One of the top blessings of being in the spotlight is to be introduced to the best treasures worldwide. When I was invited to attend to one of the best gift suites during the 85th Annual Academy Awards, I was magically introduced to Ronaldo’s beautiful designs. His jewelry innovations are known to be The World’s Finest Handcrafted Designer Jewelry. Delicately 100% hand made in America.
I was instantly connected to his beautiful designs. As a visual artist, I could tell how much love and personal thoughts were put on this wonderful series. I was lucky enough to get one of his latest braided bracelets from hisPrincess Series, I felt like a princess! His exquisite taste has brought his designs to celebrities like Angelina Jolie and fashion icons.
Ronaldo’s work is admired by his costumers through it’s prestige, quality and customization. He has spent more than 100,000 hours perfecting his skills and developing his artistic creations. His attention to details is incomparable, makes his one of a kind designs to be one of the premier, handmade jewelry artists in the U.S..
He uses only the top of the line raw materials, including 14k Gold wire, Platinum, Argentium Silver, and 14k Gold artist wire. Some of his top designs are complimented with superior quality of Gemstones, Semi-Precious Stones, Cameos, and Pearls.
Every piece starts out as simple strands of wire and loose stones. One of his master artisans then sculpts the wire into a beautiful piece of jewelry. Each piece is handmade upon ordering, so everything is made especially for you.
Ronaldo not only has mastered this skill, but also has taken this difficult technique a giant step further. His weaving and braiding skills are unmatched by any other artist. He has perfected working with 14k Gold and Platinum, quite a different league than 14k rolled Gold or Silver. These materials are very hard, that it is like trying to bend and twist a coat hanger with your fingers. Imagine trying to wrap a coat hanger around a pretzel without scratching or denting the hanger or breaking the pretzel. Most professional bench jewelers say it's impossible. "My father still helps with the business, he oversees the sketching process, shares formulas on bending metal, and occasionally attends his favorite shows but his hands prohibit him from actually building the jewelry." -Ronaldo
His "Princess Bracelet" which was the winner of the "Who's Who in America" Award for Jewelry Design. It's made out of eight strands of 20 gauge, square Platinum with five strands of 18 gauge half round, woven on top in the basket weave pattern with approximately 4 feet of half round woven in and out and around to secure it all together. This is one of the most difficult pieces in the world to create because it is nearly impossible to bend the metal without denting or scratching up the weaves. Yet, Ronaldo has mastered this process.
