The Mazza family’s involvement with the jewelry industry dates back almost two centuries in a small town just south of Naples called Torre del Greco.  Starting in the 1840’s, the Mazza family worked with coral and conch shells for cameos, which they harvested and hand carved in Italy.  At the turn of the century the family began importing gems and Mazza carvings to the United States. Today, the family continues to practice the fine jewelry techniques passed from generation to generation using hand carved gemstones as well as 14k and 18k gold to produce fine fashion jewelry in the family tradition.
