From vision to a masterpiece. What begins as an idea matures in the hands of skilled Italian craftsmen and embarks on a long creative journey. The centuries-old tradition of crafting high jewellery with designs sculpted in wax highlighting every magnificent detail.
What begins as a vision always finishes as a statement piece in the hands of highly skilled Italian master jewellers. The centuries-old tradition of crafting high jewellery starts with an idea that is transformed into a sketch. From there the design is sculpted and perfected using special wax. Skilled craftsmen and gem setters replicate perfect wax moulds into glimmering realities with a handpicked selection of refined metals such as high karat gold or titanium and precious gemstones. Searching for the inspiring stone can take from weeks and up to a few months before any of our piece begins their unique creative journey.
The art of lost-wax casting is an ancient method of fine jewellery fabrication which dates back over 6000 years, following the traditional method using soft wax materials, which allow us to reproduce the delicate designs to the finest details. Also called ”cire-perdue”, little has changed of the intricate technique, with our skilled artisans following the same precise procedure as their ancestors.
Once the wax sculpture is perfected to the smallest details, the wax is melted, and a metal mould is produced, replicating to the finest details of the delicate design. 18-karat gold is poured into the mould, and then the meticulous process of finishing, polishing and perfecting the gold is completed beforehand assembling the carefully chosen gemstones. The entire detailed process is a true labour of love and the dedication of accomplished artisans.
