Faraone Mennella R.F.M.A.S

Roberto Faraone Mennella, grew up in Italy in his family estate, surrounded by beauty and fine arts, which soon he learned to appreciate from his grandmother Stella, who encouraged and inspired Roberto to pursue a career in Design.

After attending law school in Napoli, Roberto moved to NYC to pursue his passion applying to Parson School of design where he successfully graduated in Design Marketing, in 1999. In 2000 upon finishing his degree, he worked for LVMHs Christian Dior accessories before starting his jewelry venture.

Amedeo Scognamiglio is not new to the business: His family has been creating hand made Cameos since 1857, in Torre del Greco - by the footstep of Mount Vesuvius and the Island of Capri. By the age of sixteen he mastered the art of hand-carving cameos, becoming the lead designer for his familys namesake company. After graduating from Law School at the University of Napoli in 1995, Amedeo moved to NYC where he launched his first signature Cameo Collection. Today, he is a world wide recognized authority in handmade Cameos.

In Spring 2001, Amedeo and Roberto longtime friends - decided to merge their different experience and education each one have had, designing a Jewelry Collection which would best reflect their background, generation and vision.

It took very little time to realize, during a coffee break in a Starbucks in NYCs 8th Avenue, that the Collection they both had in mind was already born.
