Hi, I am Esther and on this blog I simply love to inspire you! My own passion for jewelry was born in the years I have spend in Valenza, Italy. The world’s capital of handmade fine jewelry by the greatest craftsmen. For me, jewelry has everything to do with art, love, craftsmanship and creativity on one side. And on the other side: with joy, emotions, capturing memories, and playfulness. Once I was asked to give a quote about my personal view on jewelry. Here is how I see it:

‘’A piece of jewelry is often a piece of art. But it only becomes valuable when emotions are added to it’’

I have worked for 25 years in jewelry, mostly in international sales and marketing, but also running a jewelry store for over 6 years in Italy. Bizzita.com started in 2013. First, I hoped it to be a source of inspiration for jewelry lovers, but it quickly grew much bigger. Bizzita.com has become a consultancy company for jewelry brands and jewelry stores all over the globe. We have created a store locator and business directory! And I write personally for several international jewelry trade magazines.

Want to know more? Drop me a line! We would love to know, I mean, really LOVE to know what you think of Bizzita.com and what you would like to see on this website! But also; what do you think about jewelry? Do you have a special story that you want to share? Are you a creative designer that has come up with something exciting? We would LOVE to get in touch with you!

Thank you SO very much for coming to Bizzita.com! :-* Esther
