A SELECTION OF OUR PRODUCTS
AN EXCLUSIVE AND PRECIOUS ORNAMENT
The details narrate your history and are a symbol of originality and refinement.
Even the smallest fashion accessories such as cuff links, tie-pins, button covers, pendants, bracelets and necklaces represent details that speak volumes about the elegance and personality of the wearer.
To express your taste 100% or to give a personalised item, Picchiani e Barlacchi puts at your disposal the mastery of our artists and sculptors and the heritage of the finest Florentine engravers, printers and artisans who for over 110 years have shaped unique and refined works.
Today, many companies prefer to save money, using substandard materials and rough and ready processing and the result is that very often very mediocre accessories are produced which last only a few days.
In this way you are forced to use an object without any value or meaning which does not reflect your tastes and your values.
… SHAPE YOUR EXCELLENCE!
To give and wear an object that represents you, invest in a precious accessory that does not go out of fashion and does not lose value over time.
Since 1902 Picchiani e Barlacchi has been creating unique accessories finished by hand according to family tradition, ensuring a result to a professional standard that exceeds even the most demanding of expectations.
The engravers, designers, printers, galvanic finishers and many other professionals unceasingly work raw materials to make your object unique.
OUR VALUES AND OUR SENSE OF BELONGING
Florence is the most famous city of art in the world, cradle of the Renaissance and still today a land rich in culture, tradition and craftsmanship.
Workers have always found fertile ground in this city to develop and promote excellence and professionalism and this was also the case for Picchiani e Barlacchi that since 1896 has continued its activity almost unaltered.
Since the official foundation of the company in 1902 these have been our values:
We believe in tradition, on which our company is based.
This is why we are against any form of improvisation: our objects are not just pieces of metal but precious memories to celebrate a special occasion, so they must be created to a professional standard.
We believe in Made in Italy, a precious resource of our country envied throughout the rest of the world.
We despise any attempt at imitation and any form of homologation that degrades the history of our country, the creative scope of our artists and craftsmen and the excellence of our products.
We firmly believe in quality.
This is why we avoid standardising and flattening our products, even when the operation would have an economic advantage. In no case do we cut corners on attention to detail or the perfection of the final product.
This is our philosophy; these are the valuesthat guide every stage of working of our products, from the conception of the design to the finishing and quality control.
