Any shopper worth her Chopard knows Venice is home to Murano, the world’s epicentre of glassmaking, but if you’ve loaded up on glass and want even bolder bling…
Then you’ll want to pay Antonia Miletto a visit in San Marco. This Rome native and fine jewellery designer jet-sets between her bases in Venice and New York, and after more than 20 years in the biz is still crafting seasonal collections that are both sophisticated and idiosyncratic.
Her nouvelle classics have become a staple in many a local stylista’s accessory wardrobe, beloved for chicly combining materials like ebony, rare gems, exotic woods, and of course, diamonds (with everything hand-carved and finished by hand by her team in Milan and Florence).
Whether for yourself or as souvenirs for your best gal pals, Miletto’s wares are gorgeous, memorable and timeless – take that, Murano!
