Founder Giuseppe Picchiotti had a clear vision from an early age for creating the finest jewellery. As a child from a long line of physicians, the family opposed his goal of entering the jewellery trade. Yet, at age 13, he apprenticed as a goldsmith and never looked back. Today the legendary family endeavour is precision-run by Picchiotti, a highly respected connoisseur of fine coloured gemstones and diamonds, and seven family members: A charismatic, multi-generational group focusing on creating the most distinctive and sophisticated fine jewellery. Each family member oversees different aspects of the business and contributes greatly to its success.
