Synonym of creativity and personality on the international jewellery scene, Pomellato was founded in 1967 thanks to the intuition of its founder, Pino Rabolini. Heir to a family of goldsmiths, Rabolini was the first to introduce the philosophy of prêt-à-porter into the world of jewellery, attributing a strong distinctive identity to the brand, thanks to which Pomellato soon became renowned on the Italian market and in the rest of the world, becoming the fifth jewellery company in Europe and one of the biggest players in the entire sector at international level.
The success story of this company runs parallel with the personality and unmistakable style of its creations, unique in their combination of stones, shapes, colours and impeccable artisan manufacture. Every new Pomellato collection is the expression of surprising creativity that is always visionary and often becomes a benchmark for the entire category.
With 600 employees, Pomellato has always entrusted a role of fundamental importance to the artisan manufacture of its jewels, using highly qualified artisans, today represented by over 100 goldsmiths at the headquarters in Milan.
In July 2013, Pomellato joined the Kering Group, world leader in apparel and accessories, that develops an ensemble of powerful Luxury and Sport & Lifestyle brands: Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Brioni, Christopher Kane, McQ, Stella McCartney, Tomas Maier, Sergio Rossi, Boucheron, Dodo, Girard-Perregaux, JeanRichard, Pomellato, Qeelin, Puma, Volcom, Cobra, Electric and Tretorn. By ‘empowering imagination’ in the fullest sense, Kering encourages its brands to reach their potential, in the most sustainable manner.
Present in more than 120 countries, the Group generated revenues of €9.7 billion in 2013 and had 31,000 employees. The Kering (previously PPR) share is listed on Euronext Paris (FR 0000121485, KER.PA, KER.FP).
