The Collection will be comprised of pieces about Fabergé Past (Heritage pieces) and Present (Timepieces inspired by heritage elements/pieces). In addition, Manfredi will be debuting Fabergé watches made with the internationally renowned Gemfields emeralds and rubies.
The “Once Upon A Time Collection” by Valerie Messika will also be available. The Once Upon Time High Jewelry collection pays tribute to the fairytales told troughout time and were designed to bring enchantment back into one’s everyday life. Each item is designed with careful consideration of its structure.
Valérie Messika transcends the magic of the eternal diamond in her light, airy constructions, reflecting an era in which women still long to be princesses, but princesses of the modern age.

Created by brothers, Bart and Tim, Grönefeld uses the most time-honoured techniques to create truly unique timepieces. They embrace technical challenges to prove that their watches to be complex yet reliable.
As other businesses have come and gone, Manfredi Jewels continues to evolve and flourish.
In 2015, Manfredi Jewels further expanded and committed to the Greenwich community when owner Roberto Chiappelloni purchased the building where Manfredi Jewels has called home for three decades. Chiappelloni has been strongly devoted to his customers, which led him to purchasing the building to permanently show his commitment.
“Bringing the finest and most unique brands to Greenwich has been my passion for the last 30 years,” says Roberto Chiappelloni, Owner Manfredi Jewels. “Growing up in Italy, I developed a fascination and love for art and craftsmanship. I know how fortunate I am to have been able to turn my love of fine timepieces and jewelry into a thriving business. Greenwich is such a wonderful town where I not only started my business 30 years ago but I also call it my home. I have been able to contribute to so many families’ memories by helping them choose that special watch or piece of jewelry for the perfect anniversary present, graduation gift, engagement ring or that ‘extra’ stocking stuffer. It has been my pleasure to have been part of such a wonderful community.”
For the 30th anniversary, Manfredi invites past, current and future clients to help them toast to another 30 years. A cocktail event will be held at their Greenwich Avenue location on October 27th at 6:00pm.
