Carlo and Francesco Bernardi have perfected details in the making of their jewelry for over 30 years. Growing up with modest means in Veneto, Italy, the siblings toiled away for others while learning the trade until 1987 when they launched Chrysos, a house of authentic Italian gold and silver chains with global appeal. In 2008, they merged innovative techniques with a love of pure shapes and local Italian craftsmanship and Officina Bernardi was born. Created from start to finish in the same palatial compound outside of Venice, Officina Bernardi jewelry is intricately designed with unique machine-made detail and assembled by hand with care for a seamless union of modern luxury and homegrown Italian-made tradition. The inimitable spirit and heritage of Italy, the influence of regional landmarks, such as Venetian and Palladian architecture, and the desire to express their vibrant culture through jewelry is the driving force behind Officina Bernardi. The independent, sophisticated, ambitious and continuously curious individual is whom inspires us. Timeless, stately, effortless chic, our jewelry is both aspirational and attainable. Our signature is a small gold and silver bead, representative of the moon, which is integral to each design. Our Moon Bead is manufactured with high-precision etching methods, mimics the luster of diamonds and is unmatched by other brands. It is the heart of Officina Bernardi’s unique brilliance.
