Caspita Jewelry

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).
