Unearthing the past to stay grounded in the moment.
Believed to mean “gold” in the Taíno recorded language, “Caona” is a reflection of ITÄ's love of discovery, using the metal not just as our canvas, but as our muse.
Gold can tether us as humans; it connects us to our homes, histories, and ancestors. To channel this feeling, we embraced gold’s shape-shifting qualities. Caona is where soft and hard meet. Sinuous shapes and unexpected asymmetry merge with geometric contours and intricate patterns in 14kt gold. We see gilded interpretations of crescent moons and knowing eyes, and ancestral carvings reimagined with striking gemstones resting on gleaming surfaces.
Caona calls on us to remember and reenvision, empowering us to materialize the memories that are waiting to be discovered.
