A love for jewellery that runs in the blood.
Discover our legacy beginnings in 1898 with Emmanuel Azzopardi, Raphael’s great-grandfather who was a pioneer in the jewellery business. He started handcrafting jewellery from a workshop in Valletta and was succeeded by his son Victor Azzopardi, Raphael’s grandfather, who continued the business from Valletta and Floriana. The business then passed on to Joseph Azzopardi, Raphael’s father, who taught Raphael the ropes for 17 years. It was after this time, in 2011, that Raphael moved on to have his own outlet in the centre of Ibrag, Malta.
