The first stage in developing a piece of fine Tirisi Jewelry starts with putting pen to paper. This important process requires many sketches and even a full-color 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 colors, the multicultural population rushing by, and the hip street fashion are the source and inspiration that is used to convert today's city look into tomorrow's cool new Jewelry. As Natascha always says, "the world is my catwalk".
To transition, Natascha's creative idea's to a beautiful piece of fine Jewelry demands a very clear and precise roadmap. This process involves multiple conversations and much research and deliberation with the L'officina. Using the first important sketch, the master model maker takes over the process, creating an exact and perfectly hand-crafted model in clay. With a perfect eye for detail and a very steady hand the model maker uses his creativity to transform the sketch to a full scale 3D exact proportioned model. The tiniest and the most intricate details are molded into the clay and nothing is left to chance. A very demanding and precision handwork. 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 important 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 is then turned into precious 18 karat pink, yellow or white gold. This so you may enjoy having your Tirisi Jewelry in your favorite colour of gold. Tirisi Jewelry, something to be proud of and something to wear for eternity.
The goldsmiths then meticulously assemble the jewelry pieces and use high precision laser machines and hand solders to construct and mount all the minute elements to create a final piece. This structure will then house the various hand cut gemstones, giving sparkle and life to a piece of work of perfect proportions. Outstanding expertise all forged together in the L'officina at the House of Tirisi Jewelry. We at Tirisi turn tiny components into beautifully crafted jewels using constantly the best men and women and giving them the best possible workspace in a healthy factory environment we proudly call L'officina. These wonderful artisans and professional goldsmiths and setters make the impossible, absolutely possible.
The delicate operation of polishing is performed at several stages during the manufacturing of the fine Jewelry. The skillful 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 even the setting to give luster and life so that your Tirisi Jewelry will shine and shimmer to reveal its full splendor of the queen of stones.
Setting fine diamonds the queen of precious stones is a true art. We at Tirisi go the full length to do more than just set our diamonds and colored gemstones. Our setters have been fully trained to use 90X powered microscopes so that they can see more and yet actually use less gold to fix delicately yet also perfectly our diamonds and gems. We believe that fine setting is as important as polishing perfectly the Jewelry. Our setters have been trained in making use of high powered microscopes so that the fix is not only perfectly strong but that as little gold is used to block the light and brilliance from the diamond and gemstones we use. The tighter the fit the better the look which means more beauty and dazzle to our fine Tirisi Jewelry. After all our precious Jewelry may simply not catch or break your clothes. We in the L'officina believe we should go that extra mile on quality perfection and comfortable and trustable fine Jewelry that should always be wonderful to wear. Extraordinary is for Tirisi Jewelry the norm.
Unique to our Tirisi Jewelry manufacturing process is a 4 times quality control that takes place during the entire JOURNEY OF THE JEWEL. Controlling perfectly 4 times during the manufacturing cycle is for the absolute benefit of our discerning Tirisi Jewelry customers. Starting from the very beginning of the production process and repeating 4 times these important controls 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 the 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. After all Jewelry should be forever. 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 your Tirisi Jewelry will last a life time.
