Italian tradition
and innovation

Gival is a historic Italian jewelry company, stands out in national and international markets, transmitting for generations the noblest values of the tradition of goldsmith, family entrepreneurship and passion for fine quality.

From origins to export abroad

The Gival brand has distinguished itself on the international market as an ambassador of Made in Italy and synonymous with excellence and the best Italian jewelry tradition. Creativity, design and entrepreneurship are the key elements that guide the company, along with a deep passion for an art that is handed down from father to son. Gival has always stood out for the recognized quality of its products and raw materials used and for the exclusive design of its collections.

The jewels of jade begin their fascinating history around the nineteenth century, when the founder, Isidore, opened a modest workshop in Messina, taking the first steps in the art of goldsmithing. The satisfaction was not long to come, rewarding soon the intense efforts, sacrifices and long days of work. But the history of this ancient tradition, as often happens in the course of human affairs, was conditioned by the forces of nature and the events of war: in 1908, after a terrible earthquake that destroyed the city of Messina, its founder moved to Catania.

Satisfaction and multiple awards, alternating to the overcoming of the two world wars, the family has handed down over the generations the passion and love for the goldsmith craftsmanship that, in recent decades with the new generation, received the appreciation of a wide variety of customers, not only in Italy but also worldwide.

The crosses of the Jubilee

In 2000, on the occasion of the Great Jubilee of the Church of Rome, Gival obtained the recognition and the high privilege of the Holy See to produce the collection: "the Crosses of the Jubilee 2000". To this end, a small presentation book has been prepared depicting all the crosses of Gival with the preface and comments of the Holy Father Pope John Paul II, all certified by the papal hologram. For this occasion, Gival donated 5% of all proceeds to charity for children’s associations.
