Memento mori jewelery

Written by Carlotta on . Posted in art, jewellery

Attilio Codognato is the current owner and fourth-generation heir of Casa Codognato, a world renowned jewelry boutique located near Piazza San Marco in Venice. Casa Codognato was founded in 1866 by Attilio’s great-grandfather, Simeone Codognato, and the family tradition of exquisite jewelry continues, also today, with Attilio’s work. Always evocative, his aesthetics reminds at “memento mori”. The shop features brooches, antique cameos, serpentine rings previously worn by such well-known members of the world of style as Coco Chanel, Diana Vreeland, Elton John, Elizabeth Taylor, Nicole Kidman.

People traverse the world to reach Casa Codognato, Attilio says, because “the Codognato style is a common reflection on death, and thus on life. […] a message that celebrates the image of life.”
