Alessio Boschi's passionate Journey
I first met Alessio Boschi about a decade ago, when he served as creative director for an important jewelry company. His designs, using colorful gemstones and pearls, exhibited a level of originality, detail and ingenuity rarely seen in today’s world of fine jewelry.
Over the years, I have followed his career, and am still in awe of his talent and creativity. Let’s take a brief look at the Passionate Journey of this extraordinary artist.

The award-winning spectacular “Homage to the Renaissance” set showcases remarkable micro-mosaics, adorned with pearls and rubellites. The earrings feature lockets that are opened to reveal intricate micro-mosaic paintings of famous Italian motifs, including Michelangelo’s David, with no detail spared. The necklace’s 18 strands of rubellite beads and pearls hold a locket featuring micro-mosaic paintings of the dome of Florence’s Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and Caterina de Medici, regent of France in 1611.
