This ring represents our particular contribution to the ongoing story that is granulation. Incorporating platinum granules within the traditional 22kt gold is a technique we developed. The granulation style here is organic and painterly. Ten different sizes of granules were used to create this piece as well as fine wire work.

Bio
In the Zaffiro studio, Jack and Elizabeth Gualtieri carry forward the legacy of ancient Etruscan goldsmiths: the art of granulation. Tiny spheres of gold create lush textures on the surface of each hand crafted 22kt gold jewel made by the award-winning husband and wife team.
