“Jewellery has always been an important passion and meaningful topic in my family”
ELISABETTA DE SIMONE NIQUESA
CEO Luigi and Creative Director Elisabetta de Simone Niquesa, found love in Rome when they discovered a shared passion for rare gemstones. For Luigi, this fascination stems from earlier times, fuelled by an intrigue for a diamond cutting business in Tel Aviv, part of his family’s business.
Similarly, Elisabetta was immersed in the world of fine jewels from a young age; her great uncle, renowned cameo engraver Tommaso Saulini, created an exceptional piece portraying Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, set with onyx, diamonds, emeralds and rubies, which is now on display at the Victoria & Albert museum in London.
The couple, moved to London and set up their jewellery business with the launch of the atelier town house in the heart of Belgravia, providing an exclusive and unrivalled bespoke service. Over the years, the brand has gained international reputation for its sculptural silhouettes and captivating gemstones and it’s this recognition that has led to the opening of its very first flagship store in South Kensington.
Love and passion are the driving forces behind the brand. Whether it’s an exquisite bespoke creation or a complete collection; Niquesa Fine Jewellery seeks to create future heirlooms of extraordinary beauty, hand crafted by the finest Italian craftsman, and designed to be cherished for generations.
