  • Striking in its essential lines, this ring revives the women's wedding ring of the Sardinian goldsmith tradition, widespread and adopted throughout the island, which was characterised by the engraving of the groom's initials, reinterpreted with contemporary taste with the unusual use of white gol

  • Taken from the local goldsmith tradition, rich in symbols and values, the earrings with coral pendants were worn by unmarried women, and widely used throughout the territory.

  • Filigree 750 (18 K) yellow gold pendant with bezel and a freshwater pearl pendant. Handmade using traditional techniques, it reinterprets the original button in the form of a pendant.

  • 750 (18 K) yellow gold pendant with a Bulma Rugosa turban snail shell mounted on a filigree set. Available in three different versions, one of the artefacts provides an accurate copy of the traditional Fonni model, while the other two are original contemporary interpretations.

  • Filigree 18K yellow gold earrings. These earrings are typical of the Dorgali area and they are hand-made with traditional filigree techniques. They include filigree geometrical elements mounted on a metal foil set in the form of a lily, that is, a stylized fountain.

The artisan

After obtaining a MA in Nuoro, Salvatore Goddi learnt the art of filigree crafting in Bosa, one of the main hubs of ancient goldsmith's tradition, at one of the most appreciated local filigree artesans. In 1977, he opened a jeweller's workshop in Nuoro; since 1980, his wife, Annarita Schintu, has worked at his side. They had been schoolfellows at the Scuola d’Arte. The two goldsmiths give birth to an interesting professional path, through research and unusual experiments, resulting in new traditional and innovative objects, characterized by a profound knowledge and a great passion for Sardinian culture. With their precious collections, they take part in the most important local fairs.

The collection

The workshop crafts all the main types of traditional Sardinian jewels, in addition to more contemporary collections: necklaces, rings, brooches, pendants, buttons. They are all characterized by beauty and technical skills, expression of a profound passion for their mother land and culture.

The technique

The experiments and the research of these artisans on traditional goldsmith's art, from a technical and cultural profile, is translated into a profound technical expertise and a valuable production. All traditional goldsmith techniques are applied, being the sophisticated expression of a charming and surprising culture.
