Antonio Bernardo was born in 1947 in Rio de Janeiro. As a small child, Antonio had a fascination with jewelry. His father was a goldsmith specializing in jewelry and watchmaking. In 1968, Antonio studied in Switzerland and interned at watchmaking companies Ebauches and Leschot. He developed his skills at home for almost a decade and then, in 1981, opened his first shop. Motivated and determined, Antonio eventually created a special diamond cut called Wish Star. In 2000, he launched his flagship store which soon led to many international locations. Antonio’s designs are innovative, playful, and reflect an extraordinary attention to detail.
