Handmade with passion since 1968
The rear of the piece is always embellished with the brand’s signature symbols: flowers, moons, suns, stars, hearts ... which can often be more intricate than creating the front of the jewel.
The iconic Pasquale Bruni method of stone-setting combines the expertise of master craftsmen and the perfect harmony of gold and selected gems to make the piece look like a sheer fabric of shimmering stones. The backside of pave is created following the traditional handcrafting techniques of high-end jewellery. The tiny holes, that permit to light up the gems, in many Pasquale Bruni creations have the shape of little hearts.
For each Pasquale Bruni collection, a special cut is devised to make the piece irresistible and unique.
Pasquale Bruni uses exquisitely produced natural stones. Large, colored stones are one of the house’s main assets, picked in a painstaking selection process from a range of premium natural materials. The diamond selection process is another mainstay of our company and guarantee of the quality of our stones. All coloured gems are selected one by one, and purchased according to the highest and strictest quality standards. Only the most beautiful gems become Pasquale Bruni gems.
Chosen for their colours, nuances, and intensity – all qualities that best express Pasquale Bruni’s sensitivity – these gems stand out for their high-quality transparency, brilliance and colour intensity.
Semiprecious gems are cut in Valenza, Italy, and in Jaipur, India. Precious gems, such as sapphires, rubies and emeralds, are generally cut in their country of origin, which explains the expression “native cut,” referring to the countries of Sri Lanka, Bangkok, Burma and Colombia.
Pasquale Bruni is among the founding members of the Ethical Committee for Coloured Gemstones.
The creations of Pasquale Bruni are made with precious metals. Gold in the colors of yellow, white or pink is made up of an alloy with 750 parts of fine gold, meaning 18 carats. Yellow gold is alloyed with silver and copper to achieve the intense and warm color features of Pasquale Bruni’s gold. The pink gold has a high percentage of copper giving this alloy a warm and sensual shade created exclusively for Pasquale Bruni. White gold is alloyed with palladium, introduced to replace nickel. Pasquale Bruni applies the strictest canons of European regulations for non-allergic metals and in this regard uses high percentages of palladium, an extremely rare and precious metal, to guarantee that all metals used are absolutely non-allergic.
The diamonds set on Pasquale Bruni jewellery reflect the following features: color F-G, purity VVS-VS. These standards are not specific of the Atelier collection which mounts exclusive stones.
Pasquale Bruni certifies each and every diamond according to the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS). This process forbids the use of diamonds from war zones, so no diamond is purchased in countries that support rebellions or wars that violate the United Nations resolutions.
