I was lucky last week to visit Melbourne’s Canturi store and have a sneak peek at their upcoming bridal collection that they are launching in conjunction with their brand new store in New York.

Canturi Regina Collection

The new Regina collection features a high set central stone with pavé set diamonds. Grooves in the band, segment the channels of diamonds, while a small Australian black sapphire sits below the centre diamond as an anchor. The wedding band is designed to match and is available with full diamond segments or alternating diamond segments. Each ring has different groove widths to allow for a unique combination.

A matching men’s wedding ring is also available with or without diamonds.

Stefano Canturi launched his jewelry brand at age 21. Growing up with a love of sculpture, Canturi was inspired by the Cubism period of art. The focus of Canturi is creating classic designs with a modern edge.

He’s the man behind the jewels featured in Moulin Rouge and The Matrix and pioneered the geometric design we see so often in jewelry today.

Canturi Cubism Circular Pendant

Canturi’s bridal collection is inspired from Cubism and some of his recent designs (such as the Metropolis) are reflective of the Art Deco period.

In addition to the newly released (as of yesterday!) Regina Collection, Canturi has also designed the “Dream” diamond setting, Cubism collection featuring carre cut diamonds, Metropolis ring with split band and his classic Australian black sapphire rings featuring Australian black sapphires and white diamonds.

The pieces are made is made so each wedding band fits with any of the engagement rings.

As well as the rings, Canturi has a matching range of jewelry for a bride to wear on her wedding day. My favourite is the Cubism Circular Pendant (pictured above).

From the 7th of July, Melbourne’s Canturi store (located on Little Collins St) will be showcasing the new range in pure bridal style with a display of bridal gowns from some of the top Melbourne fashion designers- the first being Toni Maticevski. The brand new bridal collection will also be available from the 1st of July.

Canturi opens in New York (Canturi’s second US boutique after Las Vegas) on Monday 6 July at 66th and Madison Ave NY.
