Identity

High jewelry and jewelry house Repossi has carried on a family tradition of distinctive creativity for three generations.

This family jewelry tradition dates back to the origins of the Maison in Turin in 1957, where Constantino Repossi, after studying industrial design and developing a pronounced taste for Art Deco, opened his first boutique. The story continued when his son Alberto gave Repossi an international dimension by moving to Monte Carlo at the end of the 1970s, becoming the official jeweler to the Monegasque royal family. From the glamour of the 1980s to the avant-garde elegance of Paris – where the Maison opened its boutique on Place Vendôme in 1986 – Repossi resonates with its times, continually renewing its offering with a fresh vision of jewelry.

Repossi has been re-energized by the vision of Gaia Repossi, who became Artistic Director in 2007. She has reinvented traditional jewelry codes, melding primitive jewelry with modern art and architecture in bold pieces worn like a precious second skin, or wearable art.

Icon

The “Serti sur Vide” collection reinvents iconic classic jewelry such as the solitaire ring with floating diamonds. Diamonds are set on a hidden structure and float above the skin as if suspended, revealing the purity of the gem.

“Our workshops do things the same way they did 100 years ago, but with new technologies, a perfect combination of the old and new worlds.”

Savoir-faire

Established since 1986 in the center of Place Vendôme, Repossi infuses each creation with its unique jewelry savoir-faire. Pieces are exclusively handcrafted in France and Italy as Repossi carries on a 40-year heritage of meticulous craftsmanship.
The Maison has worked with the same Italian workshops for generations, guaranteeing technical expertise and unerring quality. Repossi uses only the highest quality gemstones in its jewelry creations, mainly diamonds, but also colored diamonds and emeralds.
