The people behind the pieces

Romanelli Team

Romanelli Legacy

The Romanelli Designs team is a family business, created and founded by Cosmo and Maria Romanelli. Descendant of a proudly Italian family, we want our customers to feel like they can come and sit at our table and become a part of “La nostra famiglia”, Our Family. With this in mind, we want to create a structure where our clients become personally involved in the jewellery-making process and experience this industry first hand. Our team of like-minded professionals were specially selected to embrace this vision. With your imagination and our skill set, we sculpt the items of jewellery that you have dreamed of but could never find in any retail stores. Our family of skilled experts are dedicated to your custom jewellery design and we will guarantee the best personal jewellery design and manufacturing experience.

Our philosophy of Value for Money is deeply entrenched within our family. Our team understands that every client should be treated like an extension of our family and, therefore, we measure ourselves based on how closely we achieve the value for money goal.


We love to help those in need. Want to see our philanthropy projects?
