Bassi Italian Jewels: The Luxury of Italian Craftsmanship
Everything started in Vicenza, registered as an UNESCO World Heritage city thanks to the architectural art of Andrea Palladio. The city is one of the finest examples of classical Roman architecture. Vicenza, whose name derives from the Latin “vincens” meaning “the winner”, lives up to its well-deserved epithet. Under Venetian rule the city flourished, enjoying great prosperity for more than 400 years. A curiosity: the city of Vicenza is the only Italian municipality that instead of its own banner has the Italian flag with the symbol of the city in the centre.
Vicenza’s destiny was to create beauty and new ideas and today hosts the Museum of Jewels, the only jewelry museum in Italy, where Bassi Italian Jewels is been selected for its creations. It is also the home of Vicenzaoro, the famous jewelry trade show that attracts so many exhibitors and attendees.
Within this time-honoured civic tradition, at the beginning of the 1960s, Mr. Adriano Bassi founded his own jewelry atelier in Vicenza – revealing his passion for the superb craftsmanship and high-quality gold items he is known for. Today the second generation of the Bassi family runs this company, preserving the ancient techniques and savoir-faire of Vicenza’s hand-crafted jewelry tradition.
This company specializes in gold chains, bracelets, earrings and bangles. A remarkable share of their work is produced for third parties and exported to the most important markets in the world. We can affirm that some of the most famous jewelry brands take advantage of Bassi’s skill and expertise. Christian and Massimiliano Bassi had the sensibility and foresight to combine the ancient art of handmade jewelry with modern techniques such as 3D design and programming and laser processing. Moreover, this company promotes sustainability and is a member of the Responsible Jewelry Council.
