An ever-evolving tradition
The Novecento mesh is Fope’s first real icon and the signature feature of the brand’s collections. Back in the 1960s Fope specialised in producing watchstraps in gold and other metals for Switzerland’s leading watchmakers, a task requiring exceptional levels of craftsmanship, precision and specific technologies. In the 1970s the company decided to draw on this wealth of expertise to create its very own mesh, launching a jewellery range which is highly distinctive, instantly recognisable and unique on the international jewellery scene.
A timeless classic
The Novecento stands out for its three-dimensional round or oval structure. The 18 carat gold parts which make up the chain are interlinked, making the jewellery softer, elegant and easy to wear. Instead of soldering, Fope uses its exclusive techniques and technologies to produce designs in varying thicknesses. Fope jewellery is highly distinctive, instantly recognisable and unique on the international jewellery scene.
THE NOVECENTO TODAY
As well as earning Fope its reputation, the Novecento mesh is behind the recent global success of the Flex’it collections. The original flexible design of the bracelets (and some rings) makes the jewellery even simpler and more comfortable to wear, bringing a contemporary twist to this icon of luxury and beauty.
