The De Grisogono jewelry house is located on the legendary rue du Rhône, in Geneva. The establishment was founded by Fawaz Gruosi in 1993. At the beginning, this remarkable jeweler had no aspirations towards becoming one of the world’s prestigious jewelers. It turned out to be a matter of destiny in which after leaving school at the age of 18 years, he acquired employment as a sales assistant in a reputed jewelry house in Florence.
Gruosi found the job appealing as he had a strong sense of appreciation for aesthetics from an early age; he had no idea, at the time, what a huge opening this was going to be for him. His initial job was in no other than the esteemed Maison Bulgari. Following a few decades, Gruosi was ready to make his move towards starting his own business. The world was introduced to De Grisogono, a master brand that was to overturn the world of luxury jewelry.
De Grisogono jewelry pieces can be easily recognized from their asymmetrical shapes, iconic designs, and wonderful hues. The creator is highly gifted, drafting outlines and then fashioning stunning jewelry out of a natural ability for crafting. The jeweler has great confidence in his craftsmanship and has managed to create some of the most magnificent and timeless pieces. Ornaments that are considered worth the formidable price by both men and women of the luxury world.
De Grisogono jewelry masterpieces are much sought-after by people of high fashion, politicians, celebrities, businesswomen, amongst others. From the very start, the jeweler has emphasized the magnificence of his creations with originality and boldness. For instance, jewelers rarely have an interest in adorning ornaments with the black diamond, Gruosi stepped forward, using the gem, to design rings, necklaces, bracelets, etc; producing a unique collection, stirring the atmosphere and designating noble titles to the shunned black diamond. Today, the priceless gem is no longer shunned but its beauty is utilized in adorning ornaments together with rubies, emeralds, sapphires or white diamonds; adding splendor to De Grisogono.
Fawaz Gruosi’s creativeness is endless. In 2000, the brand entered the elite world of Haute Horlogerie; introducing the Instrumento N°Uno which became an instant success owing to De Grisogono watches being distinctive and magnificent in style.
