The Good Life:  FOPE and ObservaMé

Italian everyday luxury

 FOPE is an Italian goldsmithing company that has evolved over time into an International fine jewelry brand.  The headquarters, and production facilities, are located in Vicenza, Italy, where the company was established in 1929. Today, all jewelry is still made in-house thanks to a unique combination of craftsmanship and bespoke technology. 

 The FOPE creations share a distinctive character given by the 18ct gold weave that varies in gauge and design.  This signature jewelry represents a quintessentially Italian idea of style which has gained further global recognition with the introduction of Flex’it.  The Flex’it mesh is crafted solely in 18 ct gold and is rendered fully flexible thanks to tiny gold springs hidden between each link and has revolutionized the way bracelets (and rings) can be worn with its original, and patented, roll-on mesh. 

To create a unique, contemporary look for casual, or evening wear, discover FOPE’s latest collections with the versatility of Essentials and the precious details of Vendôme.
