Italy’s Hidden Gems
: Giampiero Bodino Fine Jewelry

© Laziz Hamani

Giampiero Bodino, a protégé of Gianni Bulgari and the art director of Richemont, chose a smaller scale for his fine-jewelry house, opened in 2013.

 His exquisite pieces, like the chrysoprase, purple sapphire and diamond cuff (pictured), are available exclusively by appointment at his atelier, discreetly housed in a 1930s Milanese villa, where he personally consults with each client, tailoring one-of-a-kind creations to the wearer. For his ornate designs, inspiration is drawn from Italy’s rich aesthetic history; cameos echo Renaissance sculpture while geometric patterns bring to mind Roman mosaics.
