Robert J. Palazzolo began his career in the international emerald trade in 1994.
As an importer of Colombian emerald, he worked directly with high-end jewelers offering exquisite gemstones as much as $20,000 per carat.
His appreciation for the intrinsic beauty
of precious stones propelled his business
to later include ruby, sapphire, and pearls.
In 2005, Robert Palazzolo began to design jewelry
and created RJP Designs. Currently, he is
incorporating various gemstones from exotic places
like Siberia, Brazil, Thailand and Afghanistan.
Jewelry from RJP Designs is distinguished
by its rare stones and exceptional style.
His designs focus on the natural radiant beauty
of the material he selects for each objet d’ art.
The hand-crafted jewelry is made from precious and semi-precious gemstones from
around the world. Utilizing different textures of stone like rough or uncut, as well as faceted gems, each creation is a unique work of art, and no two pieces of jewelry are identical.
Jewelry designs are available in 14k gold, sterling silver and 14/20 gold filled.
