Founded in New York City in the 1920s, Fusaro Jewelry Company earned its legendary reputation by designing and crafting platinum jewelry for some of the most prestigious jewelers in America. In the late 1950s, Rita’s husband took the helm – and the company reached new heights. Working by his side, Rita’s natural talent for creating beautifully handcrafted, one-of-a-kind custom pieces flourished. For decades she received hands-on training, studying side-by-side with some of the master jewelers of the century. Fusaro Jewelry became a pioneer in the manufacturing of platinum jewelry, while creating distinct pieces for the discerning customer seeking jewelry that represented their personality, individuality and lifestyle. In 1983, after the passing of her beloved husband, Rita continued his steadfast vision of excellence – and does so to this day. Her collections of estate-inspired pieces, handcrafted platinum jewelry and custom jewelry - using only the finest gems and metals - are defined by their signature simplicity, elegance and grace that defies time.
