The most important aspect of a wedding isn’t the planning, the gown or the guests; it’s the love shared between the two people who are celebrating with close family and friends. So when picking an engagement ring or a wedding band, you want it to be forever. Zappacosta Jewels is an expert in this field. With more than 13 years’ experience, owner and designer, Manuela Zappacosta, has exceptional taste and can customise the perfect ring for you.
“We opened in 2003 after living and working in Los Angeles and London,” Manuela says. “The passion in everything that we do and the quality of work we provide is what has made us grow and have a loyal following from around the world.”
The talented team’s skills in design and gemmology are reflected in the craftsmanship of their pieces. With a huge collection of superior gems, diamonds and a colourful selection of Australian South Sea and freshwater pearls, it’s no surprise the boutique is renowned across the globe. “All the designing and production occurs on location in our Sydney boutique,” Manuela explains. “But our clients are located around the world, so we can either ship the pieces or they get collected from the store.”
Some of the brand’s notable skills include engraving special messages on precious pieces of jewellery. “We can handcraft anything you request,” Manuela says. “From hand-engraved French scroll work and fancy leaf designs to wonderfully delicate saw piercing and gem setting, there is nothing our masters cannot do.” For the tech savvy, the company offers CAD (computer aided design). The skillset of the production team is huge, and the high quality and beauty is reflected in the pieces.
