Created with the idea of producing jewels for the Third Millennium, Mattia is credited with bringing the avant-garde concept of a highly technological, innovative jewelry collection to the world of fine jewelry. Each piece of his collection is conceived with a vision of jewelry design as the highest expression of art and as an expression of intuition in the form of a material object, thereby reinterpreting emotions and reconstructing them in a poetic manner. Combined with a passion for long-standing traditional craftsmanship and the latest production technology, Mattia Cielo continues to rewrite jewelry’s architectural rules.
