Last week I visited the Italian jewellery company Pomellato at its headquarters in Milan. Behind the high walls of the nondescript building are not only the company offices but also its extensive workshops, where every one of its jewels is made, from melting the gold to finished product.

I went inside the workshops to see how Pomellato makes its jewels and what techniques it employs, and discovered that the lost wax method of casting is preferred for almost every piece of jewellery.

I saw over 100 craftsmen at work. Amongst them were casters, gem-setters, jewellers and even a team dedicated to manning the smelters, where the house's own special-colour gold alloys are mixed.

I then had the chance to catch up with CEO Andrea Morante, who told me about the house's history and what makes Pomellato different from other jewellers.

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
