Overview

In this elegant showroom and shop located on the 1st floor in the Galleria Umberto, you'll find both innovative and traditional coral chiseled jewels and cameos. Ascione was established in 1855 as a company producing finished goods from raw coral. Nowadays, they also create precious boxes, vases and picture frames combining coral, mother of pearl, tortoise shell and ivory. Jewels and objet d'art are all designed and manufactured in the 150-year-old lab located in Torre del Greco, the hometown of coral. The Naples branch also houses an interesting museum dedicated to the history of coral. Besides describing fishing and crafting techniques, the museum displays some of the most significant pieces of the house collection.
