Junk-Chic Ruby Cuff Links


Junk-Chic Ruby Cuff Links

Code: 122LQJWL1
Price: $2,700.00

The junk-chic design series came together one night when designer Luis Quintero began welding together metal scraps left over from his design process. The outcome, unique jewelry items that emphasize the value of recycling and reuse in jewelry-making. Each item in this series is literally like no other since each employs a unique variety of metal scrap pieces available at the time of its creation. This set of cuff links is handcrafted using recycled 18K white gold. Each features a 1/2 carat conflict-free ruby as its center stone.

Artists Inspiration:

Luis Fernando Quintero has worked in the jewelry industry for over 30 years. He is a native of Medellín, Colombia with talent and expertise in nearly all facets of jewelry making: designing, casting, repurposing, repairing, welding, filigree, gem restoration and appraisal and as a metalsmith. Luis Fernando creates jewelry that melds traditional elegance with the eclectic future. He typically works with precious and semi-precious metals and gemstones, but didn’t encounter a material he couldn’t weld, meld or twist into a fabulous accessory. Fernando jewelry pieces are distinguished by their painstakingly intricate wire-patterns, crafted using a technique known in jewelry-making as filigree. Fernando designs feature unique gemstone combinations and bring together old-world, high-quality craftsmanship, with modern colors, angles and shapes. All of Luis Fernando’s designs are original and handcrafted and made using recycled metals and conflict-free gemstones.
