Roman jewelry designer Fabio Salini is known for his avant-garde designs and ultra-contemporary style. This beautiful necklace mixes green shagreen and emeralds, an unusual but surprising combination. The intense green emerald is set in a diamond piece that connects the shagreen choker.

At first glance, it might look like a classic emerald ring, but it has a unique Boghossian touch. The Colombian emerald cut emerald is set on four baguette cut beryl gemstones. The setting is also quite different. Emerald-set white gold shanks twist and curl, ending in sharp tips, almost like vine tendrils.
