My name is Erika, I was born in Vicenza Italy, a city known as the Gold City.
Vicenza is a beautiful place in the North of Italy, unfortunately sometimes forgotten by foreign tourists who usually prefer the much more famous Venice and Verona.
In Vicenza there is a high number of jewellery companies, and the city hosts the most important Jewellery exhibition worldwide: VicenzaOro.
All my life I travelled around the world and I lived in Shanghai and in Hong Kong for more than 13 years. I really love Asia with all its diversity and mix cultures.
In my travelling I met and talked to many people and when it came to talk about my work as Italian jewellery sale manager, I found that the topic always lights up a sparkle of interest, admiration and attention.
Italian jewellery are beautiful precious accessories, most of the time piece of art.
Italian goldsmiths combine their sense of art, fine taste, style with creativity and despite the competitiveness of the world nowadays, they are still capable to create unique, essential, special jewels.
Famous jewellery brands, the worldwide known jewel producers, and the unknown artisan goldsmiths all have in common a style that comes from their being Italian and their origin and their jewellery speak loud for them!
I call them all artists, jewellery artists, as they are able to give life to their creative ideas and model precious materials and stones with style and innovation.
They are our modern heritage.
In our AEYKO journey you will feel like you are in Italy, thanks to the jewels made by the best artisan in the world and chosen by the best experts in the sector.
