HAND MADE


Raised in the oldest Venetian “botteghe”, our craftsmen are the living testimony of the tradition that linked and still links Venice to precious stones, fine jewelry and silverware. Capital and heart of what was the largest Maritime Republic of the ancient world, Venice was a most important reference in the world for the trading and processing of precious stones and metals.

Antique instruments, sublime techniques, unique craftsmanship secrets and passion are at the base of our jewelry and silverware creations.
