BACKGROUND Celebrities such as Christina Aguilera are often spotted wearing Dionea Orcini on the red carpet. The Italian-born designer immersed herself in a number of artistic pursuits— including fashion, fine art, interior architecture, and stage and costume design—before launching her jewellery brand in 2013. She learned the art of jewellery-making in Miami from Mark Thur, a master jeweller from Germany, and went on to study gemmology at GIA in New York before taking a course in Vedic gemmology in India.
DESIGN SIGNATURE Inspired by historical and royal treasures, sacred legends and “the spirit world,” Orcini’s works feature mystical symbols, including geometric patterns found in 6,000-year-old Egyptian temples, and orbs and crosses seen on crowns and sceptres during the medieval era.
FAVOURITE MATERIALS Orcini works with gold and a wide range of precious gemstones such as rubies, emeralds, tourmaline and mother-of-pearl.
