Oreste and Laura Dalben have been handcrafting jewelry from their Italian atelier since 1995. Oreste is a master goldsmith and artist; and, Laura is an architect. Together, they design, carve wax models and choose the unique gemstones. Oreste does all the assembly, mechanisms, stone setting and hand engraving as well as sometimes even cutting the gemstones. They use only natural gemstones and are attracted to stones with inclusions or that appear a little foggy which give the jewels character and life. Their meticulously handmade creations are inspired by their love for ancient art, architecture and nature. The remarkable attention to every detail, make every Dalben creation a work of art.
