8 days of preparation for the whole series, 16 episodes.
We began with enthusiasm which did not wane.
I am happy with the concept which I managed to design and continuously stick with. In the series I used the original watches and jewellery from prestigious, modern shops in order to depict rich city families. I also used some antique jewellery in order to illustrate old lineage and modest but precious possessions owned by islanders.
These are the references of de Petrus jewellers whose support made this possible. I have an exclusive contract with them which allows me to borrow their jewellery for different shootings.
Their record of successful business cooperation extends over many years with renowned jewellery producers: Alferi & St. John, Baraka, Damiani, FB Gioelli, Fope, Gioelliamo, La novelle baggue, Pesavento…
Recently we have expanded our offer to include renowned watches made by Audemars Piguet, Bell&Ross, Bvlgari, Corum, Girard – Perregaux, Gucci, Hublot, Momo design, Yorg Hysek.
As far as antique jewellery is concerned, I cooperated with two jewellery shops Zaks and Gjoni.
It usually happens that even for the shortest of commercials I manage to get original watches and jewellery. Perhaps this is due to the fact that it is difficult to get reliable copies in Croatia but it could also be because I love the glitter of the original jewellery. I am sorry this does not show in the final product, but I know that I used it.
