At the end of 19th century, a member of the Ghiso family emigrated from Italy to Buenos Aires, Argentina to establish a jewelry salon. The salon quickly became the premier destination for jewelry shopping in the capital city. Following this early success, Ghiso’s two sons opened locations in Paris and New York City.
The firm employed designers and artisans who also worked at prominent Parisian jewelry houses of the time. Ghiso crafted fashionable styles which were largely exported and sold in their Buenos Aires and New York stores. Although the Paris and New York stores closed in the late 1930s and 1940s, the flagship store in Buenos Aires remained open until the 1960s.
