Heir to a family of goldsmiths, Pino Rabolini created Pomellato in 1967. The son of a precious stone dealer, he found that renowned goldsmiths and major jewellery houses lacked boldness... The name, Pomellato, that he chose to signify his creations, brought to mind dappled horses, which means that the coat is spotted. Under this name, he was one of the first to introduce a different philosophy and a new delicateness in the world of jewellery, while demanding quality artisanal work. He created fantasy contemporary ornaments that women wore as accessories. The style that signifies Pomellato jewellery is characterized especially by work with semi-precious stones that is still misunderstood and underestimated, a certain cut and size of stones, the very free mixture of colours, and a completely simplistic chicness. The graphic shapes of Pomellato jewellery are refined, with gold processed in a modern way: hammered, sandblasted, and glossed. Pomellato collections occur closer in rhythm with fashion than with jewellery. At the end of the 1980s, Pomellato was the jeweller in mind. Riding on success, its founder multiplied its creations and boutiques.
Some collections became emblematic: Re and Regina pendants (1970s), Griffe rings (1995), Gourmette (1997), Lucciole (2000), Victoria (2001), Nudo (2001), and M'ama non m'ama (2009). In 1995, the Pomellato House created "Dodo" and endorsed a new generation of jewellery: pieces with messages, worn by men as well as by women that were cross-generational. In 2007, Pomellato invested in high end jewellery with the “Pom Pom” collection; these rings were unique, sophisticated, unconventional, and developed with rare large or irregularly shaped stones.
Since April 2013, Pomellato has joined with the Kering group. Pomellato jewellery is made in Italy and uses top quality stones and materials, always delicate and whimsical.
