The Demeglio family have been in the jewellery business since 1922. They welcomed their second child, Roberto, in 1966, born in Turin. From an early age Roberto knew when he grew up that he wanted to be a restorer or a goldsmith.
In 1984 Roberto opened his own jewellery laboratory near the workshop of his father, Giuseppe. It was here that he began to develop his own jewellery methods, many of which he would later patent and would garner high praise at international competitions. The Italian designer’s pieces are also recognisable for its use of rarely seen jewellery materials: carbon fibre and ceramic. The latter is present in Roberto’s items in matte and polished form, and sometimes both simultaneously.
