About Us


Ornella Iannuzzi is an established London-based artist jeweller creating mainly one-of-a-kind pieces of high end jewellery. Famous for her unique award-winning pieces, Ornella’s motto (from Ralph Waldo Emerson): "Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail" feeds her unusual and innovative approach to high-end jewellery.

  Her work combines the souls of high fashion and avant-garde into distinctive and powerful pieces which are uncompromising in craftsmanship. Characterized by harmonious composition of materials, colours, and textures - with an incredible attention to details - her “Fine Art Jewellery” collections have forged her reputation in the industry. 

“I consider myself as an ‘artist’ – and not a ‘designer’ – as I always strive to give a soul to my pieces as well as working on the aesthetic. By using natural elements combined with classified ‘precious materials’ I want to convey a message which is that nowadays, it is Nature which is precious! So through jewellery I aim to bring Nature at a precious level, and pay homage to it. I want to bring attention to the incredible beauty laying in its details and I feel very privileged to be working around rare and unique natural wonders created over billion of years.”


“Jeweller Ornella Iannuzzi is unlike other jewellers. While many say they are inspired by nature, none do it quite like Ornella. Born in the Alps, you can feel the raw power of Nature that must have impressed a young Ornella as she gazed at the majestic mountains that dwarf all around them. Ornella turns her fascination with the genesis of the planet into jewels that are miniature landscapes to wear.”  Maria Doulton – The Jewellery Editor
