Thanks to its flourishing trading activities, the Republic of Genoa became a wellspring of arts and crafts over the centuries.
It all begins with a moment of inspiration, a starting point that knows no boundaries. All shapes, from the animal kindom and the world of art, can serve as a basis for Gismondi creations.
It is at this point that our craftsmanship expertise comes in to play. 10 goldsmiths and 3 gem-setters are tasked, with modelling raw matter, into the shapes of our visions, side by side with a Genoese designer who lived for over 30 years in Paris, working for one of the leading jewellery brands worldwide.
Ideas initially take shape on paper. We start out with a few sketches and work our way up to the final design, rendering it on waxed or parchment paper.
It is only at this stage, that in the atelier, we plan and prototype the final layout through computer processing. This is the last preliminary phase to the actual manufacturing of the jewel.
In Gismondi creations, all strictly made in Italy, past and future coexist.
The skilful combination of traditional goldsmiths craftsmanship and cutting-edge manufacturing techniques allows us to match up to the highest quality requirements.
