It’s not very often at Horologii that we get to delve into the world of luxury jewellery, but when it comes to Fope it’s hard not to. The Italian manufacturer has been creating breathtaking collections of jewellery for nearly a century and they have more recently released some of our favourite things: Fope watches!
Fope has a truly fascinating history that goes back to 1929. It all started when a gentleman named Umberto Cazzola opened his first goldsmith’s workshop and alongside his Son, Odino, begun making watchstraps from luxury metals like gold and supplying them to some of Switzerland’s largest watch manufacturers. As they moved into their third generation, Fope decided it was time to take their vast wealth of experience and pour it into creating their own jewellery collections. To this day, Fope remains a family run business focusing on designing signature jewellery pieces and watches for women that stand out as a symbol for high quality Italian craftsmanship and timeless elegance.
Fope Flex’it Jewellery
Probably one of the brand’s most recognisable and successful collections is the Fope Flex’it jewellery. This breathtaking concept of flexible gold bracelets came to the brand in 1960 when they were working in their workshops in Vicenza. As they were creating watch straps for a variety of large Swiss watch manufacturers, they decided it was time to make flexible bracelets entirely and exclusively in gold that were both comfortable and breathtaking.
Fope Flex’it jewellery utilises a special technology and a soft gold mesh to allow the bracelets, necklaces and rings to mould effortlessly to the body. Many of the Fope Flex’it jewellery pieces are also beautifully detailed with precious diamonds and multi-toned layers of gold including rose gold, white gold and yellow gold. The beauty of the Fope Flex’it jewellery collection, particularly the Fope Flex’it bracelets, is that they can also be stacked along the wrist for a statement finish.
