Owner Monica Rossi works exclusively in pink or white gold, which master artisans trained in Milan’s metalworking tradition cut and etch with arabesques and renaissance motifs.
It is fitting that the Anaconda shop where Monica Rossi sells her elegant and poetic bohemian jewels is around the corner from Milan’s university. Rossi’s delicate traceries echo the brickwork and cloisters of the 15th century university building, built by Duke Francesco Sforza. Anaconda started out in 1980 as a concept store where Rossi sold accessories and clothes that expressed her search for harmony and simplicity. By 1987, the silver jewellery she had designed and sold had evolved into precious stones and gold.
Rossi loves the soft tones of stem rubies, moonstones, opals and mine-cut diamonds. She also chooses the poems engraved on her pieces and accommodates customers’ requests for special words. Her clients have followed her evolution and inspire the pieces Rossi most enjoys designing: those that turn clients’ special treasures, such as antique reliquaries and ex votos, into unique jewels for daily wear and contemplation.
For a mystical piece of wearable poetry, visit Anaconda - an independent jewellery boutique just a short walk from Milan's university.
Anaconda sells only jewels created by Monica Rossi, which are crafted by top Milanese artisans.
Anaconda offers a bespoke wedding and engagement ring service and can inscribe jewellery with poetry to commemorate a special day.
