Museo del Gioiello

Posted on the 27th February 2015

Taking you on a bit of an Italian Adventure this afternoon, Holts London would like to introduce you to the ‘Museo del Gioiello’ (Museum of Jewellery) in the City of Gold, better known as Vicenza. This new landmark is the first jewellery museum in Europe and is dedicated exclusively to the art of Goldsmith and Jewellery. The Palladian Basilica hosts over 400 pieces in 9 different halls, including a possible room that intents to hold pieces such as the necklace worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s with the Flora Sassons royal crown or even the green pigment spillain of Giampoalo Babetto with a Bulgari necklace using the global phenomenon of 3D printing. It would be a revelation into the jewellery industry. This unique experience allows visitors to explore the interesting journey through magnificent jewellery stated Alba Capperlieri who has been involved in the project since it began 7 years ago. Soo to sum up, I can highly recommend taking a trip to Italia for this reason alone…who knows, Holts London could end up exhibiting in the Museo del Gioiello. Until then please do browse our Holts collections or if you don’t see anything that tickles your fancy we can offer you our Bespoke Coloured Gemstone Jewellery Service. Happy shopping and have a great weekend!
