December 23, 2019
Milan based, Pomellato fine jewelry (Beverly Hills) added some serious sparkle to André Balazs' Chateau Marmont penthouse #64 for its "High Jewelry" stylist dinner in West Hollywood.
The Chateau Marmont's infamous penthouse view of Hollywood wasn’t the only glittering scene at the Pomellato "High Jewelry" preview dinner. Hollywood's top stylists and VIPs were treated to a sit-down dinner while an artesian directly from Pomellato's Milano atelier created stunning jewels (live) on site, showing guests how pieces are individually made . The invite only holiday event twinkled with a jaw dropping display of Blue Sapphires, Rose Quartz, Obsidian and diamonds, along with gold settings.
Founded by Pino Rabolini, the Italian brand showcased collections: Iconica, Sabbia, Tango, Nudo, Armonie Minerali and Brera at the event. A signature staple of the Pomellato brand identity is having in-house goldsmith. The display or workmanship represents the daily work that hundreds of artisans craft each day to create one-of-a-kind jewels at the Pomellato Milano headquarters.

Established in 1967, Pomellato has built a reputation for combining rounded, sensuous shapes and tactile gemstone cuts with spectacular color combinations. The brand originated from generations of goldsmiths and stands out for its expert techniques, such as micro-fusion. Also known as lost-wax casting, the process dates to 3500 B.C., and allows the soft lines and voluminous, flowing shapes that define the Pomellato style.
French holding company, Kering is the umbrella company that oversees the Pomellato label along with other luxury mega brands such as Gucci, Brioni and Alexander McQueen, Boucheron and Dodo. The Kering Group acquired Pomellato in 2013.
