Beauty Revisited: The House of Leonori

Hailed from Parma, it has always been Leonori’s dream of creating the world’s most beautiful jewels. His dream manifested into reality 55 years ago and he never looked back ever since.

For three generations, the Italian design house of Leonari has achieved progressive fame for its rich artistic heritage and technical mastery in each and every one of its jewellery creation. When Cesare Leonori took seat as a CEO of Leonori, he began his work of passion and went on to create bespoke jewellery that would find a way to win the lady’s heart.

From start to finish, each jewellery piece from The house of Leonori honours traditional craftsmanship by harnessing the technical skills typical of those used by Italian craftsmen in the past.

“The love for jewellery and art, the creativity and the manual skill are part of my genetics. My father passed down it to me and I have also passed down the passion for this craft to my daughters.” – Cesare Leonori, CEO of Leonori

Gemstones of Desires

The design features of Leonori are easy to detect: bold yet unique, an unabashed passion for colours and the rarest precious gems such as emeralds, sapphires and rubies gems at the heart of each jewellery piece. These are the defining facets founder Agostino Leonori passed down to the next generation of goldsmiths, designers, and gemologists who share his passion and appreciation for the craft.

After sourcing the rarest gems from all corners of the earth, the jewellery creation begins with a sketch (schizzo), followed by a detailed drawing (disegno) that depicts the stones’ measurements. Next, the master craftsman will use manual labour skills playing to the creativity of the jeweller. The next stage involves creating the structure in precious metal (creazione). In the final stage, the setter positions the precious stones with detailed precision before the jewel is polished and rhodium-plated to enhance all its brilliance. The end result is an unmistakably unique masterpiece to be passed down from one generation to the next.

At the recent Singapore International Jewelry Expo, Leonori presented a range of iconic jewellery collection and it was well-received at the show. Following, it participated in the exciting showcase of the luxury lifestyle event, Singapore Rendezvous 2017, designed to match the choices of the biggest names available for yachts, super cars, property, and other luxury lifestyle items. For three days, from Oct 5-8 2017, Singapore Rendezvous 2017 showcased a range of dazzling jewellery collections from Leonari, from magnificent rings to statement statement rings and necklaces that’ll appeal to fine jewellery lovers of all ages.
