Gold is the main precious metal that is used in jewelry. Who creates jewelry with precious metals then takes the name of Goldsmith.
At the beginning of her career, Naomi handcrafted her creations using only yellow and white gold.
Over time she wanted to add red gold and platinum for the creation of her pieces, thus giving the possibility to its customers to choose between the colors yellow, white and red.
Continuing to experiment, she approached palladium, a precious metal that is part of the platinum family, still not often used in jewelry, appreciating its hardness and its silvery color.
Some jewelry on which she has experimented for long time, are composed of iron, a metal that is not used in jewelry.
Naomi has been able to exploit it for its oxidation by combining it with gold, palladium and diamonds, for the magnificent contrast that creates their combination, giving life to the iconic Ferro Prezioso collection (it means Precious Iron in italian).
For Naomi, the importance of creating ethical jewelry was immediately clear.
For this reason the atelier Dominò Orafa is certified with the Ecological gold trademark.
For our creations we do not use any precious metal coming directly from a mine.
The precious metal of our jewelry come from a source certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) in London - which guarantee the exclusive use of recycled precious metal.
The high standards of RJC take into account human rights, labor rights and environmental impact.
But what does "recycled" mean?
All the old jewelry, but also the scraps from the production of new jewelry, such as the filings, are sent to a foundry.
Gold, palladium, platinum and silver are refined and transformed into new sheet and threads, which are used to create the Dominò Orafa jewelry.
The precious metal of our jewelry is:
Class 1988, immediately after the compulsory schools she studied computer science.
Over the years, however, she realized that she would have to look for a job that could give her what computer science could not: Creativity and handcraft work.
Discovering the goldsmith's profession was a love at first sight and she immediately realized that this would be the work of her life.
So in 2009 she sought and found a job to start the apprenticeship as a goldsmith, she graduated in 2013 obtaining the Swiss federal certificate as a goldsmith with excellent marks.
After a short period as an employee, she felt the need to start creating her own jewelry, turning cold sheets of precious metal, through her hands, into jewelry that are all small works of art, individually made one by one with passion, precision and creativity.
