About Confindustria FEDERORAFI

Confindustria FEDERORAFI is Italy’s national federation of jewellery manufacturers, representing more than 500 Italian companies and artisans in the gold jewellery, silverware and jewellery sectors.

FEDERORAFI’s member companies are primarily concentrated in the manufacturing districts of Arezzo, Vicenza, Macerata, Milan, Valenza and Naples. Together, these companies are responsible for transforming more than 70% of the gold, silver, platinum and palladium processed in Italy into gold and silver jewellery, which is then exported all over the world.

In fact, approximately 85% of the gold jewellery produced in Italy is manufactured for export to numerous markets around the world. FEDERORAFI is a member of Confindustria (Italy’s national association of manufacturing companies), EFJ (European Federation of Jewellery) and RJC (Responsible Jewellery Council) and is one of the founding members of Confindustria Moda (a new federation which brings together Italian companies and associations in the textile, fashion and accessory industries, including footwear, fur, jewelry, leather goods and eyewear).

FEDERORAFI is the foremost trade association for Italian jewellery—ranging from precious metals to gem-set jewellery and silverware—tasked with safeguarding the rights and interests of Italian jewellery makers, as well as serving as a liaison with respect to traderelated issues of a general, national and international nature.
