Signature style: “The motif that identifies a classic Bizzotto Gioielli collection piece (like Infinito and Arabesque) is cable chain that is used as an accent on each piece. These little chains encircle every stone and are an exclusive design created specifically for those collections. In Bizzotto Gioielli’s collections with pavé, we use combinations of several colored stones to give more movement and light to each jewel. Another feature that makes a Bizzotto Gioielli piece more recognizable is the crown B mark.”

Training, education, and design process:Bizzotto jewelry is the result of the founder’s many years of experience in the area of gold jewelry manufacturing mixed with his strong passion for natural colored gemstones and the devoted study of modern techniques in pavé jewelry creation. Bizzotto is a division of AsoloGold, which was founded 30 years ago, and its owner is Cesare Bizzotto, who has almost 50 years of experience in the gold jewelry industry. When his company became well known and successful internationally, he decided to create his own jewelry collection—one that would bear his name and would feature timeless styles, and a collection that would speak of an ancient culture, with jewelry to be passed down from one generation to the next. Ten years ago, the company’s heritage was enriched by Bizzotto’s children joining the family firm; Mauro and Martina Bizzotto and her husband, Alberto, have added renewed enthusiasm, fresh ideas, and a keen eye to what the market demands. All the jewelry is made in Italy.”
