Palmiero’s new fine jewelry, with a tribute to the world of cinema ♦ ︎
Born in 1963, Carlo Palmiero developed a passion for beautiful objects and precious gems as a boy. A passion that led him to open his own private atelier, with sales by appointment only, in Rome in 1985. But Palmiero also cultivates another passion: cinema. So much so that he created a Cinema Collection, which includes high-end watchmaking works. Like Ingrid, a bracelet-watches with pink sapphires dedicated to Bergman, the great Swedish actress. But, of course, the great jewels are the focus of the Maison of Valenza. One of the latest innovations, for example, is the Rays of Sun collection. The rays are expressed with folds of a gold foil that recall certain sculptures from the Baroque period, with diamonds that form a special halo, as if they were reflections.
I have always been a child with a great imagination. I used to spend hours assembling and disassembling objects, creating and molding tiny wax jewels. In the jewellery art I finally found the way to give expression to what appeared to be my most natural gift: manual skill. The opportunity I had to observe and work with the greatest master goldsmiths of Valenza contributed to arise my curiosity towards jewellery. I thus started to grow a passion for this art, whose techniques and secrets I deeply wanted to learn about.
