The Aletto Brothers’ story begins at the turn of the 19th century in Naples, Italy, when Alfredo Aletto’s great grandfather was commissioned to create a special piece of jewelry for the inauguration of the Eiffel Tower at Paris’s Universal Exposition. And the extraordinary passion evident in this work is as true in today’s collections as it was nearly two centuries ago. Like the patriarchs before him, Alfredo Aletto has devoted his life to the elusive art of crafting fine jewelry, immersing himself in all aspects of the process, including design, lapidary work and stone setting.
This is where the story continues; in addition to crafting timeless, world-famous jewels, Alfredo Aletto remains deeply committed to his heritage by taking on three apprentices—his sons, Alberto, Luigi and Mario. Alberto, the eldest, was eager to follow in his father’s footsteps and has worked in the family business for 11 years, now serving as a mentor to his younger brothers. After all, they are also his fellow artists and business partners. Together, Alfredo and his three sons work to balance the increasing demands of business and daily life, while offering each other the kind of inspiration, love and support that is only found with family. Sempre famiglia.
Five generations later, from Naples to Caracas to New York, Boca Raton, Florida is now home to Aletto Brothers. Their small shop is the birthplace of some of the world’s finest gold and gemstone treasures, which include modern interpretations of classic design. Even as times change, however, the Alettos stay grounded in their family history and their gift for immaculate art.
