Roberto Coin, the prominent Italian jeweler, unveils the exciting new concept in jewellery - Capri Plus - comprising of spectacular bracelets, pendants and rings with soft and tapering shapes, stone shades evoking the most beautiful sunsets of the Island of Capri, its crystal clear sea and its starry sky.

Capri Plus introduces new materials in the collection and each item is made by the best of Roberto Coin’s artisans. The materials in this collection are incidental rather than focus, yet giving strength and integrity across the range. New price points are created by using silver or wood with innovative techniques and finishes combed with colourful precious and semi precious stones that bear the instantly recognisable stamp of its ace designer, fusing innovation with extraordinary craftsmanship.

Roberto Coin, President of the brand, said: “The Capri Plus collection presents highly sophisticated designs with an appeal that is sure to be treasured. It’s not just a collection but a very special concept as this allows us to meet the exact price point with which the final consumer feels comfortable. We were able to do so by introducing new materials, new creativity, young design and most of all, beautiful colours. Capri Plus was inspired by the beauty of the island of Capri. It is a collection based on the vibrant Mediterranean colours and contrasts.”

The collection consists of bracelets that are resplendent with diamonds, beautifully faceted Capri cut coloured stones such as amethyst or stunning rich colours of cabochon, chrysoprase and orange moonstones that are complemented by black sapphires or other precious stones in pave settings. Some pieces in the collection also use topaz, rhodolite and icy diamonds set in silver, bringing affordability to a new wider customer base. The collection presents beautiful rings in yellow gold with moonstone and yellow sapphires, which would go perfectly with the pendant that accompanies the set.

One of the highlights of Capri Plus is the wood variation which presents a bangle and ring in yellow gold with wood and diamonds. Wood may seem like an unusual choice for jewllery but one look at the set is all it takes to be enthralled by this famed designer’s unique vision. A yellow gold set comprising of a bangle and a ring, teamed with black wood and studded with oval-shaped diamonds at the centre can bring that ‘bling’ factor to any outfit!

The collection also excitingly incorporates recycled and reclaimed ebony complemented by semi-precious and precious stones. The result is a stunning fresh contrast in jewels that are eye-catching and riveting as statement pieces eminently suited for everyday use. Tucked quietly out of sight, in each Capri Plus piece is a hidden red ruby, Roberto Coin’s signature element in all his collections, based on an ancient Egyptian belief that it would attract immense good luck even while bestowing protection on its wearer.
Though ‘affordable’ designer jewellery is something unthinkable in today’s world but Roberto Coin has done it! The acclaimed designer has gone against the odds and experimented with new and exciting materials to produce something that not only makes a fashion statement but is also easy on the pocket. This collection in no way compromises when it comes to materials, quality or style; it is however a concept that revolutionises designer jewellery with experimentation of new products that complement the setting and the piece. Thus the Capri Plus collection might just change the way we look at designer jewellery once and for all!
