Angostura is a perfect intersection between spirituality and matter. The handmade jewel collections designed by Giulia Tavani are inspired to the world of charms and antique jewellery revisited with a contemporary touch. Underneath the product lies a bitter touch by the roughness which characterizes Giulia’s designs. After graduating in Graphic Design at the IED, she completed her academic path by achieving a diploma at Ermini’s goldsmith’s Academy in Rome. “The shattering sour note which characterizes this legendary bitter drink inspired me to name the brand anGostura; this also helped me to distance my collection from the idea of “bling” which is usually associated to antique jewellery. I decided to reinterpret traditional male and female jewel shapes, creating bronze and silver rings with a touch of bitterness. Although all of the products are extremely curated in all of their details they manage to express a sense of roughness and unkempt which give them a differentiating edge”.
