After completing his studies in Geology with a focus on Gemology, and having spent years working in two of the great jewelry Maisons, Cartier and Bulgari, Fabio Salini set off on a solo path 20 years ago, with the aim of expressing his artistic vision of jewelry.
His debut came with the presentation of his first collection, in 1999, at the renowned historic jeweler Petochi in Rome, official purveyor to the Italian royal family, and his work gained immediate appreciation from clients like Queen Rania of Jordan.
He opened an exclusive atelier in Rome, where his creativity is reflected in every detail, and where he welcomes clients with sophisticated tastes who are taken with his unique, original creations.
His talent is recognized by the most prestigious international jewelry and luxury magazine (FT, Vogue, The Economist, The New York Times, Robb Report, Wallpaper, Vanity fair) which feature his creations, and dedicate large space to his work and his vision. Also, one of the most important and renowned writer and author of the jewelry world, Vivienne Becker, writes about him: “Inspired by his passion for precious stones and his innate desire to create splendid works of art, Fabio Salini has spent more than two decades cultivating an inimitable style that makes his work immediately recognizable and renowned for its extraordinary esthetic and impeccable quality. With a unique vision and an extraordinary sense of design and materials, Fabio Salini has revolutionized the world of contemporary jewelry, creating a completely new visual language for the sector”.
His collaborations with prominent luxury brands, his creations for major jewelry projects on request, and his discovery of the contemporary art world through a prestigious collaboration with the Campana brothers have enhanced Fabio Salini’s experience and given him ever-increasing means of expression.
His relationships with top auction houses as well as with the best workshops and precious gem suppliers confirm Fabio Salini’s standing in the jewelry world, not only as a creative designer, but also as an expert in this complex sector, making him a valued consultant on investing in fine jewelry and precious objects, and on the management of important private collections.
Masterpiece, one of the few exclusive luxury fairs Fabio Salini participates in, offers one of the rare occasions to admire his creations, aside from private appointments in his Rome and London studios, and to meet the designer.
Masterpiece's exhibitors span all eras and disciplines and include many of the world's most distinguished art dealerships. Scrupulous vetting and thoughtful juxtaposition allow one to encounter beautiful works of art, have one's eyes opened to the unfamiliar, and buy with confidence.
