The Aletto family tradition of hand-crafted jewels has spanned five consecutive generations, beginning with a special commission to Bartolomeo Aletto to commemorate the inauguration of the Eiffel Tower at the Exposition Universelle in 1889. From the second generation, Bartolomeo's son, Raffaele worked for many leading Italian jewellers, and in 1949, his son,Alberto, emigrated from the family base in Naples to Caracas, Venezuela, where he established a factory with over 100 employees. In 1962, Alberto moved the family to New York, and today his sons, Alfredo, Franco, Roberto and Alberto Jr. continue the family tradition from their workshop in Boca Raton, Florida, training Alfredo's sons, Alberto, Luigi and Mario, in the art of invisible- setting for which they are renowned.
