HELLO.
MY NAME IS ROBERTO

I AM A VINTAGE JEWELRY CONNOISSEUR.

What does that mean? Well, let me provide you with some information about me. I am a specialist in vintage and estate jewelry, with a deep knowledge of the Art Deco period. People ask me all the time
“How do you know you made the right purchase?”
“You actually never know, you just follow your instincts.”

My motto is honesty, always putting you, the client, first. I have spent more than 20 years successfully finding past treasures and precious pieces all around the world.

If you are interested in expanding your collection, contact me today!

PHILOSOPHY

I focus on honesty. My approach has two strong defining factors that make my pieces truly one-of-a-kind.
As a connoisseur of vintage jewelry, my goal is to provide you with the best service and connect you with your dream jewelry.
Together, we search for your perfect piece.

COLLECTIONS

I sell all styles of fine jewelry: rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and brooches.
My vast network and assemblage also extend to vintage watches.
All pieces are unique, the perfect addition to any collection.

TIME PERIODS

Let’s explore history together, from the Victorian era to the turn of the century; there is a piece for everyone. On our journey through time, we will find the perfect jewelry for you that will remain timeless throughout the ages. Provenance means a piece has a history and a story to tell, and after wearing the jewel you choose, you will be a part of the tale, and it will be for a lifetime.

RESILIENT WOMEN OF NYC

In the wake of the 2020 World’s Pandemic, Roberto Capra has identified a few NYC women who come from different backgrounds and represent different industries and traditions, to pay homage to their work and resilience during the difficult time we are living. This project is a way to thank and honor them for their work and continuous support to their communities. A small gesture to pay them back for their contribution and to give them that sparkle they deserve.

I decided to create this project after witnessing what is happening in the world and, in particular, in New York City, where I live and work. People have come together in an incredible way during this unprecedented time. What has struck me the most is the way women have shown, once again, their undeniable resilience and sense of community.
This is for me a simple way to honor their proven courage and generosity, through what I know best: jewelry. Every piece is unique, well-defined in its details, and with a strong personality, like these women:
BEAUTIFUL, DETERMINED, and FIERCE. These are the Resilient Women of New York City.
