With its origins in the city of Porto in the late eighteenth century, Casa Leitão & Irmão became the byword for top quality jewellery on being appointed Goldsmiths to the Imperial House of Brazil by Pedro II, Emperor of Brazil, in 1873. They were also appointed as Jewellers to the Portuguese Crown by Luís I, King of Portugal, in 1887.
The title of Jewellers to the Crown led Casa Leitão to move from Porto to Lisbon in order to be near the Royal Court, where it set up a “modern” goldsmithery. It is still in operation to this day.
With shops in Lisbon and Cascais – Chiado, Bairro Alto and Casino Estoril Gardens – Casa Leitão represents modernity, character and quality in jewellery, using traditional production processes combined with the most up-to-date design and manufacturing techniques.
Casa Leitão is also noted for the manufacture of tailor-made, personalized pieces, including engagement rings, jewellery, cutlery, tableware and other articles, as well as their maintenance and restoration.
These services, carried out by the workshop’s team of professionals, whose knowledge is handed down from generation to generation each with their own character, are the distinguishing characteristic of Casa Leitão.
