Mimi di Niscemi jewellery
Mimi di Niscemi jewellery company (Princess Mimi di Niscemi) was named after its founder – the magnificent jeweler Madame Mimi di Niscemi. It should be noted in fairness that she has come to this brand not at once. Mimi di Niscemi, born in Palermo Italy, went to distant America to study at the Philadelphia School of Industrial Arts. At the same time she studied and worked in the evenings at a jewelry house Schiaparelli. Her talent was appreciated, and she went on to a career in the arts association, and in 1950s she won a grant in the school of Applied Arts in Paris. In 1950, she is working in partnership with Arnold Skassi creating jewelry for the jewelry house Scassi. In 1959, she creates jewelry with Robert DeMario, then moved to New York City to create jewelry for Brania. For the first time it was there that her name appears on the jewelry, marked Brania / Mimi Di N.
And after going a long way in honing her talent in the best fashion houses, having accumulated vast experience, in 1960, Madame Mimi di Niscemi opened her own company in New York. Her jewellery pieces have different markings: “Mimi Di N”, “Mimi DiN”, “Mimi Di N Design”, “Mimi DiN Design”, the first years, even without the labeling the year of manufacture. Big fame enjoyed her large symmetrical buckles Mimi Di N for the belt with animalistic plot. Mark Mimi Di Niscemi was founded in 1960 and up to 1995, produced mainly belt buckles. The company exists to the present time, but produces exclusively belts and belt buckles.
Jewellery collectors appreciate quite expensive jewelry by the company Mimi Di N, not only for the quality and beauty, but also for the fact that every product on the market is extremely rare.
