JOURNEY OF A JEWEL

It all begins at a pavement cafe

The first stage in developing a piece of fine Tirisi Jewelry starts with putting pen to paper. This critical process requires many sketches and even a full-colour drawing before Natascha Rotstein approves the design for the next stage in creating the intricate Journey of a Jewel. Natascha's design tip: be street smart, sit at a pavement cafe, and watch the world pass by. Everything catches the eye: the abundance of colours, the multicultural population rushing by, and the hip street fashion are the source and inspiration used to convert today's city look into tomorrow's fabulous new Jewelry. As Natascha always says, "The World is my Catwalk".

Fabrication

Transitioning Natascha's creative ideas into a beautiful piece of fine Jewelry demands a clear and precise roadmap. This process involves multiple conversations and much research and deliberation with the L'officina in Italy. Using the first important sketch, the master model maker takes over the approach, creating an exact and excellently hand-crafted model in clay. With a perfect eye for detail and a steady hand, the model maker uses his creativity to transform the sketch into a full-scale 3D, precisely proportioned model. The tiniest and most intricate details are moulded into the clay. This all provides a concrete version of the final creation and acts as a bridge between Natasha's vision and all the artisans (casting, soldering, setting, stone cutters, polishing and quality control) who will later partake in the magical art of making for you a beautiful piece of fine Tirisi Jewelry.

From the critical handmade 3D model, the journey can continue to be used to create a wax model, and from the wax, the true artistry starts to happen as the piece transitions into precious 18-karat pink, yellow or white gold. You may enjoy having your Tirisi Jewelry in your favourite colour of gold. Tirisi Jewelry is something to be proud of and wear for eternity.

LASER AND SOLDER ASSEMBLY

The goldsmiths meticulously assemble the jewelry pieces and use high-precision laser machines and hand solders to construct and mount all the elements to create the final piece. This structure will then house the various hand-cut gemstones, giving sparkle and life to a work of perfect proportions. Tirisi turns tiny components into beautifully crafted jewels, constantly using the best men and women and giving them the best possible workspace in a healthy factory environment we proudly call L'officina. These extraordinary artisans, professional goldsmiths, and setters make the impossible absolutely possible.

POLISHING

Polishing is performed in several stages during the manufacturing of the fine Jewelry. The skilful hands of the polisher will spend untold hours on our Tirisi Jewelry, giving the desired mirror effect to the entire piece. This process is carried out several times before, during and after the setting to provide luster and life so that your Tirisi Jewelry will shine and shimmer to reveal its full splendour of the queen of stones.

SETTING AND GEMSTONE CUTTING

Setting fine diamonds, the queen of precious stones, is a true art. Tirisi goes the entire length to do more than just set our diamonds and coloured gemstones. Our setters are fully trained to use 90X powered microscopes to see more and yet use less gold to fix our diamonds and gems delicately yet perfectly. The delicate setting is as important as polishing the jewelry perfectly. Our setters are trained in high-powered microscopes so that the fix is robust and that little gold is used to block the light and brilliance from the diamonds and gemstones we use. The tighter the fit, the better the look, which means more beauty and sparkle. After all, our precious jewelry may not catch or break your clothes. We at L'officina should go that extra mile for quality perfection and comfortable and trustable fine jewelry that is always wonderful to wear. Extraordinary is for Tirisi Jewelry the norm.

QUALITY CONTROL

A four-times quality control process during the Journey of a Jewel is unique to Tirisi's Jewelry manufacturing process. Starting from the very beginning of the production process and repeating these critical controls four times during all the steps as the Jewelry is moved up the chain means better and higher quality perfection so that your enjoyment of wearing our fine Tirisi Jewelry gives you the ultimate confidence in our handcrafted pieces. Perfect quality is imperative to our brand. In L'officina, we demand our customers receive the very best, so we do the very best so that your Tirisi Jewelry has a longer and more sustainable lifespan. But please do pay attention as we in the L'officina always do and show and give your Jewelry the respect and ultimate care it deserves. Doing this will cause your Tirisi Jewelry to last a lifetime.

EXCELLENCE FOR EVERYDAY USE

Our high values support the world of fine Tirisi Jewelry. Excellence in perfect craftsmanship is, for us, a way of life. Natascha Rotstein has worked hard to enter the exclusive world of luxury fine jewelry successfully. But demanding the best of herself and everyone else in her team is not good enough for Natascha.
