Debuting at Masterpiece London, Fabio Salini dazzled the most seasoned collectors by highlighting more than one-hundred of his creations. Jewels that speak of goldsmithing tradition while looking towards art avant-garde.
Striving towards new experimentation, Fabio Salini builds bridges between tradition and futurism, linking history and beauty in timeless designs that share a dialogue with contemporary art.
Every creation reflects his passion for gems and his unique way of blending them to have forms, colours, innovation, and that timeless touch in perfect balance.
The jewel as we classically know it is then transfigured thanks to Salini’s aptitude at working in contrasts and bold juxtapositions by experimenting with new materials and by matching them creating daring levels of self-expression.
The pieces displayed at Masterpiece perfectly prove this fine balance with signature more classic pieces shown alongside his bold new works in carbon and titanium.
An increasing interest in contemporary art imbued in Fabio, new ideas for more conceptual pieces, and a desire to bring jewellery back to a level of emotional value through pieces that communicate a message linked to a somewhat rebellious force of their design and the evocative power stemming from the numerous sophisticated stylistic references that give each one a rounded cultural value.
Fabio Salini graduated in Geology from the University of Rome, and as he focused his thesis on emeralds, found that his passion for the earth and materials ignited within him a desire to pursue a career in jewellery.
Fabio later worked for the creative departments of Maison Cartier and Bulgari where he sharpened his skills as a jewellery designer and deepened his artistic knowledge and sensibility.
Of 1999 is his first collection, Crystal, launched at Petochi, the legendary jewellery boutique in Piazza di Spagna, Rome.
Then in 2004, in Via di Monserrato in Rome, he opened his Atelier, an elegant sales salon and the nerve centre of his business, which spread rapidly around the world with his participation in international jewellery and art events in Basel, Shanghai, New York, London, Paris, Palm Beach and Geneva.
