The historic jewelry joins the iconic Gin Brand for charity …
… the exclusive limited edition cufflinks will be auctioned at the online auction held by Charity Stars
Villa Milano, historic jewelry since 1876, specializing in the creation of cufflinks, presents an exclusive collaboration with Portofino Dry Gin, the ultra-premium artisan distillate created to pay homage to the beauty of Italy and the excellence of Made in Italy. It is precisely from the union of the elements that characterize the two brands, the expertise of the Villa Milano jewelry house and the unmistakable design of the Portofino Dry Gin bottle, that two pairs of limited edition cufflinks are born.
White and yellow gold and topaz are the precious materials used by Villa Milano to reproduce the famous bottle of Portofino Dry Gin in the form of cufflinks, a symbol of that exclusive and elegant style that distinguishes the Italian spirit. The jewels are contained in an elegant brass case that reproduces the shape of a bar bottle, where gin is usually displayed. The two exclusive boxes were designed and built by G Lab, the design laboratory that produces “made to measure”.
The two pairs of twins are born for a charitable purpose: on November 17th they are auctioned at the online auction held by Charity Stars and can be purchased on offer until November 21st. Part of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to Marevivo, the Italian non-profit organization that for more than 35 years has been working for the safeguarding and protection of the sea, coasts and their inhabitants.
The lucky recipients of the two high jewelery creations will then have the opportunity to totally immerse themselves in the “Portofino experience” by staying for a weekend in Portofino, guests of the Hotel Nazionale. Here they will have the opportunity to visit the villa of the Pudel family, in which the 21 botanicals that make up Portofino Dry Gin are grown and will be invited to choose one, plant it in a part of the garden and then receive 6 bottles of this distillate at Christmas 2022 which represents now the flagship of the Ligurian Riviera in the world.
«We have chosen Villa Milano and GLab as a partner for this collaboration because they share the values of our company and the message we are trying to spread» says Ruggero Raymo – CEO and co-founder of Portofino Dry Gin. “Excellence, Made in Italy and elegance are the elements that bind us respectively to Villa Milano, a historic luxury reality that has become a symbol of Italian high jewelery and the charm of a city like Milan and, on the other hand, to GLab which represents a younger brand in which the style in the design and the care of the single piece lead to a “tailored” model ».
