If you want to undertake a career in Jewellery Design, Italy is a fantastic destination where to study or to perfect your skills. Why? Here are 3 reasons why you should consider becoming a jewellery designer in Italy.
1. Famous Icons and Authentic Artisans
Italy is the birthplace of countless amazing jewel designers and brands like Bulgari, Pomellato, Damiani, Buccellati, Delfina Delettrez and Roberto Coin. But, in addition to these internationally acclaimed jewellery brands, the country is full of small or family-run ateliers where artisans use century-old techniques to create beautiful and quality jewellery with gold, gemstones and pearls, often also experimenting with new materials and innovative designs.
2. Teaching Excellence and Course Variety
Italy has many quality schools with passionate and experienced teachers who personally follow their students. The best schools also offer functional, clean and spacious environments, such as a main workshop area with the tools you need for the training, but also additional rooms for embossing, engraving, enamelling, welding and micro-casting, 3D computer design… And don’t forget the variety of courses! For example, jewellery courses for beginners can include Design and drawing, 3d computer design, gemstone cutting; and there are specialization courses such as wax and precision casting, enamelling, engraving and stone-setting.
3. Location and Full-Immersion
A school in a great setting can have a positive influence on your study abroad experience. Can you imagine studying in a jewellery school in Florence’s historic centre? After class, you can go admire the crafts of local artisans in the market, in small ateliers or in designer boutiques. Florence is also home to the Silver Museum (Museo degli Argenti) covering twenty-five rooms in Palazzo Pitti and collecting various kinds of precious objects and jewels that document the sumptuous life of the princes and dynasties that ruled Tuscany. You get to experience jewellery, crafts and art inside but also outside of your course!
