ARCHEORING for Chiara

A jewel that looks like a dusted archaeological find. Alchemic transformation of an unworn pendant into a silver and diamond ring, a talisman for Chiara, brilliant restorer and archaeologist.

LOVE RING for Simon

A rose gold and a beautiful Indian brown diamond ring. A jewel conceived and created to make a great love tangible and sparkling.

BACO RING for Lisa

An apotropaic ring, the juicy fruit of the transformation of an ancient palladium ring of Lisa's grandmother. A ruby and a sapphire set in a Byzantine ring bitten by a otherworldly creature living in Berlin. Lisa calls it an amulet.

Moonlight

Moonlight is a rings series whose protagonists are colored sapphires dipped, rather than set, in white silver. The series was photographed by Federico Vespignani, a Venetian photographer, who collaborated with SURI to bring out the link between these jewels and the lagoon environment.

Fra

Fra is a pair of jewels conceived and made for Francesca. Silver is bleached through a process that SURI uses to bring out the most unknown tones of materials. An earring and a ring, the shiny opals have found their space to be set. Francesca entrusted her stones to me, leaving me free to create unique custom made jewels.

Luce

LUCE is an ongoing capsule collection of earrings. Every piece is unique: hand cutted brass, warm texture 18kt gold plating treatment. Freshwater pearls, tiny milky shells, baroque pearls, pinky rounded pearls. LUCE is an hymn to Venice and its feminine sensuality, its light and contraddictions. In each pair, each earring is different from the other, shining and easily adapting to each body.  Shop the collection here.

Ripā

RIPĀ is the shore, as a place of finds. But they are also the soft borders of a lake and, on the contrary, the steep and bumpy cliff of a glacier. A profound investigation through objects presented in a language of forms with a singular presence. A collection dedicated to the ring, composed of unique pieces, presented to the public for the first time.

Cannaregio

Cannaregio is a collection of 41 brooches, goldplated handcutted brass. The collection was shown for the first time during the Venice Fashion Week in 2019. The collection wants to bring the idea of something that reminds us of ancient found objects, small things that I used to collect since my childhood in Venice. Small treasures that helps me to keep the memory of my family. Every pin is unique, everyone should keep it close by the heart, as a magic little object.

Sub-Lime

Sub-Lime è una piccola serie di anelli in argento ispirata all’immaginario marino lagunare. Il metallo trattato in modo scultoreo rievoca le forme della vegetazione marina, dalle rotondità delle anemoni fino a raggiungere la sua estrema estensione nelle punte affilate di alghe e coralli.

Acquis Fundata

Aquis Fundata was born as a mini-collection of rings, each piece is unique. Using only 925 Silver and in some cases raw stones, the collection investigates what remains of the city of Venice. Seaweed, Lagoon creatures, bat- tered masegni, historic decadent buildings, old forgotten ladies, scrape plaster.

Amantes

Amantes is a pair of unique rings in 18k yellow gold. The rings were conceived and custom-made to celebrate the union of two lovers through gentle organic shapes. SURI has created the two jewels so that they find a balance by fitting one into the other, while maintaining their own independence and individual solidity.

Meri

Meri è una piccola serie di orecchini in argento oppure ottone dorato. Sono sottili lastre tagliate a mano, rifinite e lucidate una per una. Sono gioielli piccoli, leggeri e luccicanti.

Elda

Elda is a mazy ring in opaque white silver, custom-made for the woman whose name it takes. It is a double ring, which is worn on two fingers, with gentle shapes but with a structured volume, allowing a comfortable wear thanks to its lightness.

ANELLO ELDA

Ele

Ele is a custom made silver bangle. In conceiving this jewel I tried to make SURI’s typical organic elements coexisting with the weareability of a rigid bracelet.
