Favero was founded in 1973 by Mariano Favero in Bassano del Grappa in the northeast of Italy. This area has been famous for the working of gold throughout the centuries and also for being the birthplace of artists such as Palladio and Canova who, in the classical period of the fifteen and seventeen hundreds, established the ground rules for those extraordinary works of art now so well known to all.
Discipline and balance characterize the beautifully crafted works of Mariano Favero who began his career as a graduate of the Venice Art Institute. Today Favero works mainly in 18 carat gold with the finest quality diamonds as well as precious gems creating powerful, colorful collections.
Despite increasing worldwide recognition Mariano Favero's workshop remains true to the spirit and production techniques of the traditional craft center. At the prestigious 2003 Couture Design Awards the company won the "Best Designer of the Year" prize in the Haute Couture category demonstrating the high level of appreciation for the elegance and originality of Favero's designs that now exists on the international stage.
