The Unnamed Society x S by Salanitro gives a contemporary interpretation to the primeval symbol of The Protective Eye.
Talisman unites the finest materials and craftsmanship in high jewellery and gem-setting to create the most exclusive expression of The Protective Eye.
Talisman transcends jewellery. It is the sign of an intimate connection.
“We believe we choose jewellery for its beauty and the fascination it holds for us.
But what if it wasn’t really our choice to make? Talisman chooses you, not the other way around.”
The Unnamed Society and S by Salanitrotogether unveiled TALISMAN, a unique pendant, a piece of exquisite jewellery that is an extraordinary alignment of inspired aesthetics, precious materials and exceptional gem-setting artistry. This new chapter demonstrates once again the rare knack of The Unnamed Society to draw inspiration from millennia-old symbolism and give it a contemporary reinterpretation, in tune with the millennium.
The Protective Eye
The Protective Eye: The timeless, mystical symbol of the all-seeing, all-knowing eye that channels powers beyond our understanding. The eye we wish we always had. Call it a benevolent presence, it always leads to make the right call, intuitively. The spirit animal of The Unnamed Society is the owl, its piercing eyes see right through darkness, nothing can hide from it. There is some of that in Talisman, too.
Much more than a jewel, TALISMAN is the protective eye that watches over us, guides us. An ally and a companion who sees before we do the infinite possibilities of what is ahead – and opens our inner eye to them.
Talisman transcends the notion of jewellery beyond that of a personal ornament or statement – it’s about a connection. Talisman is such an expression of individualism that it makes you wonder: am I the one choosing my Talisman or is the Talisman choosing me?
Uncompromisingly inclusive, uncompromisingly exclusive
Talisman transcends genders, too. If inclusiveness is the common denominator that opens Talisman to all who see what it stands for, exclusiveness at its highest level is what defines Talisman.
It is the timelessness of a primeval symbol, reinterpreted as a creation of and for its time: Talisman brings together the noblest materials, juxtaposing colours, shapes and textures that touch all the senses, evoking emotions in unexpected and unsuspected ways, in unique combinations that mirror the wearer’s unique personality. Each Talisman is a painstakingly handcrafted piece of individuality that blends the precious and rare with the legitimately personal.
Yellow, white or rose gold. Titanium, raw or PVD-coated. Amethysts. White diamonds, black diamonds and brown diamonds. Orange sapphires, yellow sapphires and blue ones, too. Rubies and tsavorites… fantastical materials that fire up the imagination and hint at the limitless possibilities of personal expression for Talisman. The number and combination of gems selected, the type of setting and the metal finish chosen – they all, too, create a unique connection with the wearer. The colour of the Protective Eye, naturally, is a choice left entirely to the wearer-to-be.
The Unnamed Society x S by Salanitro Touch – an inspired, unprecedented approach to high jewellery
Talisman is the latest chapter in the unfolding story of The Unnamed Society, demonstrating yet again a rare ability to walk the tightrope between tradition and innovation towards the creation of something truly new, precious and special in every facet. Talisman’s boldness of creative expression deconstructs tradition, reinterpreting it into something new, precious and rare with a legitimacy of its own.
S by Salanitro believes that innovation serves tradition and brings into play the most advanced technologies, like 3D printing, for instance, to create the most life-like irises. Each Talisman, already unique by its design and the choice of materials, is rendered truly fascinating by the combination of time, precision and passion that goes into crafting it. The mastery of high jewellery design and gem-setting techniques is amplified to reveal even more of what lies deep within the precious metals and gemstones. With sensitivity for the beauty of Earth’s most precious gifts, The Unnamed Society and S by Salanitro succeed in liberating what has always wanted to come out – but simply couldn’t because conventional approaches wouldn’t let them.
