Francesca Amfitheatrof, A Renowned Jewellery Designer
Francesca grew up in Italy, America, Russia, and Japan. After graduating from St. Martins and the RCA, she launched her eponymous line of jewelry in 1994. She was soon commissioned by Chanel, Fendi, and Marni to create jewelry and accessories. She worked exclusively for Asprey and Garrard for both jewelry and homeware and was the creative director of Wedgewood from 2003-2008. She also created a series of hand-raised vases sold to Giorgio Armani and Karl Lagerfeld.
Tiffany & Co appointed Francesca as their first-ever female Design Director in 2014. Her launch collection, the ground-breaking Tiffany T, remains as one of their highest-selling collections. She became the Artistic Director of Jewelry and Watches at Louis Vuitton in 2018 and has since designed multiple haute joaillerie collections.
Francesca launched her own brand, Pauer, in 2022. The brand is focused on one jewelry concept product at a time, starting with the revival of the permanent tag bracelet and the Codebreaker, a new patent-pending design. The collection will also include signet rings, padlock pendants, and chain necklaces.
Francesca has also collaborated with Kidsuper for his Spring/Summer 2023 menswear show in Paris, creating a limited edition collection of unisex necklaces, earrings, and brooches.
Francesca is the USA board president for Sarabande the Lee McQueen Foundation.
