Your father was a coral engraver. When did he decide to change business? My father was an artist, a student of a ­famous 1900s Neapolitan painter, and he expressed his creativity by engraving ­coral. I was the one who started to sell coral, cameos, pearls directly to Italian stores. And in the 1980s, pearl demand ­increased to the point where we decided to set aside other business. Passion did the rest – neither I nor my son have ever made a mail order purchase. Before we buy something we absolutely have to touch it. What can Baselworld visitors expect to see? We have been investing heavily in restocking. Indeed, in Basel we’ll have 2,500 Akoya pearl strands, 400 South Sea and Tahiti necklaces, and some 350,000 carats of loose pearls.
