The history of Giovanni brand began in 1959 founded by Longcraft as a jewelry line, the main idea of which became floral motifs. Longcraft company, founded in 1878 in Boston by Thomas Long, still exists, but under a different name – Long’s Jewelry. Noteworthy, the first renewal of the trademark took place in 1980, and Giovanni ceased to exist in 2002.
