Vintage jewellery by Ornella bijoux


Dolci Trame and Aloe&Wolf vintage stores host Ornella bijoux vintage jewelry until the end of December.

The talented Alessandra Aloe (owner of the vintage research shop), supported by Elisabetta Teri, Federica Orazi and all the highly competent staff of Dolci Trame store bring to Siena the vintage bijoux, really beautiful.

Ornella bijoux was founded in Milan in 1944, when it was offered to Piera Barni, then secretary of the company, the opportunity to take over the jewelery collection.

Piera set up her own business and founded Ornella bijoux. The daughter, then fifteen years old, Maria Vittoria Albani Scala supports her in the enterprise and immediately becomes an important subject for the brand. Her creative vein immediately shows a love for beauty and her creations of jewelry are refined and elegant.

Over the years styles change inspirations: from abstract art to art nouveau. The materials are pearls, enamelled metals, Murano glass, painted woods, Swarovski crystals and ceramics. This mixture of materials gives rise to brooches, bracelets, necklaces and marvelous rings.

Give a bijoux

When I saw the collection in the Siena shop, I literally fell in love with it. How to resist the colorful butterflies or the shiny bees to put on the finger or the neck?

If you take a look at the pieces you will understand why even Grace Kelly has bought some pins and you will understand why brands like Celine, Swarovski, Dolce & Gabbana, just to mention a few, have made use of her collaboration.

Currently, Maria Vittoria, who is over eighty, is flanked by her daughter, Simona Scala, who will probably continue the tradition of women family.

If you don’t have the opportunity to visit Dolci Trame shop in Siena, go to see the web site and you will also find the online sale.

It’s Christmas, give yourself a bijoux!
