Cini, a master jeweler from Florence, Italy, formed a small company called ini Jewelry, in Boston, Massachusetts. Cini hand-crafted both fine and costume jewelry using master jeweler techniques. Initially worked only with silver and gold, and his. Early pieces were marked by his initials in a rectangular box.
As time went on, Cini began to incorporate faceted, colored rhinestones and other stones into his designs. His jewelry was high quality and began to attract a clientele in the Hollywood film and theater business. N 1957, Cini moved his family to Laguna Beach, California. There he continued his business and took on an apprentice designer, Felipe Mendoza, who eventually became his partner.
