Rodrigo and The Rose is an independent jewellery brand based in Italy.
Our costume jewellery collections are cast in bronze, brass, or silver: simple, ductile shapes, seamlessly merging with the texture of the body itself, occasionally combining with the precious glimmer of tiny, unexpected gemstones.
The materials of choice for our precious jewellery pieces are mostly vintage or custom-cut. Old gemstones and pearls, certified post-consumer diamonds and gems of colour: small treasures still retaining the mystique of an obsolete cut, of their natural colour and radiance.
We only use natural gemstones for our designs, most of them repurposed, all of them ethically sourced. All precious materials are sourced through established dealers, in accordance with all international commercial agreements. Gemological certificates by our local IGI (International Gemological Institute of Antwerp) licensed gemology lab are available upon request.
As much as possible, we prefer to work with recycled gold and silver, as available through italian state-licensed assay counters. All the alloys we use are manufactured in Italy, and are - by law - completely nickel-free, and certified so by the manufacturer.
Our studio offers bespoke services on occasion: working with our clients on a project is always a process we look forward to. We also consult for exclusive projects for customised, limited-edition collections of fine or costume jewellery.
We would be delighted to hear from you.
Every item is handcrafted in Italy, where standards of craftsmanship have always been outstanding. The entire design, sourcing and production process takes place here, between the R+TR studio in Tuscany, and the workshops of selected local master goldsmiths and artisans. A keen attention to detail ensures that at every stage of the process each item is carefully designed, crafted, and hand-finished, bestowing it with the heirloom quality that makes it a small portable treasure.
