IOSSELLIANI begins in Rome in 1997 from the gathering of Roberta Paolucci and Paolo Giacomelli. Both designers's research is based on new materials; their first collections, in fact have a great success due to the special techniques used during production, such as a fusion of stainless steel mesh and silver as well as hand-carved crystals collection. Strongly influenced by the Italian classic jewelry, Paolo and Roberta combine their love for vivid materials crafted into modern shapes with the enormous heritage of tradition. Traditional icons, classic ornaments and modern symbols are then bravely read and translated into a new perception of details, creating a transversal, contemporary jewelry. Paolo Giacomelli studies and graduates in literature with the highest grade. He follows his passion for handcrafted jewels while apprenticing in one of the last "botteghe" in Rome, where he learns from a master artist the traditional goldsmith techniques. In fact, he still makes all prototype of the IOSSELLIANI collection. Roberta Paolucci is jewelry and interior designer.
They have both worked and cooperated with Romeo Gigli, Missoni, Fiorucci, Alessandro Dell'Acqua, Antonio Marras, Kenzo. IOSSELLIANI opened its first flagship store in 2004, the second one in Tokyo Shibuya in 2008.
