When I first met Stefano Canturi we were both standing around in the Pitt Street paddock, Sydney's FashionCBD sipping our complimentary Taittinger Champagne at the launch of VFNO 2011. He and I were waiting for the opening speeches, and while I can't recall exactly how we struck up our first conversation; I think we quite quickly started talking about quality, creativity and craftsmanship and; hit it off immediately, and I was duly invited me over to CANTURI in Castlereagh Street for gelato and to see Stefano's fine jewellery and designs.
And here we were again, 2014, not for VFNO this time; no I am at CANTURI 80 Castlereagh Street for morning tea and the launch of the all new ETERNAL fine jewellery range. But before we can see ETERNAL, there is a surprise for all of us, the new Canturi High Jewel, a mesmerizing necklace, inspired by the ancient Greek Goddess of the Rainbow, "Iris" by Stefano Canturi, 18ct white gold, diamonds, tanzanite, garnet, rubellite; a flagship piece four years in it's creation. Concept, design, the hunting and collecting, the matching of the jewels to create such a piece. Stefano is all over it! The way each piece of the necklace looks and moves has been engineered by him, its a living piece and I love how this piece is full of the colours of life.

"Without passion there is no masterpiece". This is what Stefano says and I do believe its true.
