Scavia, prestigious brand of high jewellery, is now known in Italy and around the world for its unmistakable design and the high quality of gems and manufacturing. It represents a cornerstone of Italian luxury, characterised by excellent craftsmanship and a strong stylistic identity.
– Fulvio and Alessandro Scavia –
It all began with a small goldsmith’s atelier, founded in Milan in 1911 by Domenico Scavia, which grew over the years thanks to the work and passion of his daughter Sara and grandson Fulvio Maria. Over a century of history, in which the brand has acquired a position of international leadership.
The precious Scavia creations are characterised by the uniqueness and exclusivity of the design, combined with the technical skills linked to the Italian tradition. Fulvio Scavia says in an interview: “Our jewels are distinguished by quality, innovation and personality and are for people who have refinement and elegance in their hearts. There are places in my memory where my heart traces the history of my family, which is the history of three generations, since 1911: my grandfather, my mother and mine. I inherited my mother’s refined design taste and her colour sensitivity. I first learned to see clearly in my mind and only then take a pencil and draw plastically. I followed this company step by step, like a father with his children. I’ve watched it grow, little by little, and I’ve shared every moment with it, savouring every little and big success.”
In fact, for over a century, Scavia has been at the forefront of the world of Made in Italy luxury. Their jewels have been worn by esteemed personalities such as Queen Sirikit of Thailand and award-winning actresses such as Elizabeth Taylor, Meryl Streep, Sharon Stone, Anna Valle and Catherine Zeta-Jones, among many others.
Each Scavia jewel is characterised by the elegance and exclusivity of the design, combined with the technical skills linked to the Italian tradition. Each creation is unique, distinguished by the refinement of the materials used – 18kt gold, diamonds and precious stones – and by the meticulous care of the manufacturing. All the jewels are conceived and designed by the owner of the company, Fulvio Maria Scavia, handmade by his expert master craftsmen under his direction and produced in Milan in the historic goldsmith atelier in Corso XXII Marzo.
When it comes to Scavia jewellery, designing starts first with an idea. From this follows the technical skill necessary to achieve such perfection. In his creative mind, Fulvio Scavia conceives extraordinarily unique jewels that can change shape, material and colour in a new way every time in order to create an object that can tell its story.
With a totally different design from the others, Scavia jewels are simply exceptional. “Those who buy high-class jewellery want to see the creator in the face, often to entrust him with commissioned work”, explains Fulvio Scavia.
Among the most well-known and iconic Scavia creations is undoubtedly the earring that Fulvio Scavia designed for Elizabeth Taylor on the occasion of her last wedding. The jewel, called Sandra, winner of the DIA award in 1988, was immediately recognised as one of the best designs in the history of fine jewellery.
Scavia is an Italian brand, but today its presence is all over the world with prestigious boutiques and events open to the public or by invitation. In 1984, the first overseas shop was opened in Tokyo. A few years later, in Bangkok. Openings followed in Dubai and Almaty, Kazakhstan. Finally, in the autumn of 2020, the opening of the Scavia boutique in Via Nassa 29, Lugano, took place by the son of Fulvio Scavia, Alessandro.
After fifty years of Scavia history in Via Spiga 9, the boutique moved to Via Rossari 5, between Via Monte Napoleone and Via della Spiga, choosing one of the most intimate and exclusive locations in the fashion district.
