Angela Puttini Jewelry was founded by Signora Angela Puttini whose family has lived in Capri for generations. The idea which gave rise to the firm was to propose pieces of jewellery inspired by the sites, the history, the cultural and popular traditions, as well as the art of goldsmithery of the island and environs, in an location, as Capri has always been, of international tourism. Thus, Tiberius and his long residence on Capri – raising the island to the rank of an imperial capital during this period - Pompeii and its treasures, and the illustrious history of seventeenth and eighteenth century Neapolitan artistic expression became the inspiration for this project which was brought forward with knowing dedication and a particular focus on the centuries-old artisan tradition of crafting corals and cameos of Torre del Greco.
Over the course of the years, the original, never-discarded, idea behind the company has been enriched with new forms of inspiration which are ever more attentive to the trends of contemporary jewellery. In addition to Antonella’s creative work, and her exclusively designed pieces, there are also the no-less enthusing and gratifying creations made by small-scale craftsmen and, occasionally, large jewellery firms. The company’s strong points, recognized by the international press, are the exquisite taste, originality with a touch of folly, which are perfectly in keeping with the shop’s commercial and aesthetic traditions as well as, quite simply, those of the island.
