Caspita is a Swiss luxury jewelry brand created by Arlène Bonnant. The jewelry are real pieces of art with geometric shapes which remind me Moorish patterns. I love the Caspita jewelry’s geometry and colours. The shapes are very inspired and original. If you like Oriental and Indian geometrical patterns you would like Caspita. Besides, “Caspita” is a lovely and great name. It is an italian word which means in french “ma parole!” and in english “good heavens!”.

This geometric figure is called an “eight-pointed star” ; it is formed by two overlapping squares. This form is a very famous pattern in the islamic arts. It symbolises the synthese between the circle (symbol of the divin, of the origin and of the perfection) and the square (symbol of the earthly and of the creation).
Iris (rainbow in Greek) is the rainbow deesse and messager of the gods. She is charged to deliver the divine messages to the mortals. The rainbow is the Iris manifestation ; it is the bridge between the earth and the sky. To the poets, the rainbow is the track of the Iris’s foot when she descends quickly from the Olympus to the earth. They also name the rainbow as the Iris’s scarf.
