The creative heart of the Angela Caputi brand is located in the historic centre of Florence, a stone's throw from Ponte Vecchio, in an ancient seventeenth-century building better known as the "Palazzetto Medici".
Established in 1975 (the same year Hunt Leather was founded) Angela Caputi applied her love affair with golden-era cinema, art & fashion to design jewellery that spoke to women that understand the beautiful strength of femininity.
 
 
Working with Italian-made synthetic resins to achieve the vibrant colours and stunning but soft geometric shapes have become her signature. The optical effect of the resins resembles velvets, brocades and chenille, those iridescent, luminous and elegant fabrics that catch the eye.
