Carlo Weingrill was born in Verona, Italy, in 1856. At the age of eleven, he began his apprenticeship in a goldsmith’s shop. Upon completing his training at the age of 22, he made the decision to open his own factory in 1879 in Verona.

Four generations of Italian gold artisans have built a House that exemplifies fine craftsmanship, exquisite detail, and timeless design.

Carlo Weingrill is credited with being the original manufacturer of some of the most recognizable gold jewelry designs…gold cuff bracelets for Tiffany & Co., the Trinity bangle bracelet for Cartier, and, perhaps most notably, Bulgari’s tuboga-style necklaces, bracelets, and rings. The literal translation of “tuboga” is “gas pipe,” a name that describes the way the chain is formed – from a pair of interlocking gold bands tightly wrapped together. The method used to create a tuboga results in a flexible and hollow tubular piece that does not require soldering. This innovative approach was born during World War II when the scarcity of jewelry materials forced goldsmiths to reinvent their techniques for crafting fine gold chains.
