ITALIAN FINE JEWELRY
FOPE is an Italian jewelry brand whose headquarters and production are located in Vicenza, Italy. Every jewel is made with a unique mix of traditional craftsmanship and modern technology. The company was established in 1929 and it is owned and managed by the fourth generation of the founding family. Vicenza is very rich in history and culture and has always nurtured talent and great traditions. It is well-known for being the city of Andrea Palladio, widely considered to be one of the most influential Renaissance architect.
Vicenza together with Arezzo and Valenza is also one of the three historic centres of jewellery making in Italy. Workshops large and small have always crafted gold here, creating deep-rooted traditions which are passed down the generations. Here lie the roots of the family which set up its first workshop at the turn of the 20th century, and have been making FOPE creations ever since. They draw on this rich, shared culture as they invent ever-new ways of interpreting Italian style.
Leading-edge numerical control machinery – much of it customised – is the jewel in the factory’s crown, where FOPE’s industrial approach is constantly evolving while the expertise of FOPE’s master goldsmiths is priceless and it’s what makes every piece so unique.
FLEXIBLE GOLD COLLECTIONS
The brand’s most successful creations are the widely known Flex’it collections whose highlight are the stretchable clasp free bracelets and rings. This jewelry is both sophisticated and easy to wear as it features an original and patented system of tiny 18k gold springs hidden between each link. A must have!
