Discover what’s going on in in the world of jewellery and watches in your part of the world.
While Rome is all about the city’s past of papal pomp and cinema glamour, Milan is an Italian paradox; it may be Italy’s wealthiest city, but it is also its most discreet. Since its beginnings as the ancient Roman city of Mediolanum, Milan has been all about business. Nowadays, Milan mediates between the Italian love of beauty and an almost Nordic practicality. No wonder Milan’s greatest artist is Leonardo da Vinci - consummate problem solver and aesthete. The boutiques selected here - from a rich field of competitors - produce jewellery and watches that marry form and function. The riches sold in these six destinations are for real life and real work (even Bodino’s, provided your profession is diva).
