Boa­sting mo­re than 160 years of hi­sto­ry, the Sal­va­do­ri Dia­mond Ate­lier of­fers wo­men emo­tions that go straight to the heart

Boa­sting mo­re than 160 years of hi­sto­ry, the Sal­va­do­ri Dia­mond Ate­lier in­ter­pre­ts eve­ry de­si­re wi­th sty­le and ex­pe­rien­ce, of­fe­ring wo­men emo­tions that go straight to the heart. By Ste­fa­nia Vi­da

Sal­va­do­ri esta­bli­shed its fir­st sto­re in the ma­gi­cal ci­ty of Ve­ni­ce in 1857. At that ti­me, it on­ly car­ried watches, pe­riod bed­si­de and tra­vel alarm clocks, gran­d­fa­ther clocks and wall clocks. Ho­we­ver, it was on­ly thanks to Ga­brie­le Pen­di­ni, the com­pa­ny's long­ti­me president who had a passion for gem­sto­nes, that Sal­va­do­ri be­ca­me a tan­gi­ble ex­pres­sion of high-class, sought-af­ter jewel­ry. Ga­brie­le Pen­di­ni, who is a mem­ber of the mo­st im­por­tant dia­mond ex­chan­ges in the world, Ant­werp and Tel Aviv, is thus cer­ti­fied to pur­cha­se and sell dia­monds free­ly. Over ti­me, Sal­va­do­ri be­gan spe­cia­li­zing in the in­du­stry, be­co­ming a real ‘Dia­mond Ate­lier' whe­re, be­gin­ning wi­th the de­si­gn, ea­ch pie­ce of ex­qui­si­te jewel­ry is hand­ma­de and em­bla­zo­ned wi­th the pre­sti­gious Sal­va­do­ri mar­quee. The dia­monds cho­sen for ea­ch and eve­ry crea­tion are di­stin­gui­shed by their un­pa­ral­le­led cut, co­lour, cla­ri­ty and ca­rat, whi­ch ser­ve to in­ten­si­fy their dazz­ling bril­lian­ce. Ad­di­tio­nal­ly, they all co­me wi­th ei­ther HRD (the Hoo­ge Raad voor Dia­mond of Ant­werp) or GIA (Ge­mo­lo­gi­cal In­sti­tu­te of Ame­ri­ca) cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. To­day, the com­pa­ny is ma­na­ged by Ga­brie­le's daughters, Mo­ni­ca, ma­na­ging di­rec­tor, and Mar­zia, jewel de­si­gner.

In ad­di­tion to its peer­less craf­tsman­ship, Sal­va­do­ri al­so cham­pions good cau­ses. A por­tion of the pro­ceeds from the sa­le of its jewel­ry is used to sup­port hu­ma­ni­ta­rian projects in col­la­bo­ra­tion wi­th Ac­tio­naid, an in­ter­na­tio­nal non-go­vern­men­tal or­ga­ni­za­tion. >> Sal­va­do­ri Dia­mond Ate­lier Piaz­za San Mar­co, 67
