Vehement and independent, these are the traits of the Martinelli women. Constantly challenged in a competitive industry, the Martinellis were goldsmiths known for their deep passion for jewellery.
Succeeding her maternal grandmother, Hedy Martinelli now runs her own namesake jewellery brand together with her daughters, Francesca and Alessandra, based in Rome. Producing unique pieces to meet modern demands, the mother and daughters have since experimented with jewellery materials. Testing and combining materials such as gold, platinum, iron and steel, the handmade jewellery collections have a signature robust and burnished look to it.
