Picture the scene: late 1960s in a downtown bar in Milan, the thrum of conversation between freethinkers, artists and eccentric souls. A place of new ideas, myriad colours, textures and inspirations…

That place was Bar Jamaica, birthplace of vibrant Italian jewellery brand Pomellato, and where founder Pino Rabolini conceived the idea of a fresh, forward-thinking jewellery company. More recently its striking campaigns have featured the likes of Tilda Swinton, while its sweetie-coloured jewels flirt from the windows of the world’s most beautiful jewellery stores.

Returning to the roots of its Milan home, Pomellato recently hosted an evening at Bar Jamaica dedicated to the self-confident, independent, free, joyful and sensual women that have inspired Pino’s collections. With models lounging around the bar to a soundtrack of jazz, draped in hero designs from its collections, guests on the night included Anna Della Russo, JJ Martin and Francesca Versace.

To mark the occasion, the jewellery house also unveiled its latest campaign featuring a sultry Salma Hayek modelling new designs from its iconic Capri collection – a new incarnation of colourful ceramic and tiny gems set atop rose gold.
