Italy has long been a land of exceptional jewelry, a country of unique regions with their own enduring styles. Many of today’s Italian masterworks, including pieces of woven or coiled gold articulated in bold designs and whimsical forms, reflect the nation’s rich goldsmithing history—but with a distinctly contemporary bent. These highly original creations depict a diverse and dynamic jewelry culture that seems to have no bounds.
