Kate Whitney - From the ancient peninsula of Croton in Southern Italy hails an artist so elegant and chic, his jewelry is simply a reflection of his brilliant artistry. Gerrado Sacco, the famous master Goldsmith, brings the old world charm and depth to the New modern world of fashion and style.
Gerardo Sacco's creations are rich in historical significance, recalling the ancient past of the Italian Southern Peninsula as a colony of ancient Greece. (Magna Grecia, the Latin translation of "Great Greece", was the name the ancient Greeks gave to that particular area of Italy.) The techniques used are those that the master Goldsmith has recovered from the past, inspired by the backgrounds of this beautiful region.
For over forty years, Gerardo Sacco has been successful in the field of artistic jewelry design, incorporating styles and features from the Magno-Grecian, Byzantine, renaissance, baroque and deco cultures. Every piece is a work of art, handmade and unique. The impressive selection of earrings, bracelets, necklaces, rings and broaches capture the beauty and elegance of both the originality and quality of Gerardo Sacco.
Several of Gerardo Sacco's magnificent and unique pieces have been exhibited in numerous museums in Verona, Venice, Rome, Naples and seven religious creations are currently on display in the Vatican's Museum.
His style while elegant and sophisticated has now broached to the hip and conscious and is flooding such cities as New York and Los Angeles.
With his new line I Pupi de Gerrado Sacco, he is introducing the ‘Opera of the Puppets’, an exclusive collection of 14 ancient figures that distinguish certain values to emulate in our every day lives. From the Courageous to the Independent, these figures, worn as necklace pendants or bracelet charms, are as exquisite and detailed on the outside as they are symbolic of that which they stand for.
Known as Diva Goldsmith - Gerardo Sacco has been creating for some of the most elegant women of our time including Elizabeth Taylor, Brooke Shields, Isabella Rosallini and the stunning Maria Grazia Cucinotta. Maria Grazia, a Sicilian born actress known for her beautiful performance in Il Postino, is shown here exhibiting the powerful magnificence of Gerardo Sacco's work.
While haling from Italy, the works of Gerardo Sacco are available in the most well known cities both in Europe and in the States through an importer and distributor of fine Italian Jewelry called EighteenK.

I don't believe in coincidence - I believe in Divine Alignment and in meeting the creators of Eighteenk and the brilliant works of Gerardo Sacco, I have been exposed to beautiful, luxurious, conscious raising works that feel as good as they look. Their weight is that of true gold and coming into a time on the planet where to "feel the way we want to be and thus creating what we see", this jewelry is a powerful tool in being that we wish to be.
