Our in-house experts are dedicated to sourcing only the most exclusive vintage fine jewellery from across the globe, working with specialist partners to discover only the best


By repurposing pieces from the past and curating them for the contemporary world, we can minimise production and honour the power of vintage versatility

The story behind the brand

Diamonds, emeralds, rubies, and sapphires gleam in the house’s ornate yet quirky designs. A bee is the signature of the maison, with Sabbadini crafting this insect into designs such as brooches, earrings, and necklaces, the bees’ bodies composed of scores of precious stones. And the house’s creativity extends to its imaginative, jewel-box of a boutique in Milan, designed by the late architect and production designer Renzo Mongiardino with a checkerboard floor, vaulted ceiling, and dark wood cabinets
