Officina Bigiotteria Italiana started life as a small family business. Giancarlo Boncompagni founded Officina Bigiotteria Italiana in 1958. With 10 employees, he personally monitored all stages of manufacturing, from the rough sketch to distribution. After presenting its first collections, Officina Bigiotteria Italiana began working on commission basis, only for exclusive customers seeking brass accessories made to job orders.
With the adoption of a new material – die-cast zamak, a zinc-based alloy that widened its manufacturing possibilities and cut lead-times – the Officina Bigiotteria Italiana offering became vast in terms of product materials, flexibility, quality and volumes. Competitive prices and faster deliveries made OFFICINA BIGIOTTERIA ITALIANA the industry leader. In a few years, the small family business entered the new markets of America and Asia.
Today, Officina Bigiotteria Italiana is a reference brand in the production of high quality exclusive accessories. Its production processes have become fully in-house since the handover to the new generation. Technology adopted at the start of the new millennium allows sophisticated, flexible processing of valuable materials such as bronze, gold and silver.
