A story of passion, art and sea

This is my story. It’s a story full of love, wise experience, precious places and people. They are precious like the jewels that I finely crafted with care and mastery. This is a story of passion, art and sea. This is Marco Gerbella Orafi.

The sea and the water are my natural elements; they infuse me with freedom and a sense of beauty. My other element is gold. Water and gold.

Goldsmith has always been a part of me, first like an apprentice in a workshop in Ravenna, then like a model maker in the De Lazzari company in Casale Monferrato, and finally like a goldsmith in the atelier of master Giuseppe Marotto, an artist of the Beautiful and the Elegant. I refined my creativity, my technique, my craft with him.

At 27 years old, I was ready to open my workshop and to buy my first sailboat. Water and gold.

I opened the jewelry store in 2007, in downtown Ravenna, where my jewels, unique pieces of fine jewelry, found attentive and refined customers. 

I am always on the move, I have so many new ideas and projects that, in 2010, I created the Piccole Gioie line, a different jewelry collection, that is young and innovative, fresh and original and it’s an interpreter of a new way of understanding jewelry in line with the air of change that also involves the world of jewelry. Bracelets, rings, necklaces, earrings in strictly 18K gold wire heart shaped. 

The simplicity of the form reveals the deep knowledge of the craft like a perfect combination of an innate imagination and a practice of many years.

My love for the sea accompanies myself, being on a surfboard or on a boat or immersed in seeing fish, seabed and coral reefs. Travelling also enriches my creativity and expands my views because I am always looking for inspiration for my jewelry.

My story is the story of my family, of my partner and of my three children. They are the reason and the engine of my life. My staff is my crew, it’s another family. Together we create ideas and implement projects, we discuss about work and how to interpret and meet the needs of our clientele. We live through the successes and face the difficulties. And then there are my brothers, my first collaborators, confidants and allies: with Dario, I share responsibility for the workshop and Gian Piero, who is a graphic designer, was the creator of the company’s logo and image. 

My story is water and gold, my nature and my craft. One is essential to the existence of the other and vice versa. Ravenna unites them; it is the water of the sea and the gold of the mosaics.

Craftsmanship and Unique Pieces

Italy has a prestigious and high-level goldsmithing tradition. The art of the goldsmith has always been synonymous with working by hand, with bench tools and above all the remarkable skills and knowledge of goldsmiths. Today we use sophisticated technologies, and some of the processes are carried out with the aid of computers and machinery.

Marco Gerbella Orafi has worked for years on the creation of precious jewels, unique luxury pieces, rings with diamonds and precious stones, set to form wonderful shapes and forms that radiate light and majesty. The skills learned over years in the workshop and through study are respected and elevated to the highest level.
