A Jewel from the East

by Danilo Brunetti

Easily one the finest creators of bespoke jewelry in Italy, Ruggero Rocchetti began his career by attending the famous Valenza Po laboratories, where he learned the art of cutting gemstones, and soon became a master of this precious art.

He opened his first shop in Rome in 1983, with a focus on Oriental jewelry, sourcing the highest quality stones to create his own unique style.

Drawing on the models of Indian culture and colors, Ruggero now specializes in Victorian jewelry and Italian ring designs, taking much of his inspiration from nature. His boutique/laboratory is a true atelier where he delights in welcoming his customers in a comfortable setting. Via Mario de’ Fiori, 64. Tel 068415223.
