Rubinia was born in Portofino in 1985 from an idea by Ilario Plazzi, a pleasant man with a moustache who stumbled by chance upon the world of jewellery after having had some significant experiences in the cosmetics and clothing sectors.
His creative soul and great sensitivity enables him to imagine and interpret jewellery pieces as fashion accessories, dedicated to women who live and wear their jewellery daily, matching them to the clothes they wear.
The encounter with Roberto Ricci took place in 1995, and their complementary nature allowed the world of Rubinia – a world still shared by the two men 20 years later – to become a place of excellence where jewellery pieces are conceived and designed as if they were really tailored clothes, in a constant and passionate search for new and amazing materials and colour combinations.
Every jewellery piece is unique because it is hand-made, and the result of a study on the style, cutting and colour: Roberto has always worked on the uniqueness of the individual, and for years has been reflecting on how to create unique pieces for unique people.
creatività e sensibilità
The world of Rubinia is open to young people, to their creativity and energy. And that is why we also collaborate with universities and design institutes to actively involve students. We pay careful attention to what surrounds us and we study the market carefully to make our creations, meeting groups of trendsetters: Rubinia’s laboratory is open to everyone and these encounters lead to the birth of new proposals and ideas.
Furthermore, Rubinia has always been a company attentive to those who are in difficult circumstances, supporting various charitable initiatives. For the last three years, it has donated part of its proceeds to educational projects of Children in Crisis Italy, Onlus (non-profit organisation) and to the P.U.P.I. Foundation, and is an active participant in the Convivio market-fair.
Jewellery tailors: we have put art and passion in our new, timeless creations. A work team that has been working with dedication and professionalism for years, to create jewellery that can be recognised through the beauty of the shapes and value of every detail.
