Italian designer Ippolita Rostagno founded Ippolita in 1999 with the goal of using “color, comfort, and exuberance” to bring fine jewelry into the world of fashion. Inspired by both the richness and simplicity of Italian culture, Ippolita is an artist first and designer second. She had discovered a passion for jewelry in the shops on Ponte Vecchio with their costume-style jewelry’s Florentine vibe. As a student of sculpture at the Istituto d'Arte in Florence, she brings a sculptural quality to her jewelry with precious metals and hand-faceted gemstones – everything is handmade and one-of-a-kind. Her collections include earrings, bracelets, necklaces, rings, and charms with prices ranging from accessible and mid-range to high-end.
