AN ICONIC LEGACY
Since its inception in Milan in 1967, Pomellato has pushed the boundaries of iconic style with its vibrant gemstones and contemporary design. From exquisite craftsmanship to magnificent jewel, every creation remains handcrafted in-house with unique savoir-faire to enthral and empower.
Eternally inspired by Milan’s strong creative spirit, Pomellato embodies a modern yet unconventional beauty synonymous with its beloved hometown. The Maison’s signature style is a tribute to the city’s goldsmithing heritage: elegant, original and unmistakably Milanese.
Every day in Pomellato’s Milan atelier, over 100 artisans craft one-of-a-kind jewels. Each gemstone creation is brought to life by their passion and expertise, forged by hours of meticulous labor and inventive solutions. This process brings together precious metals such as Pomellato’s signature rose gold, fine diamonds, and coloured gems from all over the world. Synonymous with creativity and color, Pomellato was founded in Milan in 1967 by Pino Rabolini – the heir to his family’s goldsmith legacy. Introducing the prêt-à-porter philosophy to the traditionally conservative world of jewelry. Amongst many expert techniques, Pomellato craftsmen most often employ microfusion. Also known as lost-wax casting, the process dates back to 3500 B.C., and allows the soft lines and voluminous, flowing shapes that the Maison has come to be known for. This goldsmith art is used to set increasingly rare semi-precious stones – known as the ‘new precious’ gems – to create jubilant, contemporary Pomellato jewels. In-house goldsmith creation is an essential part of the Milanese brand’s identity and renown. Jewelry-making knowledge and experimentation involve rituals of painstaking care, and attention to materials.
To capture the emotion of a jewel, instinct becomes an important guide. Inspirations are expressed within the jewel’s shapes – like perfect, tiny sculptures – each crafted by a combination of invention, curiosity and the Maison’s singular style. Free from convention, Pomellato pursues alternative solutions and perspectives in its jewels, rendering them tangible by the tactile and visual qualities of its authenticity.
