Nardi: A family of superb craftsmen, the Nardi’s have been designing jewelry for three generations in Venice. They are most recognized for their signature “Moretti” or “Blackamoor” brooches, which were first created in 1920 by Giulio Nardi. The image was inspired by Shakespeare’s character, Othello, a Moor and commander of the Venetian fleet. Each one-of-a-kind piece has a face made of carved ebony. The “Blackamoor” is a symbol of regard, love and purity. The firm continues to be family owned and operated under the leadership of Alberto Nardi, grandson of the founder.
