raw materials

Each and every one of our jewels is crafted in 18k gold with artisanal techniques of goldsmithery and setting. We love subtle, simple lines, green gold, which stands out when hammered, and red gold, which tells of ages past. The imperfections of coarse, detailed surfaces, that give each item a unique feel, and, finally, we love old cut diamonds for their refined, timeless beauty.

18K ETHICAL GOLD ONLY

"My Golden Age jewels are crafted in 18k gold sourced from RJC (Responsible Jewellery Council) certified foundries"

Making conscious ethical and environmental choices is our top priority. The Responsible Jewellery Council is a not-for-profit organization that aims to promote responsibe, ethical, environmental standards and practices while respecting human rights throughout the whole supply chain of the goldsmith industry, from mining to retail.

THE COLORS OF GOLD

When I create the alloys to combine with pure gold (24k) to make it workable (18k), I have the chance to “play” with the amounts of various elements, thus creating unique, peculiar hues.
This to me is not only a way to stand out from the aesthetics of mass-produced jewels; it’s also an opportunity to pay homage to my city and its master goldsmiths, starting with Pietro Sforza, who experimented with shades and techniques that are now famous all over the world.
GREEN GOLD is a pale yellow that is crafted using a larger proportion of silver over copper in the alloy that is combined with pure gold. The pinkish coloring of RED GOLD, vice-versa, is obtained by increasing the percentage of copper over silver.
Green gold best accentuates worked surfaces; red gold has a strong allure and the charm of the past.
Both colors glorify the uniqueness of handcrafted creations and carry the beauty of an ancient know-how.
That’s what makes them so special to me.

Grey

Green gold makes the best use of worked surfaces, red gold has a strong appeal with the style of the past. Both exalt the uniqueness of artisanal creations and bring with them the beauty of an ancient knowledge. That’s why they’re so special to me.

recycled gold

I can also craft a new item out of a piece of jewelry that you no longer wear. The gold you bring to the workshop will be molten and purified in order to make it workable again, so that your family heirlooms will get a new lease on life and you will have the jewel of your dreams, with minimal impact on the environment.

yellow gold

In my workshop, I mainly use green gold that has a much subtler hue compared to traditional yellow gold. If you’d like a more classical version of a jewel, feel free to request this customization and I will gladly craft it for you.

THE FINISHES

OUR STONES

In my creations, I only use natural precious and semiprecious stones. Their colors must be authentic, not necessarily perfect, but authentic. Some stones appeal to me for their intense, absolute hues. Others, for the subtle quality of their shades.

I love their imperfections, the irregular sides on rose cuts, the inclusions typical of tourmalines, the fascinating shades of sapphires… Each distinctive feature tells a story and highlights its uniqueness.

our diamonds

From the purest, shiniest cuts to the most irregular and imperfect ones; from crystal-clear to total black, via champagne hues: the world of diamonds, while often associated with stereotypes and monotony, actually conceals a wide range of beautiful solutions that fit all kinds of different styles.

In our workshop, we love to bring out the best of them all!

diamonds

Combining the purity of diamonds with the material quality of handcrafting techniques is the essence of the My Golden Age style itself. Simple, refined, one of a kind.

black diamonds

Antique cut black diamonds are a must-have in our collection, and it couldn’t be any other way. They are unconventional, intense, with that typical retro charm that is intrinsic to our idea of beauty.

brown diamonds

From the intense hues of chocolate to the delicate shades of champagne, brown diamonds combine elegance and personality, and that’s why we’ve always loved them.

salt and pepper diamonds

Salt & pepper diamonds get their charm from the high concentration of inclusions and impurities that radiate a unique and captivating personality.

only conflict-free diamonds

Our white diamonds come from legitimate sources that aren’t involved in war funding, in accordance with UN resolutions on diamonds and with the Kimberley Process (KPCS) rules.

Each cut diamond is assessed based on the following characteristics:

Weight (carat),

Purity (clarity),

Color (color)

and quality of the cut (cut)

The more the stone meets these criteria, the more its price will increase (sometimes exponentially).

If you are looking to purchase a diamond as an investment, my advice is to pay close attention to the four C’s.

MY ADVICE

As soon as you type in the word DIAMOND online, or you step into a jewelry shop with the intention of purchasing an engagement ring, all kinds of technical information about the features that determine the market value of diamonds are fired at you; while it’s all important and useful information, it is often given to you before you have decided which way to go, and this often causes distress and endless doubts. I’d like to reassure you about one thing: it is indeed possible to create gorgeous solitaires without necessarily achieving excellence. Quite often, the idea that it is not possible to reach “perfection” is strongly discouraging when looking to buy a solitaire. It’s important to know from the start which possibilities exist; the right match is out there, and we can find it together.

our colored gemstones

When it comes to stones, especially colored ones, I follow my heart instead of my head. It doesn’t matter how in-demand or well-known they are; if I can picture them in their setting, and if that image captivates me, they come right into the workshop.

Often I only have one or two of each stone, which is why many of my creations are one of a kind and can be customized by choosing the most similar stone among the selection of colors, shapes, and shades that are available.
Within the wide range of existing colors, certain hues are must-haves in our workshop because they are so close to our world: all shades of green and pink in its subtler pastel hues.

INDICOLITE

A blue tourmaline made special by the beauty of its shades, ranging from a deep blue to a bright green.

GREEN SAPPHIRE

A variety of corundum, this name groups several colors and intensities that go from aquamarine to forest green.

MORGANITE

A variety of beryl, where the traces of manganese give the stone charming shades of pink, magnolia, and peach.

GRANATO ROYAL PURPLE

Particular Rodolite with an incredible chromatic variety that goes from the most intense violet to brilliant shades cyclamen.

INDICOLITE

A blue tourmaline made special by the beauty of its shades, ranging from a deep blue to a bright green.

GREEN SAPPHIRE

A variety of corundum, this name groups several colors and intensities that go from aquamarine to forest green.

MORGANITE

A variety of beryl, where the traces of manganese give the stone charming shades of pink, magnolia, and peach.

FUN FACTS FROM THE WORKSHOP

tourmaline

I’ve always had a soft spot for tourmalines. And when I tried to explain this to myself, I realized that, quite ironically, the details I find compelling in these stones go exactly against the ground rules for those who work in the industry… They are often “imperfect” and have countless shades of color, which makes them non-conforming and very distant from the idea of perfection and beauty we have been used to. The imperfection is actually the most distinctive mark of the natural and true quality of the stone. It’s like a small tattoo that tells its story, an image that appears different to us depending on our point of view. Its uniqueness.

double briolette cut

When I first started making halo rings, combining semiprecious stones and diamonds, my main purpose was to appose the elegance of a classic ring, in its timeless beauty, to new shades of color. For the first two models, I instinctively chose the hues that felt closest to our world: aquamarine and antique rose. A nod to nature, and a nod to the past. This intuition proved to be successful from several points of view. In next to no time, our halo rings with prasiolite and rose quartz became precious little stars, so much so that I decided to create other versions of them, based on other color palettes or on lighter, more modern fits.

orange sapphire

Sapphires and rubies come from the same mineral, corundum. Ruby is the most noble variety of corundum and stands out for its deep red color, which is identified by a specific color spectrum. This is the rule, but then there are exceptions… like the orange sapphire in the picture, that is so close to a bright red that only the tiniest difference in color prevents it from being ennobled to a ruby. It’s beautiful, but it’s not enough. Sounds like a joke! Needless to say, I was so captivated by it that I decided to mount it on a tall, prominent setting. A regal ring for a stone that is (to me) extremely noble.
