The Wind Rose: design and precision even in jewelry

The Wind Rose: design and precision even in jewelry

A diagram that simply represents the origin of the winds in a given area and in a certain period of time: we are talking about the Rose of the Winds. We have heard about it, but perhaps we have never deepened its importance. Its name derives from the arrangement of the rhombuses, superimposed like the petals of a rose. For the Ancient Greeks the central reference was the Island of Zante, while in the Roman world the center of the Mediterranean had been chosen. The representation best known to us is that of 8 points, each of which identifies a cardinal point and a characteristic wind of the Mediterranean Sea. A symbol of precision, study and evolution. Suffice it to say that the compilation of a Rosa dei Venti is also one of the preliminary steps for the design of airport runways, since the best take-off and landing conditions are in the wind. Then there is a Rosa dei Venti that "shines" and is that of the Zancan collections, which have found their soul in that symbol. Wearing it could allow us to predict that "air pulls" and to leave anyway with the "wind in the stern". A journey that will take us to discover unique and vital jewels that are able to enhance the personality of the wearer. A stop in which we will learn to appreciate the perfect fusion between authentic craft techniques and the continuous investment in modern and cutting-edge technologies. At the end we will be enriched by funny and colorful creations, elaborated with an absolute attention to detail.
