Ryo is an extremely passionate and skilled designer. Born and raised in Japan he harboured a passion for jewellery from a young age. He chose to pursue his path from both the designing and the manufacturing aspects by studying directly in the cradle of goldsmithing, Florence. The passion for designing jewellery has brought him to Milan IED, the “European Institute for Design” to perfect his 3D abilities, going on to become one of the 20 people selected by the Richemont Group, (Cartier, Van Cleef, Piaget, etc) for its prestigious Creative Academy. Later he moved to Paris, hand picked by the Maison to design for Van Cleef. His jewellery design work has later brought him to Rome for Gucci, designing for the high fashion market. He’s literally obsessed with drawing, never failing to carry in his bag a sketch book full of precious paper, using any break in the day to sketch for his own pleasure. He has a hidden passion for speed and in his sketchbook, among the drawings of jewels it is not unusual to find beautiful design of futuristic race cars!
