The quality of the primary ingredients is what makes a product. Desco Design follows this rule and offers the purest materials that are chosen to make the high quality cufflinks. While searching for materials worldwide, we try to understand the potential of the stone; from the moment it appears as a little more than a dirty rock. Gem Fair at Tucson Arizona, Hong Kong markets and mines around the four continents are the corners of the world we explore; it is a harsh and fascinating reality that allows us to get hold of the best quality stones and the virtue of our cufflinks. Cutting through a raw stone is a meticulous affair. The material is dissected into slabs, which are manually drawn to follow the nature of the stone, its tones, transparencies, colours and veins. At the end of the final process, only a small part of the initial material has been preserved. The production continues with the creation of the silver pillar, connected through a hole and welded by a 4.5 mm sphere. The design of the pillar was conceived to meet two basic requirements: simplifying the lacing and making the twins fasten easily. Therefore liberating, through its minimal design, the natural energy of the stones and their infinite colors and shades. No chains and no bezels to imprison the stones, only the beauty of nature, with its rules and its exceptional imperfections.
