MILAN — Fueled by the growing demand for platinum wedding bands, the Platinum Guild International has organized an exhibition to display 23 nuptial rings designed by renowned designers in fashion, jewelry and interiors.

Fashion designers who for once swapped fabrics with precious metal include Alberta Ferretti; Antonio Marras, who has a namesake line besides being the creative director at Kenzo; Fulvia Visconti Ferragamo for Salvatore Ferragamo; Debora Sinibaldi, and the late Gianfranco Ferré, since this was one of his last projects.

High-profile names that stand out on the design front include Patricia Urquiola, Aldo Cibic and Antonio Citterio, while avant-garde jewelry designers include Giorgio Vigna, Gabriele Devecchi and Rossella Tornquist.

“This exhibition reflects a cultural aspect because we wanted to highlight Italian design and at the same time place the focus on bridal,” said a spokeswoman.

The interpretations, which range from bold to romantic to edgy, will be showcased at the Triennale art gallery in Milan from Nov. 5-30. The curator is Alba Cappellieri, a professor of jewelry design at the Politecnico institute of Milan. It will travel to other countries, which are still in the process of being selected.
