Once upon a time…
The source of inspiration of Caterina Murino Jewellery is her love for Sardinia.
She always cultivated a passion for jewellery.
Her mother’s “Fede Sarda” (typical Sardinian alliance), surely marked her childhood.
Her thirst of curiosity carried Caterina between a film shoot and a theater tour, to study gemology at the “ING”, National Institute of Gemology in Paris.
Profoundly attached to her Island and her roots, whose craft is deemed to be one of the best in the world, in 2015 Caterina discovered that 20 years ago in Sardinia were working 400 filigree artisans, today they last around 20 in all Island. So to help the last filigree artisans to don’t disappear for ever, Caterina decided to devote all her pieces to the Sardinia filigree and to the Sardinia legends.
The Sardinian filigrane has millenium origins. Transmitted from the Etruscans to the Arabs, who invaded the Island, the Sardinian artisans also transmitted, from generation to generation the art of filigrane working gold and silver.
The word filigrane comes from latin: filo (filum) and grane heard like granule (granum).
You will find in the Caterina Murino Jewellery line the new generation of a millennium tradition.
