Unique objects

“I consider a successful object when I can balance the natural element – the beautiful shape of a stone, of a color, of a transparencie – with the element of the artifice that I have molded: neither must prevail over the other, the most beautiful things are in balance.”


Since 1908

In 1908 Edoardo Pestelli, after an apprenticeship with the Marchesini jewelers, opened the first Pestelli jewelry store in the center of Florence, becoming a reference point for the upper bourgeoisie of the time. In 1911 he took part in the international fair in Rome and started to export his jewels in Europe and in the United States.

In 1920 Pestelli jewelry moved to Via Tornabuoni in Florence and – in 1935 – in the prestigious Via Strozzi, a few steps from the current atelier. In the same years the company asserted itself among the international nobility. Among the customers we find the House of Savoy, the royals of Romania, the vice-king of Egypt and the Vatican.

In 1989 the Pestelli jewelry moved into the current atelier in Borgo SS. Apostoli and passes under the guidance of the great-grandson Tommaso who – continuing the family tradition – designs and personally realizes each work together with his wife Eva Aulmann. The Pestelli brand continues to establish itself both nationally and internationally by collaborating with Maison Talmaris in Paris, Bergdorf & Goodman in New York and Degand in Brussels.

In 2011 the Pestelli jewelery was certified as an “Italian Historical Company”. Some of his creations are exhibited in the permanent goldsmith’s collection at the prestigious Museo degli Argenti in Florence. In 2018 – for its 110 years of activity – the Pestelli company receives the “DNA Artigiano” award assigned by Confartigianato.

Ogni oggetto è un'opera d'arte unica curata in ogni più piccolo dettaglio; un piacere per gli occhi e la mente! Imperdibili poi gli oggetti ispirati alla Wunderkammer! No cinque ma dieci stelle!

We have bought many pieces from Tommaso and Eva Pestelli and they have all been wonderful. I also sent them a parcel of stones and Tommaso made me a wonderful ring as a suprise design - it is perfect! Thank you Pestelli, you are great!

Spettacolari e finissime in ogni caso, in qualche esito senza paragoni. Nella mia lunga carriera di conoscitore di metalli antichi ho diretto restauri, proposto acquisti allo Stato e consigliato per la salvaguardia delle nostre più preziose opere antiche. Tra cinquant'anni le cose realizzate in questa bottega meriteranno eguale trattamento.

Si vous passez par Florence cet été, ne ratez pas l'inmanquable atelier de joaillerie artisanale d'exception Pestelli.

Eccellente artigiano, merita assolutamente una visita nel suo laboratorio.

In the heart of Florence

The Pestelli jewelry is in Borgo Santi Apostoli 20/r - in the heart of Florence - a few steps from Ponte Vecchio and all the main monuments of the city.
