Ethical, artisan rings concept

 

This is how a unique, precious and eternal ring is created

I make each piece of jewellery by hand, from a new custom design. Each one is individually crafted, to be absolutely unique.

I only use certified Canadian ethical diamonds, because I want my rings to symbolise an extraordinary love while also respecting the environment and local communities.

My wish is for each ring to be a reflection of the person wearing it, so I start by building a dialogue with my clients involving them in the creative process and making my lab a place of sharing and experimentation. To make a customised ring I need the person who commissioned it to tell me about the person who will be wearing it, so I can help translate their story into shape and texture.
This is how my handcrafted rings start taking shape!

THE RING CREATION PROCESS

Processo-di-creazione-anello-di-fidanzamento

  1. DRAFT

This step is the most fun. We jot down ideas, shapes, and concepts on a blank sheet of paper. You talk, I draw and doodle – this is the time to share. When I notice that you like one idea in particular, I start showing you variations and adding details, until together we find the right design.

  1. THE GOLDEN PLATE TAKES SHAPE

After calculating the thickness needed to make your ring, I melt the gold in the furnace, and then I laminate and file it by hand, and start creating the shape. Sometimes this step is quite laborious – I need to use pliers, hammers, small anvils, etc. . .until I am completely happy with the end result.

  1. WELDING

I shape my jewellery using a blowtorch. This tool has now largely become obsolete and replaced with electric welding machines or lasers, but I still prefer to use it because it gives me complete control over the flame – although it also requires strong lungs!

  1. SETTING THE STONE

Before finishing, the stone needs to be embedded in the ring. For this delicate process, every artisan goldsmith works with a trusted stone-setter who prepares the bezel and finally works the metal to secure the stone in place.

  1. YOUR RING IS READY!

The ring is complete and placed in a gift box. You will also receive a certificate with all the details relating to the diamond, its origin and unique code which is laser-etched onto the diamond itself.

The rest is up to you!
