VOLUTE

Volute is a term that originated in the French language, denoting the

pattern of a snail’s shell used in artistic ornaments, predominantly

within architecture. This ornamental form was commonly employed

during the period of High Renaissance and especially in baroque

art and architecture. The pieces in this collection reveal their volute

only at second glance, lending a certain aura of sophistication and

romance to the jewellery.
