Italy is known around the world as the place to go for beautiful, luxurious gold jewelry. But becoming world class doesn’t just happen. You first have to go to class. Many of our Raffinato gold masters attended the prestigious Istituto Orafo Margaritone–– THE school for perfecting precious metal craftsmanship. Established in 1882 in the Palazzo della Badia in Arezzo, the Istituto Orafo Margaritone is named in honor of the great Arezzo sculptor, architect & painter Margartione d’ Arezzo.
When you purchase Italian gold jewelry from our exclusive Raffinato Collection you can be assured each and every piece was handcrafted by a master artisan in Italy. From our office in the heart of Italian gold country— Arezzo–– we form valuable partnerships with our Italian artisans and secure absolutely amazing deals for our clients.
