My heart flutters every time I think about this team of designers from the '60's. Coppola e Toppo designs were commisioned by all the best couture houses, including Pucci and Schiaparelli. Their jewels are veritable feasts of intricate bead work in graduated color values. Shown here is one of my all time favorites. Is someone writing a book about this wonderful designer yet? We need one on these masterful jewels.
