At Ricardo Basta , jewelry runs in the family. As a third-generation jeweler, Basta combines modern techniques with old-world techniques–learned from his apprenticeships in Europe– to craft each piece with the “Basta touch.” The result? A timeless work of art to take pride in owning.

“I apprenticed the old fashioned way by literally learning from the ‘floor up’,” Basta says. “I began working for my uncle, a very well-trained European jeweler from an early age, and he had me sweeping the shop floors!… When I began working on vintage styles of jewelry and how the pieces were created, I began to understand jewelry. It humbled me to work on period pieces properly, I deconstructed my tools of today and focused on the old-world techniques to get the right results so pieces remained untouched even with extensive repairs. This opened a whole new world of creativity in designing for me, it is a style that inspires me: romantic, organic fluidity.”

“Today, in the entire world, jewelry is advancing by leaps and bounds compared to my humble beginnings,” Basta explains. “My foremost desire is to fulfill my artistic passion and be true to my vision while diving into new arenas of possible movement and how to execute that! I like pushing the creative envelope always!”

“I like to add moving parts or something that articulates to some degree, even if it’s a minor movement. Like a Panda Brooch I made, the Panda has a carved Jade leaf in its’ mouth that moves when you walk; or I have ring conversions that are a ring cloaked within another ring, which gives you two looks in one, I have also created a ring that converts to a pendant by removing the top of the ring because why not! I feel this has become my signature,” Basta says. 

Basta’s eclectic style paired with the excellence of knowledge and execution in his craft has molded the Ricardo Basta brand into a treasure trove of artwork that should be celebrated and adorned by all.
