Solo io

Jewels made in Italy

from the elegance of architecture to the magic of jewels

Solo io, from the idea to the jewel

The spiral elements typical of the unique Solo io Jewels made in Italy ® style were conceived in a cozy autumn afternoon, when creative families use to play all together with paper, pencils, brushes and, why not, some modeling dough. Then, the first spiral was molded by gentle fingers, immediately followed by another one and another one, again and again.

Together they formed a unique composition, similar to a flower bouquet. However the magic inspiration would come later, during a visit of Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola, a well-known town not far from Rome. Within the noble spaces finely designed by the late Renaissance architect Vignola, a splendid helicoidal staircase would stand out elegant, fluent and smoothly revolving onto itself, cast as an architectural jewel in a marvelous cardinal palazzo.

The seducing spiral volume would give the space a fascinating light and dark effect, enhanced by frescos and other decorative elements. That special experience, later integrated by the visits of other astonishing buildings in Rome, would then turn the first intuition into an ambitious jewelry project, where forms and spiral surfaces would be transformed into gold, silver and diamonds.

Solo io, creativity of an Italian family

Solo io Jewels made in Italy ® is an Italian brand conceived and developed in 2013 by a Roman family with a long tradition in the field of design.

It was founded by mother and daughter, both architects with a very special passion for the Renaissance and the Baroque architecture of Rome, which inspire all the SOLO IO creations. The jewels originating from this special creative energy are therefore unique in their forms and surfaces.

Solo io, craftsmanship and made in Italy

All Solo io Jewels made in Italy ® jewels are made in Rome, exclusively by hand and fully respecting the wise craftsmanship of Italian tradition. The creations arise from a pencil sketch, which is then carved out from wax by hand. The final object is then handcrafted through the traditional lost wax technique. Later, all the single elements are assembled, the stones are mounted, and the jewel is perfected and polished again by hand. Due to the complex and deep spiral surfaces, such a delicate procedure requires time, care and a lot of patience. This is the reason why Solo io Jewels made in Italy ® can produce a limited number of jewels. As a matter of fact,  the fusion may need to be repeated more than once. The beauty of this long process is then reflected in the value of each jewel which is therefore unique.

Solo io, between tradition and modernity

The Solo io Jewels made in Italy ® creations with their original spiral geometries are undoubtedly particular, almost sculptural, characterized by a clear tridimensional effect, a magic stylistic union of classic and modern.

As a matter of fact, Solo io Jewels made in Italy ® interprets a sophisticated feminine flavor, thus offering an exclusive, unique and timeless jewel.

Solo io, a lucky brand

The happy formal intuition of Solo io Jewels made in Italy ®, inspired by the sinuosity of Renaissance and Baroque palazzos in Rome was turned into a concrete start-up in 2014.

Then, the Solo io Jewels made in Italy ® project was granted a special fund for the creation and development of startups in the field of cultural and creative activity, by the Regione Lazio, the local administrative body, which would launch Solo io Jewels made in Italy ® on  national and international on-line markets.

Solo io, not only jewels

In addition to the design of unique jewels, Solo io Jewels made in Italy ® creates amazing and elegant accessories, each one associated with a special creative story. Imagination and fantasy continuously inspire new style challenges ranging from art-silk foulards to precious hair accessories and much more. In each element is reflected the soft and elegant touch of Solo io.
