Towards the mid-1950’s, Gucci began to draw inspiration from the yachting world for some of the House’s products. Indeed, in addition to riding and golf, Gucci’s glamorous clientele were equally enamored with the elite world of yachting, hence sports bags and gift items bearing boating motifs such as anchors, boating knots, mooring ropes were created. Around the mid-1960’s, Gucci first introduced the Marina Chain in the context of jewellery production (cufflinks and bracelets), in addition to gift items such as key-rings. The first belts appeared in the early 1970’s as a silver-plated anchor chain with anchor motifs. In the same period, gold necklaces and women’s watches with the Marina motif began to appear. Frida Giannini first re-interpreted the symbol in 2007 and thanks to her unique sense of modernity and immense creativity, created an exclusive collection composed of soft necklaces, bracelets and earrings that harmoniously combine bold Marina link chains and Horsebit elements to reinforce the iconicity of the jewels.
Founded in 1921 by Guccio Gucci, the brand was extended in the 1970’s with the introduction of Swiss Made timepieces and was developed in 1997 with Italian-made silver jewelry, followed by a Fine Jewelry collection in 1999. The jewelry portfolio has grown over time and today includes dazzling, made-to-order High Jewelry parures that represent the pinnacle of innovative creativity and impeccable craftsmanship. All Gucci Jewelry designs offer a uniquely Italian and contemporary take on elegant style and glamour, incorporating the brand’s signature motifs, such as the Horsebit or ‘GG’ monograms. In its most luxurious expression, Gucci Jewelry is embellished with precious stones such as rubies, sapphires or diamonds, and the latter are always Kimberley certified.
