Faraone Mennella Jewelry

28 Jul

Roberto Faraone Mennella grew up in Italy on his family estate, surrounded by beauty and fine art, which soon he learned to appreciate from his grandmother Stella, who encouraged and inspired Roberto to pursue a career in design. After attending the Univesita' Federico Secondo in Napoli, Roberto moved to NYC to pursue his true passion at Parsons School of Design, where he earned a degree in Design Marketing in 1999. In 2000, he worked for LVMH's Christian Dior accessories before starting his jewelry venture.

Roberto's partner, Amedeo Scognamiglio, is not new to the jewelry business. His family has been creating handmade cameos since 1857, in Torre del Greco – at the foot of Mount Vesuvius. By the age of sixteen, he had mastered the art of hand-carving cameos, becoming the lead designer for his family's namesake company, M+M Scognamiglio.

After graduating from the University of Napoli in 1995, Amedeo Scognamiglio moved to NYC where he launched his first signature Cameo Collection. Today, he is a recognized authority in handmade Cameos and a passionate carver, who likes to spend his free time at the bench creating new pieces, exclusively available at his chic NYC boutique AMEDEO.

In Spring 2001, Amedeo and Roberto – longtime friends – decided to merge their experiences and education to design a Jewelry Collection that would best reflect their background, generation, and artistic vision. It took very little time to realize, during a coffee break in a Starbuck's Coffee, in NYC's 8th Avenue, that the Collection they both had in mind was already born.

Today, FARAONE MENNELLA by R.F.M.A.S. is one of the most celebrated fine jewelry collections, extolled by the fashion press and distributed in the most glamorous boutiques and specialty stores around the world. Roberto and Amedeo have created iconic pieces for movies like The Devil Wears Prada, Perfect Stranger, and Sex and the City, and TV Shows such as Will & Grace and Lipstick Jungle. And they collaborated with American fashion icon Carolina Herrera on an exclusive collection of couture jewels only sold in Carolina Herrera boutiques in New York, Los Angeles, and Dallas.

Fans and devotees of the Italian designers' creations include some of the most elegant and powerful women in the world, such as Oprah Winfrey, Paula Zahn, Carolina Herrera, Nina Griscom, Olivia Chantecaille, Raquel Welch, and Pamela Fiori. But their gratitude goes also to all the beautiful and chic ladies who collect their pieces season after season, and have made FARAONE MENNELLA an international success.
