Francesco Iorio’s debut in the world of jewellery came in 1984. He was just thirteen when he decided to attend a goldsmith and watchmaking training class in Basilicata. His interest in goldsmithing became clear enough to move to Florence to continue his studies in Jewellery Design and Stone Setting, alongside master artisans of the time.
Founded in 1996, Il Perseo pays homage to the most famous work of the Florentine sculptor and goldsmith Benvenuto Cellini, as a reminder of Iorio’s time in Florence.
In 2015 He moved to London in order to further refine his technique. He started working in Hatton Garden street, where he specialized in working with platinum and diamonds.
Back in the future
In September 2016 the project FRANCESCO IORIO was born with the aim to provide new services through the creation of custom designed objects made of precious metals, and a new handmade jewelry collection in gold and silver, destined for the domestic and export markets.
