Leonori Jewels: a timeless value.
Founded in 1962 in a small workshop, Leonori Jewellery has known an increasing development over the last 50 years thanks to the devotion, talent and passion of three generations of jewellers who have been able to imprint on the brand Leonori, an original and unmistakable style.
Agostino Leonori was born in a small town in the North of Italy. Since he was young Agostino showed outstanding qualities for drawing jewellery and a curious interest for diamonds and precious stones.
For economic reasons, he started working when he was nine years old as a locksmith welder in a workshop in town. Its extraordinary design skills and extraordinary creativity was appreciated by an important goldsmith in the province and this passion became reality.
Agostino began to practice in all disciplines art gold and jewellery, to arrive then finally, in 1962, to his own business. He moved with his wife to Emilia Romagna where he founded the Atelier Leonori.
The triumph of Agostino’s passion is visible through the experiments and the continuous development that refers to the traditions of the nineteenth-century jewellery.
Beautiful bracelets and precious diadems are created by Leonori, as well as the symbols of Romagna such as the jewel Caveja which has been sold to important people of the time, including Alberto Sordi.
This passion for coloured stones became then a rigorous study and a careful search for the rarest and the most precious stones. He preferred classic and youthful collections, always using diamonds and coloured stones to create a new concept in jewellery. The supremacy of artistic expression in which the jewel should be a simple accessory, refined and elegant: “A Leonori’s jewel is a timeless value.”
Similarly, Agostino developed the company which consists of a team of experienced goldsmiths, designers and gemmologists who continue to make wonderful creations. Agostino’s sons are now continuing the family tradition, bringing the creative imagination and technical skills of jewellery for the exaltation of the gems. “A beautiful jewel has to allow the person who is wearing it to feel special and comfortable, moreover, it needs to be an artwork enjoyable to wear”. This how one of Agostino’s sons, Cesare, defines their work.
The success of Leonori is to create a unique style and refined, unalterable jewellery, making his unique creations, with the imprint of passionate creative goldsmiths, the quality of the precious gems, along with the excellent craftsmanship cured even in the smallest of details.
Currently, with the arrival on the scene of the third generation of Leonori, the story of this fascinating brand continues with the same passion, commitment and love for the stones, which is the genetic heritage of Leonori’s family.
