Arianna and Sandra's adventure began with their graduation from the Istituto d'Arte di Cascina and continued in Florence, a city which represent the Italian culture around the world, where they attend Art College. Here, they aquired the foundation of their Goldsmith Techniques and Craftmaship.
So, in 1980 began the artists' journey, when "La Bottega Orafa Il Carato" was opened in the 14th-century clock tower of Cascina, situated in the heart of Tuscany.
The pride of the goldsmith is their attention to detail, an attention to design in the creation of a different piece every time, that fits the needs of the wearer and is therefore unique. The materials of choice, gold and silver, are embellished with the dazzling sheen of diamonds together with an intense color palette of precious and semiprecious stones. Each jewel comes from the minds of the two creators hand implemented in their workshop, following the most ancient goldsmith techniques.
In this way, the signature "Il Carato" pieces are created, including both collections and individual pieces. The elegant studio is open to anyone who has a piece of jewelry in mind or even just an idea and desire to wear something precious.
