Bottega Veneta Jewelry

Spring/Summer 2008 Jewelry Collection

Now, fans of Bottega's clothes, bags, and shoes can accessorize one step further with the house's new jewelry line. The bangle bracelets, available in three widths and in a combination of leather, crocodile, or wood, are designed so that the smooth silver side is always against the skin.

Saks Fifth Avenue has named this bracelet as one of the five must-have items for this spring/summer. Bottega Veneta leather is superb, and this little knot bracelet is adorable.

Bottega Veneta, a premier Italian leather goods house steeped in the traditions of the master leather craftsman of the Veneto, was founded in 1966 and headquartered in Vicenza. The fashion house has earned a reputation for unsurpassed quality. Its timeless style is exemplified in soft handcrafted handbags and its renowned intrecciato, or interwoven leather style, and signature animal prints are instantly recognizable worldwide.

The Gucci Group acquired Bottega Veneta in February 2001. Tomas Maier, who trained at the institutional Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture in Paris, and spent nine years designing for another luxury brand, Hermes, came on board as creative director of Bottega Veneta in June 2001. His first collection, Spring/Summer 2002, brought immediate critical acclaim.

Most of the jewelry is unisex. The solid sterling silver rings have notches on the sides that allow the ring to sit comfortably between the fingers. The jewelry line is available exclusively at Bottega Veneta boutiques and ranges from $420 for the sterling silver bangles to $3,000 for the sterling silver and Napa leather necklace.
