High Jewelry is the magical kingdom of superlative jewelry and exceptional stones – a realm filled with imagination and passion which brings together the many trades to create unique pieces capable of combining emotions and creativity in a contemporary spirit.
The High Jewelry tradition firmly rooted in Geneva goes back to the dawn of the Renaissance. Indeed, Genevan goldsmiths and jewelers were renowned all over Europe, as early as four centuries before the first jewelers were established on the Place Vendôme. With roots like these, one can nurture big dreams.
Perpetuated from generation to generation with the acquisition of new craftsmanship know-how, this tradition of beautiful personal adornments has continued right through to the present day, with ateliers such as de GRISOGONO.
The creation of an exceptional piece is generally born from the encounter between an inspiration and a gemstone: it stems from the vision of a designer like Fawaz Gruosi, a brand like de GRISOGONO, capable of thinking in terms of volumes, reflecting the nuance of colors and drawing in tune with light.
de GRISOGONO takes each initial design idea and transcends them by turning each piece into a glistening reality. After a first sketch comes the preliminary drawing, which the atelier will craft into a three-dimensional piece, combining the precious metal of the mounting with the precious carats of the stones chosen. It is this unique, fragile, almost ethereal procedure that is the foundation of the legitimacy and timeless value of our contemporary creations.
The beauty of de GRISOGONO’s jewelry is not only shown on the visible side but even when the concealed side of a jewel remains out of sight; this is something that women adore because it is pure luxury, made just for them. This is all part of de GRISOGONO’s quest for excellence, and there are no limits on the journey to achieve the final masterpiece.
The same passion and attention to detail that exists in the creative process of a High Jewelry piece is transcended into our Jewelry collection. The same quality of stones, and exact outstanding craftsmanship used in High Jewelry are used to develop our Jewelry collections such as Allegra, Boule, Chiocciola, Matassa, Melody of Colors, among others. Fawaz Gruosi’s vision to create the unique High Jewelry pieces inspired him to develop these amazing creations that are made available to our exclusive clientele around the globe.
If the most beautiful women in the world nurture a gourmand passion for jewelry created by de GRISOGONO, it is because they know that this incredible concentration of elegance and opulence will make them shine with unmistakable refinement and taste. They love the playful nods, the impertinence and the unfailingly playful spirit of these creations.
