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.
During her numerous trips around the world for her films, Caterina always looked in stores, “souks” and markets, for the national stone and the best goldsmith of that country.
Caterina has always been fascinated by man wanting to possess jewelry and precious stones, even pushing them to go to war to own a legendary diamond! “What is inside this stone, coming from the heart of the earth, that shines like a thousand fires, in front of our eyes? What is this magic that stones hold inside of them?”.
This 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.
