CREPUNDIA CONTEMPORARY JEWELS
Who ever said that jewels are superfluous? With jewels we create an emotional bond; jewels remind us of moments, stories, important dates, emotions. Furthermore, a jewel expresses our style, without words.
CREPUNDIA CONTEMPORARY JEWELS WAS BORN IN AUGUST 2005.
COMBINED BY THE LOVE OF BEAUTY AND JEWELRY THE TWO CO-FOUNDERS - SIMONETTA BARILLI AND FEDERICA CUCCATI - EVEN COMING FROM ABSOLUTELY DIFFERENT EXPERIENCES, FINALLY FIND THE STORE FOR THEM. IN THE FULL HISTORICAL CENTER OF BOLOGNA , EXACTLY BETWEEN THE TWO TOWERS AND PIAZZA SANTO STEFANO - ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SQUARES IN ITALY WITH ITS SEVEN CHURCHES - AND DECIDE TO OPEN THE SALE OFFICE OF THEIR OWN PUBLIC CREATIONS IN A RECENTLY RESTORED HISTORICAL BUILDING FROM THE CURRENT PROPERTY.
THEY DECIDE FOR A LATIN NAME, CREPUNDIA: they were the small gold trinkets that in ancient Rome were given to children as lucky charms. A precious and magical little object.
THE PHILOSOPHY THAT GUIDES THE ATELIER IS THE SEARCH FOR THE UNIQUE PIECE, FROM SHAPES TO MATERIALS, PASSING THROUGH THE REVISITATION OF CLASSIC JEWELRY IN A SOPHISTICATED KEY USING UNUSUAL MATERIALS IN THE JEWELERY WORLD.
"We have always been attentive to quality, to detail, to the ancient Italian and Florentine goldsmith traditions, but translated into a modern and contemporary style, suitable for the modern, urban, contemporary woman"
“We are careful in our purchases, that they are conscious and sustainable. The raw materials have a safe and certified origin "
THE JEWEL FOR CREPUNDIA MUST BE A JEWEL WEARABLE EVERYDAY . A PARTICULAR ACCESSORY, THAT SPEAKS ABOUT ITSELF, WHICH IS IMPORTANT BUT WHICH DOES NOT OVERCOME THE PERSONALITY AND - ESPECIALLY - WHICH IS NOT A SERIES JEWEL THAT CAN BE FOUND EVERYWHERE.
"Our muse, our ideal woman, is a current woman, strong, strong-willed, determined, enterprising but also romantic, a woman who decides to give herself a jewel that reminds her of a date every day, an occasion, his affections, a particular moment of his life ”
THE GOLDSMITH TRADITION, THE LOVE FOR SLOW WORKING IN THE LABORATORY - LOCATED IN FLORENCE IN THE ANCIENT HOUSE OF GOLDSMITH NEXT TO PONTE VECCHIO - THE SEARCH FOR PARTICULAR STONES, IN COLOR AND IN CUTTING, THE RESEARCH OF ALTERNATIVE MATERIALS, THE TASTE OF MATCHING COLORS ARE THE LEADING THREAD OF CREPUNDIA CONTEMPORARY JEWELRY WORK.
“We like the slow work of the artisans, in the Florence workshop, where time seems to have stopped. The laboratory is located right in the historic Palazzo degli Orafi, next to the Ponte Vecchio, one of the most enchanted places in Florence.
Crepundia Gioielli Contemporanei jewels are always and always handmade, with the techniques of the Italian goldsmith tradition and updated in the shapes, colors and combinations of materials. < / h2>
Gold, silver and bronze are worked in the Laboratory.
We combine metals with pearls, brilliants, diamonds, rubies, emeralds, sapphires, tourmalines, garnets. Nature always gives us wonderful stones "
"We love the customization of each jewel and we really like it when our customers unleash their imagination for the creation of a particular and personalized jewel.For us, every time is a challenge ”
OVER TIME THE SHOP BECOMES A JEWELERY CONCEPT STORE COMBINING FROM TIME TO TIME OTHER LINES IN COLLABORATION WITH INDEPENDENT BRANDS, ALL JEWEL DESIGNERS, ALL CREATIVE JEWELRY LOVERS

"Crepundia jewels are jewels to be worn every day, from morning to evening. For us this is a fundamental point. The jewels accompany us in our life and, at the same time, they speak about us. We like to think that our jewels are and will remain life companions.
Nonconformists, not aligned with large productions and for this very reason "chosen" as such. The choice is never accidental. The jewel represents us. It is for this reason that our jewels are "authentic", never linked to the fashion of the moment, but always linked to the personality of the wearer.
We want to express authenticity, originality, topicality; we want women to feel comfortable with the jewelry we create especially for them.
Each jewel of the Collections is carefully designed, prototyped, worn by us personally and finally added to the Collection. We would never be able to sell what we don't love.
Each Unique Piece jewel is studied from time to time, it is thought and rethought and finally something extraordinary is born that surprises us every time. The uniqueness makes it even more special.
Our jewels are particular, sometimes unique, they have personality but they are discreet. Original yes, but wearable, because we are not models on the catwalk: our jewel must be an accessory that does not prevail over our personality but that expresses it and makes it manifest without the need for words. We like that it's an accessory that you notice ... but that you notice after a while!
Our jewels might seem a bit "rebellious", promoters of freedom and thinking outside the box. We definitely break the tradition while maintaining the performance tradition. They are jewels for free spirits, who do not conform to the diktats of fashion and brands. They are jewels that bring innovation. Forget the rules, if you like, wear it "
