Repossi is a fine jewelry house founded in 1920 in Turin, Italy.[1] The house currently operates two stores, in Paris and Monaco, with its creations being sold in 69 sales points worldwide.[2]

History[edit]

In 2013, Gaia Repossi won the "Best jewelry designer of the Year" award at the Elle Style Awards.[3]



In 2015, a partnership with luxury conglomerate LVMH was announced through which LVMH acquired a minority share in the fine jewelry house.[1][4][5]

In 2016, Repossi’s Paris flagship store, located on historical Place Vendôme, re-opened after the redesigning by Dutch avant-garde architect Rem Koolhaas and his OMA practice.[6][7]
