Beginning in Tuscany, the Italian Renaissance became the world’s Renaissance, with Italy flourishing in the arts, architecture, literature, and even science that influenced all of Europe and ultimately the Western World. In the spirit of this historic rebirth of creativity, Scheherazade will host an exclusive Jewels of Italy event featuring Lombardi of Italy Jewelry Designers Thursday, July 20, from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm each day.
An integral part of the Galleria’s many upscale shops since the luxury lifestyle center’s opening in 1974, Scheherazade is home to many exclusive jewelry designers – a number of them from Italy, a country, people and culture that throughout history has combined artistic expression with inspired innovation. Lombardi of Italy Jewelry Designers embodies the best of Italy’s rich jewelry making history by combining superb technical mastery with breathtaking jewelry designs.
The birth of artistic jewelry expression and passion does not always happen in ideal times. Carlo Lombardi, the patriarch of Lombardi of Italy Jewelry Designers, started his company in 1940. World War II began the year before. And, in 1943, Italy had fallen into a civil war. But even in these dangerous and tumultuous times, Carlo Lombardi started his jewelry making company with a driving purpose in mind – giving his family a better way of life. While war transitioned to peace, Carlo Lombardi and his wife began building their jewelry company as Europe began rebuilding.
As the budding jewelry company grew, Lombardi of Italy Jewelry Designers became known for its exceptional workmanship of inspired jewelry designs crafted in high karat yellow gold and fine silver. For more than two decades, Carlo Lombardi supplied the best jewelry stores in Europe. In 1969, Carlo’s son Piero Lombardi took over the business, eventually bringing his family’s traditional artistic allure beyond Europe’s borders to international markets.
True to Italian spirit of innovation, as the family jewelry business grew it began to revolutionize – not just with creative expression but the science of jewelry making. Lombardi of Italy Jewelry Designers has developed an original, proprietary advanced form of fine enamel work for their jewelry; most notable is the designer’s Signature Butterfly Collection.
This nature-inspired collection is Italian artistry at its best, combining superb technical mastery with the creative spirit that can elevate the heart like a butterfly in flight. Scheherazade invites its customers to the store’s two-day Jewels of Italy event. Piero Lombardi, the founder’s son, will be at the event to share his family’s history of jewelry making and to showcase current and new jewelry collections. Special Italian wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served. And, there will also be informal modeling of Lombardi fine jewelry.
Please mark your calendars for Scheherazade’s Jewels of Italy event featuring jewelry from Lombardi of Italy Jewelry Designers Thursday, July 20, from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm each day.
