There’s no shortage of cute jewelry in the world, but when another Italian jewelry firm (Italians + gold, silver = must-have designs) debuts stateside, well, that’s an occasion of which you’ll want to take particular note. The eight-year-old Rosato brand, headed up by designer and owner, Simona Rosato, has made its way into the cases of a number of U.S. jewelry stores, including some Neiman Marcus locations, Darakjian Jewelers in Southfield, Michigan, and Higashi Pearls & Fine Jewelry in Lemoyne, Pennsylvania.
Rosato’s whimsical looks (animal prints) come to life in sterling silver and 18k gold, and colorful enamel and precious and lab-created stones. The jewelry is made in Arezzo in central Italy, southeast of Florence in the Tuscany province. The brand has even enlisted some high-profile actresses (Demi Moore, Elizabeth Hurley) as ambassadors.
While the designs are cute and the provenance is grand, JCK may heart Rosato most for its wallet-friendly retail prices, starting at just $250. Let’s be honest—who doesn’t love jewelry more when it’s affordable?
