The friendship between Pietro Capuano and Salvatore Aprea formed the basis of their professional partnership, which for a decade has kept the charm of those magical years unchanged. The Chantecler jewelry company was founded in 1947 and opened its first boutique in Capri the same year. Thanks to the brand’s loyal and world-renowned clients, the fame of the two jewelers has spread beyond the island.
In 1994, Chantecler chose Cortina, the jewel of the Dolomites, to open its second boutique. This was followed by boutique openings around the world: in Milan in 2002, in Tokyo in 2007, in Astana (Kazakhstan) in 2012 and in Hong Kong in 2013.
Chantecler is one of the most dynamic companies today, led by the heirs of Salvatore Aprea: Maria Elena, Costanza and Gabriele with his wife Teresa. They received their precious heritage and brought their temperament, intelligence and taste to the family business.
