A commitment to fine Italian craftsmanship and design is evident in all of The Mazza Company’s prolific collections of jewelry. The Mazza family’s roots in the jewelry industry date back nearly two centuries to a town just south of Naples, Italy called Torre del Greco, where the family began harvesting coral and conch shells with which they hand-carved cameos. After emigrating to the United States, Louis Mazza began importing gems and Mazza carvings to the American market. His four sons later joined the expanding business, and the third son, William, began honing his design acumen by working closely with master designers. Today, William’s three sons, William, Jeffrey and Steven, have joined their father in the family business. Together, the family has continued with the traditions of excellence in design and craftsmanship that have been passed down from generation to generation. While the company was previously unidentified as a supplier of fine gemstones to famous jewelry houses, it is now well-known for its creation of fine, 14k and 18k fashion jewelry. With an emphasis on exquisitely cut gemstones and finely detailed gold work, The Mazza Company’s jewelry is instantly recognizable. Their classic silhouettes take on a decidedly modern flair with unique and interesting color combinations, and their impeccable attention to detail can be seen in the care with which they hand-select their gemstones and the elegant finish to their metal. While any piece of the brand’s extensive selection of jewelry is an instant heirloom that can be passed down for generations, it is consistently current in its appeal to a contemporary style sensibility.
