The jewels of Massimo Raiteri, classics that never set ♦
The beauty of Italy, in particular of Italian jewellery, is the ability to produce high-class pieces, such as those signed by Massimo Raiteri. It is one of the products of the great nursery of Valencia, hills that seem to inspire some of the best craftsmen in the world. Massimo Raiteri has a history which, as often happens in the area, is rooted in the family tradition. His father had a laboratory and inspired the future designer to try to transform the tiny workplace (in a basement, he recalls) into a place of excellence for jewelry.
He succeeded: we have chosen some of his classics to give a pale idea of the monstrous workmanship, within the traditional class of jewels, of which the Maison is capable, which has established itself over the years. Unique pieces, jewels for the few, classy. But so pleasant to look at even if you don’t own them. Gold, especially white, many classic diamonds, white and colored, sapphires… In short, the elements that mark the border between ordinary and extraordinary jewellery. To those who commission a job, the company also underlines «the respect for others by using palladium alloys, therefore free from any nickel content that could cause allergies. In accordance with the guidelines transmitted, the fight against conflict diamonds is primary. All the stones used in Massimo Raiteri’s creations can only come from countries not in conflict zones and none of them constitutes bargaining chips from illicit trafficking, fueling the exploitation of the dignity of those who extract them». In short, there is also a pinch of goodness in beauty.
