From raw material to finished product

"Benvenuto Cellini, Florentine citizen (starting with the oldest and most honoured) when he worked as a goldsmith in its youth, had no equal: he adorned jewels and marvellous bezels with shapes so well made and, sometimes, so bizarre and capricious that you can never imagine".

This is the way the work of Benvenuto Cellini, fine goldsmith, is described by the famous sculptor and his contemporary Giorgio Vasari. You can clearly see the appreciation for the skill and talent of the Tuscan goldsmith, who was able to create works that will always be considered as eternal, universal, able to cross historical periods while keeping unchanged their charm. Itís, therefore, once again continuity. In the same way Orexport manufactures its jewels in the path of an unaltered authenticity, in the constant pursuit of originality, in the inspiration that comes from the family history, which is based on ancient and artisan traditions. Even today we work with the same tools that were used by ancient goldsmiths and we make the same working methods our own even though they are now supported by modern and cutting-edge technologies.

Our experience and expertise has led us to be one of the most successful production company both in national and international market, but it is our ancient craftsmanship that makes our creations unique and exclusive, jewels that defy time.

Love for Craftsmanship

We believe that itís very important to never forget what we have been taught: the value and nobility of the work and the gratification that come from manually create an object. For this reason Orexport based its production on handcraft, an element that characterizes the whole manufacturing process.

It starts form the mold, realized according to the drawings of our designer. The melted metal is poured in it and, then, the mold is cooled and broken to obtain our jewels. All these crucial stages of the production cycle are directly performed in our company, following the principles of an art which is hundreds of years old. We then proceed with a series of other processing that help to create true works of art. The setting, for example, is used to mount precious gem stones: in this case we use simple but highly precise tools able to perform this particularly delicate step. The jewel finally reaches the last stages of the production process: the cleaning, which allows to eliminate casting defects and imperfections, and the final polishing that enhances the brilliance of our jewellery.
