Elizabeth and Jack Gualtieri
Exquisite Hancrafted Jewelry Featuring Granulation in a Palette of Colours: 22kt Yellow, White, Rose Gold & Platinum.
Jack and Elizabeth Gualtieri of Zaffiro create exquisite hand-crafted jewelry featuring the ancient technique of granulation. These national award-winning designers believe that beautiful jewelry should be artful, precise and everlasting. Influenced by both ancient and modern styles, from Etruscan era jewels to urban architecture, the husband-and-wife design team is not content to merely reinterpret the past; they are dedicated to bringing a modern spirit to an age-old technique.
In their Portland, Oregon studio, the Gualtieris have developed new 22k white and rose gold alloys specifically for the granulation process, they have perfected a technique for granulating platinum onto 22k gold, and have created a method for granulating platinum onto platinum. Fascinated by process, inspired by harmonies in nature, Jack and Elizabeth dedicate themselves to creating modern heirlooms.
