Paloma Picasso
Olive Leaf Collection


Style icon Paloma Picasso introduced her first collection of jewels for Tiffany & Co. in 1980. Her use of colorful gemstones, which brought fiery orange opals and shocking pink tourmalines into fashion, and her use of “Scribbles,” “Graffiti” and her signature “X” instantly established her as jewelry design’s newest star. The recently launched Paloma Picasso Olive Leaf collection encapsulates her design aesthetic.

Heavily influenced by her travels and her environment, it incorporates elements of the olive groves that surround Paloma's home in Morocco. “Our garden in Marrakech,” - she explains in an interview with Booth Moore of the Los Angeles Times - “has an olive grove, and it was obvious that one day it would have an influence. The olive grove has 76 trees, which are at least 300 years old. And it is what attracted us to buying the house. An olive tree never changes, meaning that the leaves never fall off. It lives with you, and you have the beauty of the trees all year long. And when you get olives, you can make your own olive oil. We make about 100 liters [around 26 gallons] each season and give it away. In the collection, I tried to echo my feeling about the olive tree and how the leaves shimmer in the wind. There’s something dainty and delicate about them, but because of the size of the leaves, it’s still a big statement. I wanted to bring that quality to the pieces, and it took a lot of work, particularly the structure of the branch holding the leaves. Hopefully, it looks kind of free-form, like it grew by itself. But on the cuff, for example, we did about six different versions with different variations of openness and spacing of the leaves before we got it right.”

The collection is sumptuous yet delicate, a garden of precious metals shot with gemstones.

A bib necklace traces the tender leaves and stems in an intricate, openwork pattern of brilliant green tsavorites and 18 karat gold. This elegant profusion of leaves forges pendants in gleaming gold or sterling silver, as well as one-of-a-kind rings in 18 karat white gold and diamonds. Gold cuffs echo the ancient olive wreathes that crowned the glorious and victorious.

The designer places beautiful and colorful gemstones among leafy branches of gold or silver. Rubellite and green peridot cabochons are entwined in ring settings of 18 karat gold with diamonds. Pear-shaped rubellites accent luxuriant drop earrings of gold and sparkling diamond leaves.

There are also earrings with perfect ovals of translucent blue topaz suspended boldly from little gold leaves. Each stone is hand cut and set maximize its radiant beauty.
