ABOUT THE DESIGNER

1884 Collection is a fine jewelry brand that infuses Italian heritage into modern, stylistic designs. Sixth generation Roman jeweler, Alberto Petochi, attributes the modern aesthetics and sophistication of 1884 Collection to his family’s 100-year legacy. Incorporating original ancient Roman coins in all of its pieces, 1884 Collection offers the highest quality in Italian craftsmanship. Using the finest of materials, the line offers a piece of history set in a fresh and forward way. In the year 1884, the Petochi family opened its jewelry shop at #50, Via Della Croce, an elegant exhibition and sales area in Rome. Guided by passion and dedication, the business quickly grew, catching the attention of Prince Alessandro Torlonia. The Prince invited the family to move its business to his palace and from that day forward, the Petochi atelier became legendary in the world of Roman aristocracy. The Petochi family atelier supplied the most important monarchs in Europe, particularly the Italian Royal Household. Eventually the family moved one last time to its current headquarters in Piaza di Spagna where the traditional production of the brand’s exclusive and custom made creations continues to take place.
