18 kt yellow gold, coral, onyx



Goldsmith and designer of great experience, stands out for creativity and versatility. Her style, between classic and modern, praises and shows the artist sensibility for Catalan goldsmith’s school.  For her, jewellery is life and art: the timeless beauty and elegance of her creations are the result of her creative perception of life.



According to the legend, the coral was born from the blood of the beheaded Medusa, that coloured and petrified the seaweeds upon which Perseus had placed her head, turning them into coral. However, the science has another explanation: the coral is the calcareous secretion produced by little octopus communities, with support and protection function. These secretions, blending together, result in colonies.
In jewellery, the most appreciated corals, both for their value and beauty, are those from the Mediterranean Sea and the Pacific Ocean.
The coral coming from the Pacific Ocean can be divided into three subcategories: Corallium Elatius, Secundum and Japonicum.
Elatius coral stands out for the size of its branches. It occurs in different shades of colour: from Momo in salmon and peach colour, up to the rarest Angel skin, in light pink. The coral in angel skin, due to the rarity and uniformity of its colour, is the finest and most valued among the coral varieties.


According to the legend, onyx has been created when Cupid cut the nails of sleepy Venus and kept them on the floor. Since they were part of a divine creature, her nails were divine too and, for this reason, they became gems; indeed, the Greek onyx means “nail”. It is believed that this black stone cancelled negative thoughts and sharpened the intelligence.
Today, since it is a hard and precious stone, the onyx is used to create jewels.

18 Kt GOLD

Pure gold, as present in nature, is a malleable material. So, in order to be used in jewellery, it must be alloyed with other metals.  As a consequence, gold can have different colorations: yellow gold requires additional alloys like brass, zinc and silver; in white gold, on the other hand, are used alloys of brass (in reduced amount compared to yellow gold) and palladium.
