On October 14, 2011, Ippolita opened her first in-store boutique at our very own San Francisco Neiman Marcus. The retail space reflects upon the Ippolita brand DNA, showcasing the natural materials with a sculptural touch. She now returns to San Francisco to make a personal appearance on December 2nd from 11AM-3PM. Most excitingly she brings with her visit, special exclusive pieces that travel only with Ippolita during her appearances. Adding to the holiday gift giving spirit of things, with any purchase over $3500, one would receive a pair of hammered 18k gold earrings as seen in the picture below.
“Feminine, fashion forward and wearable is what I wanted for myself and believed others would want as well,” Italian born jewelry designer, Ippolita Rostagno explains as the motivation for her namesake jewelry collection.
From growing up amongst the rolling hills of Tuscany to graduating from the esteemed Istituto D’Arte in Florence with a baccalaureate in sculpture, Ippolita has always been immersed in culture, art and beauty. After developing a special shade of gold that flatters all skin tones, Ippolita debuted her signature handmade bangles, chandelier earrings and delicate chain link necklaces in 1999. She sought to adorn women with everyday fine jewelry. Beautifully made, beautiful pieces of art but with the effortlessness of everyday. Since then every woman, from Cameron Diaz, Giselle Bundchen to your fabulous Marin mother has found the iconic raw edged jeweled bangles on her arm.
The Ippolita Trunk Show at Neiman Marcus is on December 2, 2011 from 10AM until 5PM on the 1st floor, fine jewelry and with a personal appearance from 11AM-3PM by Ippolita herself. A perfect time to pick up something haute for someone special this holiday season while also getting a little gift for yourself.
