Repossi perpetuates the creative family heritage of three generations as a jewelry and high jewelry house.
The tradition of this inherited family jewelry house began in Turin in 1957 when Costantino Repossi opened his first boutique after studying industrial design and developing a pronounced taste for Art Deco. The legacy continued when his son Alberto added an international dimension by moving to Monte-Carlo in the late 70’s and becoming the official jeweler to the royal family of Monaco. From the glamour of the 80’s to the elegance of the Parisien avant-garde when the house settles into the Place Vendome in 1986, Repossi anchors in its time by continuously offering a new incarnation of jewelry.
Gaia Repossi, Creative Director since 2007, has regenerated the vision of the house by reinventing the traditional codes of jewelry. She combines primitive jewelry with art and architecture to create bold pieces intended to be worn as a second skin or as an « Art à Porter ».
Repossi is particularly renowned today for its emblematic collections that play with notions of full and empty as with Serti sur Vide which is characterized by floating diamonds. Antifer is recognizable with its peaks and sharp angles, and Berbere repeats minimalist lines.
The timeless creations with resolutely bold and architectural lines push the limits of traditional craftmanship and position Repossi as the most avant-garde jewelry house on the Place Vendôme.
