The SCAR/Pittura à Porter Collection Fuses Art and Luxury

They say diamonds are a girl's best friend, and now, thanks to the Pittura à Porter collection, precious stones are truly accessible for all.

The Pittura à Porter jewelry concept is striking and innovative. Translated to English, it means "painting à porter," an elegant way of bringing luxury and art to the fashion-forward-avant-garde masses. The Pittura à Porter collection consists of a series of ruby, emerald and diamond-"adorned" necklaces, bracelets and earrings that have been hand-painted on canvas. There is an additional DIY element to these almost prèt-à-porter beauties, because before wearing them, it is recommended that you cut out their shape to better fit your neckline.

The designer behind the SCAR Pittura à Porter collection is painter and ceramic artist Carmen Scarnecchia, who has been designing jewelry and other accessories under the SCAR brand name for some time.
