelets from the 1950s. It is in this climate, rich in ­tradition, that Carlo and Gian Luca now interpret the antique, looking ahead and successfully achieving a refreshing ­contemporary slant to the jewellery they produce today, which is sold by the world’s most exclusive jewellers. One of the traits that makes the jewellery produced by Gian Luca Illario and his staff so exclusive is that they are still able to develop new collections and bespoke pieces for demanding, sophisticated customers. “For Baselworld 2014 and its clientele we are previewing one-off pieces typical of our brand,” says sales director Carlo.
