Masterpieces of costume jewelry by De Liguoro

Original Italian Design

De Liguoro is one of the greatest Italian costume jewelry designers. He contributed to the sense of glamour of Italian prêt-à-porter during the 80s. He is one of the great jewelers who helped write a chapter of the history of Italian craftsmanship, between tradition and innovation.

Creative and eccentric, with a strong family tailoring tradition, Gianni De Liguoro with his wife Angela decided in the early 1960’s to start producing gadgets in plastic for an expanding market. Immediately the creations were very successful and soon he passed to the creation of small bijoux .

But in the 1980s that comes the big hit, when De Liguoro started working with some of the most sophisticated and elegant Italian brands, such as Alberta Ferretti, Fausto Sarli, Rocco Barocco, Renato Balestra, Enzo Russo and Trussardi. He interpreted with his creations the opulence, the elegance and the sumptuosness of Italian fashion in the last 20 years of the 1900s; this an important period for the spread of Made in Italy in the world.

The True Made in Italy

Made in Italy, excellent craftsmanship, sophisticated creations and perfect quality. These are the main features of the brand.
