"The roots of Franco Daverio sink into the Italian twentieth century, in that the tradition of making sculpture that was able to look at the history of art as the source of narrative themes." (Sculptor and mentor Fausto Melotti-1901-186)


The Daverio tradition:

Three generations of Daverio, each with their own visions and strengths.


This premise by Fausto Melotti helps us to open our eyes to the "Daverio tradition," a vocation towards art and beauty that began in the early decades of the twentieth century through the impetuous artistic vein of Franco, who, since childhood, expressed his inner and dreamlike world by creating instinctive and emotional images. Franco was one-of-a-kind, refusing to exhibit his many gorgeous sculptures even though consistently invited to do so. While his peers became famous, Franco remained true to his admirable integrity and values.


The creative legacy and the family sculptural tradition shape Luca's creations, leading him to undertake a career as a sculptor of jewels. After having worked and learned from his father the processing techniques and

creative freedom, since the early 80s, he's been making innovative jewelry, the art of a small scale, an expression of a millenary artistic world, a tradition, and a work accumulated over decades of passionate work.


With Pablo's arrival, the new generation breathes freshness and novelty into our collections. Remaining faithful to our corporate philosophy of expressive freedom, our sculptural designs embrace an even more innovative character. They boast unique lines and combinations, always striving for originality —a revitalizing force that infuses new life into our longstanding tradition and accumulated body of work.



How the Daverio1933 story started:

Once upon a time, in the landmark year of 1933, a young prodigy named Franco Daverio set foot on a path that would forever redefine the jewelry world. Picture a young sixteen-year-old, his heart brimming with ambition and his fingertips itching to shape something extraordinary. While his peers may have dreamt of adventures beyond the classroom, Franco found solace and Inspiration amidst the hallowed halls of the School of Applied Arts in Cantù. Little did he know that this seemingly unassuming moment would catalyze an enchanting journey of creativity and craftsmanship that would leave a lasting mark on his family's history.

The third generation; the Daverio story, continues.

Pablo Daverio, the third generation, has made a conscious decision by stepping into the footsteps of his father and grandfather. ''The inner vocation towards art and beauty, the curiosity leading to new compositions, and the artistic heritage I grew up with stimulated my interest in drawing and designing jewelry,'' he says. The sculptural part of Daverio is and will always remain critically important to the brand. 

''To me, it is the artistic heritage that surrounded me daily at home during my youth, which is still present in the brand's showroom today, where I have the privilege of working alongside my father. My role as a jewelry designer is intricately connected to all the other responsibilities I undertake both within and outside the showroom. Not only do I focus on designing exquisite jewelry pieces, but I also delve into various creative realms. I oversee photography, videography, and graphic design''.

Pablo continues: ''On the other hand, my father, in his own artistic way, ventures into sculpting and has meticulously attended to every facet of the brand's identity for over three decades. He oversees elements such as the design, packaging, display cabinets, and much more. Each aspect of our design work becomes a canvas through which we express our inner experiences and create our artistic visions''.


Each piece becomes a testament to the relentless pursuit of excellence, a celebration of the boundless possibilities within the realm of jewelry. With every stroke of the hammer and every delicate setting of a gemstone, Luca and his team weave stories that transcend time, leaving an indelible mark on the world of adornment.


Esther asked Luca what he found the most fascinating in creating a jewel.

Luca, ''The most fascinating thing for me is materializing ideas into tangible objects and the pleasure I get from sculpting. It's also rewarding to see how happy people are to own a unique piece of jewelry''.

 What is the most complex aspect?

Luca: '' The craftsmanship in creating jewelry is more complicated than one might imagine. The precision required to execute specific details or set gemstones can be on the scale of hundredths of a millimeter. It is also challenging to harmonize different materials in a single piece and enhance the distinctive features of gemstones with the volumes and contrasts of metals. These design phases require sensitivity and expertise''.

Have you ever considered pursuing other professions besides being a goldsmith?

''After completing my studies and trying out various unsatisfying jobs, I found myself in my father's workshop to help him with his goldsmithing work. From the very first strike of the hammer, I was captivated by the pleasure of sculpting. It was love at first sight, and I haven't stopped creating and experimenting with new techniques ever since'' says Luca.


Where do you see the company in the future?

Pablo: '' Knowing that our artistic tradition continues with the third generation, I envision the work being passed down continuously, following the same philosophy of uniqueness. Remaining a small company allows us to pursue creative and artistic work, sometimes customized like an haute couture garment.

 ''Inspiration and passion have always motivated us to create sculptures and objects from the heart. The search for new beauty is an inherent instinct in human nature. Capturing changes in trends and design and being able to interpret them with ever-new forms and objects is a gratifying goal. Fortunately, there is always more to explore and experiment with.''


Can you tell us more about the Ricci collection? 

Luca: '' I find immense joy exploring imagery and observing the world around me. Within these experiences, the Inspiration for the Ricci Collection took shape. I wanted to create something extraordinary – three-dimensional and irregular forms that would capture the essence of nature itself.

The Ricci Collection was meticulously crafted to create a chiaroscuro effect, mirroring the interplay of light and shadow in the natural world. My goal was to evoke the materiality and spontaneity within nature's embrace. Each piece in the collection is a testament to this vision.

Through countless hours of dedicated handcrafting and employing sophisticated techniques, the jewelry within the Ricci Collection takes on a distinctive and original appearance. The pieces come to life through this delicate process, radiating a unique beauty that combines the artistry of light and shadow.

The Ricci Collection is not merely jewelry but wearable art that tells a story. My passion is to create pieces beyond mere adornment, offering a glimpse into the wonders of the natural world and evoking a sense of awe and wonder. I strive to convey the beauty and intricacies within nature's grasp of every creation.''
