Office & Systems Administrator
Fope Jewellery Ltd
Umberto Cazzola, first of the Cazzola’s dynasty of jewellers, opened his first goldsmith’s workshop with about 20 employees back in 1929, eventually passing on his innovative, pioneering approach to his son Odino. Today Fope is an internationally renowned jewellery brand, which has been a Responsible Jewellery Council member since 2013 and a certified member in 2014. Inspired by its provenance and by the values that have always steered the company, in 2019 FOPE underwent a new brand identity to mark the 90th anniversary of the company which has remained in ownership by the same family since its inception.
