Augusta earrings are a dramatic and ethereal reinterpretation of the feminine beauty in silver and gold. The feminine figure is framed in a curved scenario with a strong appeal to the Art Nouveau movement with contemporary lightness. As a result, we have a strong aesthetic effect, resulting in jewels that are delicate and playful.
Following our tendency to honor historical artists, especially female, the name was given in honor of Augusta Savage which was an American sculptor who became known for her notable works and the fight against racial inequality.
The Collection IV is based on the Art Nouveau artistic and social movement. The movement dates from 1890-1920 and has as a philosophy the rescue of beauty in its most elementary form: nature and the feminine form.
Art Nouveau was born in a rapid social changes period where people discovered new ways of seeing life (films and photographs) meanwhile living through the beauty and evil of the Industrial Revolution. Art Nouveau presents itself as a countermovement to industrialization fighting against the loss of individuality and beauty.
Nowadays, one hundred years from the movement, Art Nouveau’s philosophy is current: we see an immediate need to slow down industrialization, ourselves and excessive consumption.
POES found in the movement the inspiration for a collection rich in feminine forms and with nods to the Art Nouveau jewelry but reinterpreted to the contemporary lifestyle and fashion.
The philosophy of the movement is also our inspiration to our’s brand philosophy. We believe in the need for a daily dose of beauty and art, as well as conscious consumption through durable goods and timeless style.
Collection IV does not follow any contemporary trend. It follows the oldest trend in accessories: our need for beauty and our seek for differentiation.
