Luxury Italian Elegance: An Introduction to FOPE

By Roseanna Preston-Jones, Senior Sales Consultant

For decades, Hamilton & Inches has partnered with a select number of artisans whose jewellery and timepieces compliment that of their own and meet the strict criteria of excellence required of the Hamilton & Inches stamp. FOPE has long been this partner and H&I is proud of their friendship, sharing a mutual respect and synergy for the core values of the business. 

The family-owned company of FOPE started as a traditional workshop in 1929 and has now evolved into one of the most recognisable and desired luxury jewellery brands in the world. Standing as one of Italy’s premier jewellery ateliers, FOPE are known for their timeless, distinctive design and lasting quality. 

Based in Vicenza, this well-established company combines state of the art technology with beauty and traditional craftsmanship. The jewellery collections are made in fine 18ct gold, designed in a unique style; the distinctive gentle weave of the chain not only increases the strength and durability of the piece but results in dazzling beauty.

Effortless in style and designed for everyday wear, FOPE jewellery looks stunning when layered with other pieces from the collection; mix yellow, white and rose gold pieces for a personal tailored look. Incidentally the rose gold alloy of FOPE is a perfect colour match to that of Rolex‘ Everose rose gold. The elegant stacked ‘Eka‘ bracelets mirror beautifully with a bi-metal Datejust.

Perfect for ladies who struggle with clasps, the ‘flex-it’ collections are clasp free and have been ingeniously designed with patented gold spring technology to allow for flexible movement in the gold links. This not only adds to the practicality but also the comfort of the jewellery. It is no wonder our clients never want to take them off.

Robust, with a two-year guarantee, our clients can buy with confidence in the knowledge that the beauty of each piece is matched with a superb aftercare service. This is an important requirement of all Hamilton & Inches’ partner artists.

Of all the FOPE pieces, my favourite has to be the Eka Tiny Bracelet in 18ct Yellow Gold. I love how elegantly beautiful it is and can be paired with others for a statement look.

All FOPE articles purchased from Hamilton & Inches are lovingly and securely encased in elegant FOPE jewellery packaging, complete with certificate of authenticity. Select items from the current collection are available to purchase online.
