Barbara Polli

Eclecticism, dynamism and creativity. These are the words that best describe the art of Barbara Polli’s, the designer of Farnese Gioielli.
Thanks to her reflection on the differences and potential of shape, geometry and movement, Barbara Polli transmits in her creations that sensitivity which has its origins not only in the classical aesthetic codes regarding jewelry but in a newer very sophisticated and personal vision of contemporary jewels that is in perpetual evolution.

A classical art that derives without a doubt from her Roman origins “Rome for me , is home. I adore walking through the ‘Quartiere Prati’ (the Prati neighbourhood), the Piazza di Spagna (the Spanish Square) or along Via Veneto. I always mange to discover something new, a little cranny that I have never even noticed before or some hidden detail. Everything is a source of inspiration for me. Everything is art and magic because Rome is magic”. This same magic is what brings form to life in her creations for Farnese Gioielli. The colours light up and her ideas become reality thanks to her total creative liberty. These initial inspirations are then condensed in the stylistic evolution of Barbara Polli, her irrepressible passion for the refinement of detail, for the uniqueness of the crafting and for the quality of the fabrication are nearly obsessive in all the collections.

Within the collections of Farnese Gioielli, there are also the personal experiences of Barbara, her passion for the deep blue sea of the Eolie Islands, where she retreats in search of inspiration along with her long-lived enthusiasm for the grandeur of Italian Art from the majesty of classical art to the linearity and fluidity of the contemporary one.

However, above all in these collections there is her ‘personality’ made up of contradictions: strong and composed as well as sensitive and creative. Barbara loves playing with these contradictions even in her creations in fact there’s a knowledgable mixture of rigour and design, together with the use of a palette of strong and decisive colours, which enable them to satisfy the moods and needs that are all important parts of the female world.

This alchemy of design and style entirely handcrafted and Made in Italy is what gives the creations of Farnese Gioielli a natural elegance together with a clear identity and distinctiveness.
It’s a rigorous process that celebrates material, form and technique at their maximum level of expression.

Farnese Jewels is a brand of high-quality jewelry founded in Rome by Barbara Polli and Alberto Serraino in 2012. It was given its name in honour of one of the most important Italian aristocratic families, patron of scholars, artists and musicians. The maison has its headquarters in “Piazza di Spagna” in Rome. It holds patents registered in 70 countries around the World, for having created and designed the “Spine”: paved with interchangeable precious stones with the characteristic of being of a universal size that matches any ring or earring size. It’s this that makes the Spine so unique throughout the World.
