RUBINIA GIOIELLI was founded from an idea by designer Ilario Plazzi and became a reality after meeting with fellow designer Robert Ricci in 1995. RUBINIA GIOIELLI has since become a place of excellence where jewellery pieces are conceived and designed as if they were tailored clothes, in a constant and passionate search for new and amazing materials and colour combinations.
RUBINIA GIOIELLI creates unique and stylish jewellery, featuring distinctive colours and with a primary focus on the individual’s personality. The pieces are original in colour, style, and cut. Using gold, silver, leather, white gold and rose gold as well as beautiful gemstones, like diamonds, iolite and aquamarine, RUBINIA GIOIELLI creates sophisticated jewellery to cherish for a lifetime.
How did your brand begin?
The idea first came to Mr. Ilario Plazzi in 1985, who met me in 1995, and together we created the world of Rubinia Gioielli. I have always wanted to highlight the individuality of each person through my jewellery and for 25 years have focused on creating unique pieces for unique people.
