Hugo’s jewelry knowledge, history and sense of beauty began at home in the French Riveria.
Raised in a family of three generations of jewelers, his grand-father passed along a love and passion for Art Deco as well as the belief that retro styles will always have a place with modern and contemporary pieces. Hugo perfected his skill under the critical eye of his father who studied under the principals of the famous Italian jewelry school “Scuola Benvenuto Cellini”.
Hugo graduated from the “Chamber Syndicale des Bijoutiers” in 1998 with a degree in gemology and moved to New York City to fine tune his passion.
Now more than a decade later, Hugo has worked with the industry’s leading experts, dealers and consultants--and with his partner founded Odeon Collection. Hugo’s esthetic and pursuit of perfection will meet even the most discerning jewelry needs.
