Catalogue Note

The Scavia brothers, Paolo Bartolomeo and Domenico began their careers in the goldsmith industry in Valencia. In 1911, Domenico and his wife moved to Milan and opened their first workshop. Together they grew the firm to a remarkable size and later passed it on to the next generation, their son and daughter Sara and Bruno.

A change of direction came with Saras’ son Fulvio Maria who joined the firm as a jewellery designer in 1967. He broke with the classical Italian tradition and started experimenting with pure geometric forms and innovative materials. His designs won several awards such as the Diamond International Award, the Tahitian Pearl Trophy and the Platinum International Award.

The use of caved precious and semiprecious stones is one of Scavia's signature features.
