Nicotra di San Giacomo
Back to Renaissance

Nicotra di San Giacomo Back to Renaissance

Incredible jewels, for both men and women, are available at Alessandro Nicotra’s shop located in the vicinity of Campo de’ Fiori. Based on an old Renaissance technique, gold or silver filaments are woven into wefts and colours chosen by the customer.

The pride of production is the establishment’s “full knit”, gold or silver fabric, an ultra-soft, shiny metal fabric. The result are masterpieces of workmanship that meld in beautifully with the woven fabrics.

His cufflinks, bearing the engraved initials, need I say, of the customer for whom they were designed, are ultra-glam. Available in onyx, coral, enamel, tourmaline or featuring more classic precious stones, they are all unique, unrepeatable pieces.

Nicotra di San Giacomo is featured in A Tailor-made Guidebook – Rome.
