The Man Behind The Legacy
The Beginning of a Legacy
The Mazza family’s involvement with the jewelry industry dates back almost two centuries in a small town just south of Naples called Torre del Greco. Starting in the 1840’s the Mazza family worked with coral and conch shells for cameos, which they harvested and hand carved in Italy.

The Son Who Brought The Mazza Legacy To The United States
At the turn of the century Louis Mazza left Europe to import gems and Mazza carvings to the United States. In the years from 1950 to 1960 his four sons joined the business as it expanded. The third son, William, worked closely with the major designers, honing his own creative skills, and in 1970 produced his first collection for I. Magnum & Co. and Bergdorf Goodman under the Mazza name.

Continuing the family name
William and His Three Sons
Today William, Lex's grandfather is joined by his three sons Jeffrey, her father and her two Uncles Bill and Steven who continue to practice the fine jewelry techniques passed from generation to generation. They continue to create their unique collections using hand carved gemstones and other special gems in the family tradition. The Mazza Company, the formerly unknown supplier of gemstones for many famous jewelry houses has now emerged as a leading creator of 14kt and 18kt fine fashion jewelry.
The collection is represented in the finest independent stores throughout the nation. International distribution spans from Mexico to Canada and the Caribbean.
