IPPOLITA was founded in 1999 by Italian artist and designer, Ippolita Rostagno, to address a void in fine jewelry. At the time, jewelry was primarily traditional and worn only on special occasions.
Since then, IPPOLITA has pioneered the concept of cool fine jewelry designed to be worn every day and for all occasions.
Established in 1946 In 1946, Henry and Anna Spitz realized the culmination of years of sacrifice and determination with the opening of the first Spitz Jewelers in Oakland. 1986 brought the expansion of the store to Downtown Walnut Creek and, once again, the word "family" became synonymous not only with who we are, but our relationship with our customers and community.
