Bologna. It was 1896 when Giulio Veronesi opened his first workshop, in via Orefici. In 1920 he moved to Palazzo Ronzani and began to involve his older sons, Raffaello and Galileo, in the business, soon leaving them to manage the firm.
During the 1940s, the Veronesi jewellery business made a name for itself with its expertise and creativity. Then war and evacuation put a stop to the family business for 2 years. However, the years of rebuilding led to an important achievement.
In 1964, the Gemini ring won the Diamonds International Award in New York, becoming the world’s best piece of jewellery for that year and symbolising the story of a family.

The company continues to produce jewellery to exclusive designs; ideas develop into unique collections and the public understands that Veronesi is a brand that spells quality and creativity.
