Where Jewelry Meets Art
MARIO UBOLDI Jewellery Art is an articulation, part of a larger language in contemporary design with cultural inflection that is applicable to different trades and to different scales. The designer’s approach focuses on analyzing phenomena in art, culture, nature and architecture and distills them to their core parameters to get at their underlying principles. By combining diverse attributes, such as historic and contemporary characteristics, a new visual dialogue emerges which is rooted in its references.
MARIO UBOLDI Jewellery Art not only blurs the boundaries between art and jewelry but also between cutting-edge production methodology and sophisticated goldsmith tradition which has been passed on for generations. We embrace the idea of "digital handcrafting" and combine the latest digital technologies and fabrication techniques with the individuality of craftsmanship and handwork. We fuse the precision and flexibility of computing and digital crafting with the skill and tactility of the master artisan to create unexpected and desirable jewelry.
Every design derives from an inspiration after which the collection is named. This source is visually and conceptually distilled to its essence and (re)interpreted in a contemporary way. Sketches are digitally translated and 3d printed in order to achieve an unparalleled precision. In the prototyping stage, artisan craftsmanship refines and reworks every detail to ensure the technical tradition infuses the jewelry to the core. Most of our jewelry is created in casting technology. Thus, the final production stages are executed manually by our skilled craftsmen to ensure best quality and a human touch.
MARIO UBOLDI Jewellery Art are carefully created in precious materials which come from certified sources to ensure our designs are not only beautiful but also ethical and sustainable. We usually craft in 18k yellow gold, 18k white gold and 18k rose gold. Upon request, we create our designs in higher caratage of gold and platinum. Diamonds and other precious stones often complete our designs. We only use natural, fine diamonds and colored stones. While our Uboldi Charms collection focusses on gold and diamond creations, our MARIO UBOLDI Jewellery Art pieces embrace the full richness of gemstones and pearls. The following gemstones often appear in our designs: white diamond, yellow diamond, black diamond, brown diamond, sapphire, ruby, emerald and aquamarine, respectively Akoya pearls, South Sea pearls and Tahiti pearls.Enjoy our world where jewelry meets art!
