There's a brand new gold jewellery show coming to QVC next month, it's called Arte D'Oro and will be on air at 8pm on the 2nd of February.
This is a showcase of gorgeous, Italian-crafted gold jewellery, inspired by the latest looks coming out of Italy.
QVC's Gold Buyer Sarah Filippardos is currently in Italy, viewing the latest releases at the Vicenza Jewellery Fair. Take a look at Sarah's blog from day 1…
"All the buyers from all of the jewellery areas are excited to come to this famous Italian Jewellery Fair, but the most important collections of all are those containing gold, and none are more special than Italian gold!
The most spectacular jewellery – gemset or simple gold – is everywhere you turn. It's easy to forget just how exciting this fair is, until we walk in the doors on our first morning and the colour of the gems and the sparkle of the fine metals just hits us.
So, the first day has been so inspiring. So much to see, and so many ideas to bring to our jewellery collections. The trends are clear – rose gold is hot, in so many styles – the most simple, sophisticated chain, or polished hoop earrings, through to the gemset cocktail rings that twinkle back at us as we walk past the windows of the designer stands. Rose gold adds a soft layer of colour and is so beautifully flattering to the skin as well.
Yellow gold is also a key trend, either on its own or mixed with rose gold and white gold to add extra glamour and to bring a simple design bang up to the minute. The gold we've seen here today is textured and layered, smoothed and polished or with a satin gleam, reflecting light. Some feature lazer cutting to add sparkle or a brushed texture to add depth. Not a single piece is left untouched, and nothing is plain boring!
Time has flown by for us today as we've walked the fair, meeting often to share ideas and tell our QVC colleagues what we've seen. We're all so excited to be returning tomorrow and simply can't wait to search out new ideas to bring to our customers."
See you soon, Will x
