Torrini Italian Jewelry

Fall 2008 Jewelry Collection
Far from being the jewelry of trends, the eclectic high fashion designs of Torrini Jewelry have survived for twenty-five generations. Their designs are well known for being unique, exceptional, handcrafted pieces of elegance and beauty. Among the highly guarded secrets: a hand polished finish with an undeniable sheen that is part of the Torrini legacy.

Grab some attention at your next cocktail party with this right hand stunner by Torrini. An exquisitely cut green amethyst is nestled into an oval setting of rose gold with hand-chiseled detailing. Made in Italy.

Today's Torrini Dynasty members and goldsmiths still utilize a finishing technique developed by Jacopus Torrino in the fourteenth century. This technique was inspired by the writings of Benevenuto Cellini – a goldsmith and sculptor of some renown – to create a dipping solution that enhances the natural colors of the metal. This process, referred to as Oro Nativo, has become the quintessential element in countless beautiful pieces that appear to have been salvaged from centuries past.

Located in Florence, Italy, on Via Ponte a Iozzi, Torrini jewelry has expanded to include affordable pieces that are less rustic and more fun, to entice new buyers to their market. From clever pieces that lend themselves to evening or daytime wear, to pieces exclusively designed for upscale clients, the jewelry created by Torrini craftsmen continues to find a niche in the world of jewelry.

Company History
The Torrini Dynasty has its roots back in the fourteenth century, when Jacopus Torrini of Scarperia, Italy began crafting fine suits of armor for the knights of the land. He registered his unique trademark in 1369 in Florence with the Guild of Iron Wrights, Armorers, and Nailmakers. For his mark, he cleverly combined a spur, symbolizing the armor, and a half clover, symbolizing the good luck he wished his business to have. Today, the half clover still characterizes the mark of the House of Torrini.

All of Italy was experiencing growth at this time of the golden age, and Jacopus Torrini's business flourished. Torrini decided to expand his craft into fine jewelry making, as well as the creation of precious objects for his clientele. He specialized in using gold.

Franco Torrini and his son Fabrizio now hold the reins of the family business, and guide the Torrini House of Jewels into the future. Rings, pendants, and chains that are reminiscent of medieval times, as well as modern pieces of finely crafted gold set with jewels of the finest quality, the collections have an esteemed place in the world of jewelry.

    I enjoy making the jewelries myself as well. I love gemstones like Turquoise, Agate, Coral…. Sometimes I add some gold colors and give it an Indian feel and sometimes I match with Pearl and have an elegant look. After work, I spread out all the gemstones on the desk and enjoy the moment mix and match beads of various kind. Sometimes it takes me days to finish one piece but nothing else would give the same satisfaction, making every pieces the way I like it.
