In particular the gold chains produced in Vicenza are often true works of art.

In the heart of Vicenza, Italy, lies a treasure trove of exquisite craftsmanship and timeless beauty:

the gold jewelry producers that have been shaping the industry for centuries. These family-owned businesses, steeped in tradition, have honed their skills and techniques over generations, creating gold chains that are nothing short of works of art.

It is an intricate dance between master and apprentice, father and son, where knowledge and expertise are passed down through the hands-on experience and shared passion for the craft. The result is unparalleled craftsmanship that can be seen and felt in every piece of jewelry that emerges from these workshops.
