The extraordinary passion evident in this work is as true in today's collections as it was nearly two centuries ago. Like the patriarchs before him, Alfredo Aletto has devoted his life to the elusive art of crafting fine jewelry, immersing himself in all aspects of the process, inlcuding design, lapidary work and stone setting. This is where the story continues, in addition to crafting timeless, world-famous jewels. Alfredo Aletto remains deeply committed to his heritage by taking on three apprentices-his sons, Alberto, Luigi and Mario. Alberto, the eldest, was eager to follow in his father's footsteps and has worked in the family business for 11 years, now serving as a mentor to his younger brothers. after all, they are also his fellow artists and business partners. Together, Alfredo and his three sons work in balance the increasing demands of business and daily life, while offering ech other the kind of inspiration, love and support that is only found with family. Sempre famiglia.
Five generation later, from Naples to Caracas to new York, Boca Raton, Florida is now home to Aletto Brothers. Their small shop is the birthplace of some of the world's finest gold and gemstone treasures, which include modern interpretations of classic design. Even as times change, however, the Aletto's stay grounded in their family history and their gift for immaculate art.
As masters of the invisible setting, the Aletto family takes pride in passing down this skilled technique from father to sons for five generations. Never mass-produced, their handcrafted work is authentic from beginning to end, and the journey of a single piece is equally impressive as the end result.
After refining design sketches and shaping the metal, each stone is selected to capture the perfect clarity and depth of color. Then the meticulous lapidary and stone setting work begins, as each exquisitely intricate design takes months to complete. The Aletto Brothers' artistic craetions of sapphires, rubies and diamonds embody the very elegance that is eagerly sought by connissseurs at the illustrious Sotheby's and Christie's auction houses.
Another craftsman spearheading the invisible-setting resurgence is Alfredo Aletto, a master jeweler and eldest of the four Aletto Brothers jewelers in Florida. The Aletto family has been making jewelry for four generations. Their great-grandfather was commissioned to create a work for the inauguration of the Eiffel Tower. These days, Alfredo labors an entire year to create just eight to 10 pieces of invisibly set jewelry, the most exquisite of which are auctioned at Sotheby’s and Christie’s. In 1990, Aletto Brothers had Sotheby’s auction an invisibly set sapphire-and-diamond flower brooch with matching earclips. The auction estimate was listed at $125,000-$175,000. The three pieces sold for $320,000, the most ever paid at auction for invisibly set sapphires.
