Milano. To those who know the family, it’s not a surprise that free-spirited Viola Romani Adami became a jewellery designer. Since she was very small she used to travel around the world, especially to New York, with her mother Giuliana, to buy jewels from the 1930s and the 1940s for her mother’s shop. After a course at jewellery school in Rome, where she learned all the techniques, Viola realized that she loved and was fascinated by stones. She uses a lot of stones and very little gold. Like the brooch featured above from the Firework collection; multi-colored semi precious stones and diamonds explode like fireworks. She makes all the prototypes herself by hand. Her style tends towards the baroque and naturally, she is inspired by the 1940s. You can contact her at:

Note: the garnet, rock crystal and diamond ring from the Mandala collection. It was inspired by a trip to India, Persia and the orient.
