Gold is the main element used in every collection, whereas colorful semi-precious stones complement and fine-tune the story and the message expressed in every piece. Tovi believes that each jewel is created for a particular woman and it awaits her as she seeks it. This meeting point is central to the artist’s creativity and inspiration. Endless links between women and experiences create expanding circles which continue to generate more and more loops which eventually become new stunning jewelry collections. Tovi Farber’s designs, based on this concept, provide each woman with a sense of original and individual style when wearing her specific piece of art, her jewel.

James Assael, a diamond dealer based in Milan, Italy, founded the business of Assael-Ventura in Europe in the early 20th Century. Before the onset of World War II, James moved his family to the United States via Cuba. His son, Salvador served with distinction in the U.S. Army in Europe, and post-war, began to work with his father and learn the trade.

In the Zaffiro jewelry design studio— located a short stroll from their 1913 Craftsman home in the Hawthorne neighborhood of Portland, OR— Jack and Elizabeth Gualtieri carry forward the artistic legacy of ancient Etruscans. The technique, called granulation, is a decorative process that consists of applying miniature spheres of gold(or, in its modern adaptation, platinum) to a similar surface and then heating the entire piece to a temperature high enough to form a permanent bond between the surface and the spheres. If the spheres are over-fired they’ll melt onto the surface; if under-fired, they won't adhere properly.
