Why no two Lavanis are alike
As you may already know, we always use natural semi-precious stones in our designs. These stones, besides being an added value to the whole process of manual creation of the jewelry, give it a distinctive and unique touch.
Nature is beautiful and provides us with stones of all colors, sizes and shapes. Thanks to this and to the manual process of stone cutting that our artisans perform one by one, we achieve that each jewel has its tone, its sparkles and its distinctive characteristics that differentiate it from any other Lavani design, even if it is the same model.
Our inspiration comes from almost everywherefrom the mysteries of historical jewels, to the life cycles of nature, to everything around us: architecture, art, and travel. For us, inspiration comes at the right time, and we have to keep our eyes open for new discoveries.
Each collection has its own historyWe love that the client is fully introduced in the moodboard of inspiration and influences of each of the pieces.
From the sketch to the final piece
All LAVANI pieces are made in our workshops by hand, using traditional jewelry techniques. The first of the pieces, in many cases, is sculpted by hand, to later make the mold that will give rise to all the pieces, using the ancient method of lost wax casting.
Our softly polished or brushed textures can only be achieved with high quality hand finishes.
Natural stones have been part of our DNA from the very beginning. We started making dyed pieces with natural quartz druse, being pioneers in Spain in using this stone in designer jewelry.
Today we have a catalog of natural, semi-precious and precious stones of vibrant colors and responsible origin, coming from various parts of the world. Our experts carefully select each stone individually, paying special attention to its color and texture, so that they look spectacular once cut.
Sometimes, we use the "raw" stone, that is, as nature provides it to us. Other times, we carve it and add facets, to give them shine. The carving of the stones is a very laborious process, since they have to fit the mold we have created.
All our gold-plated pieces are plated with 2 or 3 microns of gold. This micronage is much higher than the European production, and means that the jewelry is plated two and three times in a row, achieving a thick layer of gold. This process allows the fusion of pure metals, without nickel or other alloys of inferior metals.
In addition, all our jewelry has a final lacquered layer. This layer protects the metal, preventing it from scratching, making the bath last longer and avoiding allergies.
Free of cadmium, tin and nickel. With a layer of protective lacquer and noble metals to take care of you.
Why our jewellery does not cause allergies
All our jewelry is hypoallergenic. From Lavani's workshop, we are very aware that many of you are allergic to some metals. For this reason, we work every day to ensure that all our jewelry is allergy-free:
- We do not use cadmium, tin or nickel in any of our jewellery, as these are the main allergens.
- All pieces are finished with a final coat of protective lacquer, which prevents you from developing an allergy.
- We use only noble metals, as they are proven to be hypoallergenic.
Once we have the three-dimensional design, we send it to the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office to validate the registration and patent of the industrial design. The designs undergo a careful study, since the SPTO must ensure that it is a totally original model. Only when we have the industrial registration file approved, we have the collection ready to launch!
This is an exceptional step that we take to ensure the originality of our models and to avoid that other companies produce them with poorer quality that can be detrimental to your purchase. Always choose the original, say no to copies.
