DESIGNER MARIA LORETTA DE TONI
Cleopatra & Antonio
The story of Cleopatra & Antonio is among the most famous love stories of all time, the source of inspiration for this collection of Gold jewellery with an exclusive design. Let yourself be enchanted by the symbol that the snake expresses, through the feminine seduction and the ancient bond of love between the Empire of Egypt and Rome. The particular acanthus leaf engraving practiced by the Vicenza goldsmiths recalls the decorations of the Domus Aurea of Roman architecture that embellishes the snake.
The myth of Lion
The Maria De Toni Brand tells about the mythical animals through its gold jewels. The main character of this collection is the Lion, the symbolic representation of the Evangelist Mark and symbol of Venice and its ancient Republic. The Lion, bearer of wisdom and Peace, is the King of animals and emphasizes strength and courage as the typical distinctive features of the Maria De Toni Srl company.
The Myth of Lion Collection is on display at the Jewellery Museum of Vicenza.
The Black Panther
The “Black Panther, the light in the night By Maria De Toni” collection, with Gold and precious stones interprets the values of the guardian of the night through the symbol of the black panther, which overcomes any fear with the feminine seduction and light emanating from his eyes. Make the night bright, thanks to your feminine energy that is released in the light of courage.
