Having graduated in Milan in 1980 with a degree in Textile Design, Ms Stuart specialised, once again in Milan, with Franca Tosi in Goldsmith and Goldsmithing. She began her professional career at the Promostil style office in Paris with the drafting of the first Gold Trend Book, first in 1983 and again in 1992.
For four years, she worked as a Designor in a goldsmith agency at the forefront of the use of new technologies such as the Laser and Electroforming and is now passionate about these new tools. While then working as a Free Lancer, she combined her knowledge of the construction of the jewel within the manual aspect of stone embedding through the innovative aspects of the new techniques. In 1986, Ms Stuart won First Prize at the International Gold Corporation, held in Vicenza, with the theme of “L’Oro nell’Evoluzione della Moda” [“Gold in the Fashion Evolution”]. There followed many international collaborations aimed at creating luxury items in diverse sectors, from silver housewares to those, more parituclarly, made for a famous car company.
In 1992, she proposed that a selection of stores display a limited Jewellry series, with unique pieces, and accessories in precious materials with her own name.
In 2014, she made sustainable jewellery in 3D, in gold, which will be exhibited at Vicenzaoro and in Milan at the Biblioteca della Moda, for the exhibition “Intorno al Futuro” [“Around the Future”], curated by Alba Cappellieri.
The Contemporary Jewels and Design department works together with the Jewelery and Watches department. Each sale proposes a selection of vintage, modern, contemporary, and design jewellery. The intent, in fact, is not just one of researching and selecting the most precious antique and signed pieces, still loved by clients tied to a classical style who see luxury as a good investment; but also to propose, in a completely new way, jewellery of a contemporary design and alternative material, all related to the latest fashion trends. Our experts are present throughout the country and organise days of free valuations in order to always acquire new material, as well as keeping themselves available to meet with clients to respond to eventual questions and satisfy any requirement.
