Founded in 2015 by Cynthia Vilchez Castiglioni, Aliita is a distinguished jewelry brand known for its sophisticated designs that blends refined style with playful touches.

Cynthia Vilchez Castiglioni, Founder & Creative Director of Aliita commented: “I’m very excited to be focusing on expanding the Japanese market which has been our first and most loyal market. Thanks to Bluebell’s strengths and understanding of the market, I’m confident we can consolidate our presence and grow our business.”

Founded in 2015 by Cynthia Vilchez Castiglioni, the jewelry brand is distinguished for its sophisticated creations, which mix a discreet and refined style enriched by playful and lively touches.
As the name indicates, ALIITA means “important object” in Wayuu, language of the native people of Guajiros who live in the same region of Venezuela where Vilchez was born.
Fully aware of the impact of its productions and operational practices on the environment, since the beginning, Aliita has embraced a responsible approach reflecting its profound sensibility and awareness of environmental and social issues.
Reflecting a slower pace and process, Aliita aims to deliver products with a purpose, which exude a sense of well made and long lasting. Along with choosing to produce in Italy using high-end, certified materials, through its creations, Aliita also aims to empower women, pushing them to follow their dreams and to encourage them to find their own place in fields with low female participation. Aliita strongly believes in the power of messaging to achieve concrete goals.
