Who we are

AGC, Associazione Gioiello Contemporaneo, is a non-profit organization that was created to develop and promote the art of contemporary jewellery meant as:

  1. Artistic research
  2. Renewal of the concept of ornament
  3. Experimenting with new materials and technologies
  4. Protection, study and updating of historical heritage made up of know-how and abilities

AGC was founded in Trieste in June 2004 by a group of professionals to create new opportunities for the development and qualification of contemporary jewellery, aiming to promote a constructive and synergistic dialogue with the artistic and productive scenes on an international level.
