Roots, culture, craft
Born in Naples, Italy, the son of shoemakers, Antonio Serafino has cultivated an intimate passion for fine crafts since his childhood. As a young man, his dream of becoming a jeweler led him to Florence, where he studied this art in various schools.
In Florence, a jewel of the Renaissance and symbol of refinement, he completed his prestigious apprenticeship in the workshop of celebrated master jeweler Franco Franchi. Among other distinctions, Antonio was certified as a master goldsmith by the Accademia Riachi, also in Florence.
Building on his solid traditional knowledge, Antonio specialized over the years in high-end jewelry making.
More than 20 years of daily labor at the bench, plus a constantly renewed education in disciplines including stone setting and gemology, have made him a virtuoso of the craft.
His design aesthetic, deeply rooted in culture and tradition, strives after purity and sophistication. It is influenced by many things: from geometrical forms and motifs of ethnic origin to graceful curves and patterns inspired by nature, art history and science.
Antonio Serafino’s contemporary style is in constant evolution and reliably channels the aesthetic tendencies of our time.
