History

With a tradition reaching back more than 100 years, a quality range of Haute Horlogerie brands and a first class name in the field of diamonds, Bedetti is now the benchmark for qualified customers, nationally and internationally, in the heart of the Eternal City.

Located in the central Piazza San Silvestro, near Parliament House and the Trevi Fountain, Bedetti is part of the Historical Shops of Excellence in Rome, an association of names that, over time, have been able to represent the best spirit of Roman entrepreneurship with genuine passion and professionalism.

Today the head of the company is Massimo Bedetti, one of the leading international experts in the field of gemology, supported by his sons Marcello and Stefano; their task is meeting the challenges of modernity, while preserving the values of a great tradition, which began over a century ago with Antonio Bedetti, the former director of the Santa Cecilia Orchestra, he contributed to designing the water clock on the Pincio, created in 1867 by the Dominican monk Giambattista Embriaco. In the field of watchmaking the name Bedetti is closely linked to that of Rolex, thanks to a long and constructive cooperation.

Inside the store in Piazza San Silvestro collectors and fans can rely on a qualified laboratory and comprehensive technical assistance, including overhauls, repairs, waterproofing and so on. For over forty years Bedetti has been synonymous with quality and reliability in the field of diamonds and other precious stones, carefully selected and then transformed into exclusive jewelry right in their own workshop, thanks to the creativity of the designers and the skill of the artisans.

Bedetti has always been a meeting point between history and culture.

Bedetti regularly organizes events aimed at finding insights in issues related to the world of watchmaking and jewelry, because of his belief that knowledge is the best way to choose and appreciate a precious object.

Creations

Bedetti has been creating exclusive jewelry since the '60s.

Our jewelry is exclusive because the stars of our creations have always been gemstones that are carefully selected at the extraction sites and trade centers by the Bedetti family.

In this sense, every piece of jewelry is unique, as are the gems that make it up, because none can be the same as another. The jewelry design is centered around the gemstones, looking for the best way to express the stones’ full potential of precious.

For this reason, we invite you to view our collections because no photo can do justice to these precious creations directly or capture all the nuances of these beautiful, timeless objects. Bright colors and elegant design, but modern style. The greatest attention to detail, confident of the great power that the real made-in-Italy has in the world.
