Dolce & Gabbana the Ruby Collection Limited Edition Xx


If there is one thing that symbolizes the fiery Sicilian passion that lies at the very heart of everything Dolce & Gabbana
create, it is the ruby. This blood red stone is a recurring theme in the Designers’ collections, its peerless beauty utilized
three dimensionally, in crystal form, for embellishment and as a vivid colour, as powerful and emphatic as any

This rare jewel is as much a Dolce&Gabbana tradition as gold and leopard print. But the ruby possesses deep emotional significance too: the ruby precious stone is a personal treasure, a pigeon's blood ruby set in a gold ring 
owned and worn by Stefano Gabbana. “The ruby is my favorite precious stone,” says Stefano, “It represents fire and passion, two things that characterize me quite well, and it’s my birthstone too.”

The ruby red ring evokes many memories of the Designers’ childhoods: the Italian racing red of the 1960s Alfa Romeo Spider, the car driven by Dustin Hoffman in the film The Graduate. “The nostalgia of that glamorous, liberated era
is always inspiring,” says Domenico Dolce. “A casually elegant man driving a sensual, carefree woman in that red
sports car. The wind is playing with her hair, she’s wearing vermillion lipstick: that image for me is so modern and powerful,” he says.
