Undeniably precious remodels: Via Sollertia


Jewellery handed down or gifted to you is undeniably precious, but it if it doesn’t suit your style or is broken, you just won’t wear it. Think how much more meaningful it would be to wear the gems from a loved one, rather than just admire them in a drawer.

 

 

With Via Sollertia having the services of the South Island’s leading gem-setter, the perfect remodel is easy: your precious and semi-precious stones plus the metal can be redesigned into pieces you won’t want to take off.

You can browse pieces in store and in the catalogue and see what design styles jump out and the design process often sees people add to the components. The final design can be drawn up for you, while your stones and metal stay on site in the hands of a master craftsman. The finished piece will be personal, beautiful and a source of everyday joy.

Jewellery to cherish: Via Sollertia


Apart from family and good health, the one thing people hold dear to their hearts is their jewellery; the thought of losing or having to part with treasured pieces would seem almost unbearable.

 

 

Via Sollertia has always understood this; they design jewellery to be cherished for a lifetime.

They oversee every commission from start to finish, and clients are assured nothing ever leaves the studio, as every piece is designed, handmade and completed in-house with a full-time jeweller onsite.

Clients can opt for either a bespoke, one-off design created specifically for them, or they can choose from Via Sollertia designs created before. Hand-selecting their own diamonds or gemstones makes the piece uniquely theirs.

It takes four weeks for a piece to be completed, so there’s plenty of time to plan that incredibly romantic overseas proposal you’ve been dreaming about.

At every stage of the jewellery-making process – literally from design right through to the final product – special care and attention is taken to ensure their footprint on the earth is as light as possible. It’s been a prominent philosophy of the independent jewellers, located at 11 New Regent St, since the beginning.

Bespoke and sentimental: Via Sollertia


The true meaning of bespoke refers to handcrafted design, developed in close consultation with the client.

 

 

A bespoke ring crafted from a piece of jewellery with sentimental value is a meaningful way of re-creating something beautiful, says designer Clare of Via Sollertia. “We often have customers bring in jewellery from their great grandmother or a family member who passed away, so we can turn it into bridal jewellery or an engagement ring. It’s my favourite thing to create – I love the family story and sentimentality behind it. And there is no wastage, so it’s also an eco-conscious, sustainable option.”

Located in the heart of the city on iconic New Regent Street, the family-owned business provides a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and can work with any budget. “We’re willing to go above and beyond what customers expect. Throughout the creation process, they are involved every step of the way.”

Significantly You: Via Sollertia


The symbolism behind marital rings is of such significance that in trying to find the perfect ring that says who they are, couples can easily become overwhelmed.

 

Via Sollertia

 

Via Sollertia Jewellery has been creating exquisite custom-made jewellery for 23 years, from rings bracelets and bangles, through to necklaces, pendants and earrings, or whatever else is desired. Just like food and fashion, jewellery changes with the times, and Via Sollertia’s jewellery designer, Clare, says there’s a definite shift towards more contemporary, eclectic styled rings nowadays.

“There’s an interesting move towards rings being comprised of a mix of shapes, colours and cuts – as in marquise, baguette and princess, for example. But it’s also about how the ring sits on the finger,” Clare says.
Via Sollertia prides itself on unsurpassable craftsmanship in producing bespoke jewellery that absolutely says it all.

Bespoke treasure: Via Sollertia


There’s a slight organic shift happening in ring trends, so think Clare and Joel of New Regent Street’s Via Sollertia.

 

 Via Sollertia

 

They design and sell mouth-wateringly lovely engagement and wedding rings, amongst other jewellery. The current mood seems to point in the direction of very simple yet hand-crafted, faceted rings in which the uniqueness lies in a certain ‘unfinished, non-uniform quality.’

“People are requesting beautiful buttery textures in which the metal appears soft and fluid,” Clare says.  She’s able to design and bring any ring-profile desire to fruition. Every piece is created on-site, to any dreamy specifications. The finish created can be contemporary or traditional; raw, beaten, rough, or glossy.

Desirable Innovation: Via Sollertia


The team at Via Sollertia understands that the ring becomes a part of you, an extension of your essence and simply being stunningly beautiful just isn’t enough anymore.

 

Via Sollertia

 

Design innovation is as elemental as air and water to Via Sollertia and Clare loves “that we have created something beautiful to solve a problem”.

She is talking about Via Sollertia’s own diamond-shaped ring keeper necklace. The ring keeper necklace was forged by the desire of women who do physical work, or jobs requiring continuous handwashing, to keep their precious ring completely safe, yet still wear it. You can display the necklace and ring, or tuck it safely into your top.

When your ring is nestling on your finger, the necklace stands alone as a fabulous piece. “We were challenged to design a product and it has become desirable in its own right,” she says. The ring keeper necklaces are bespoke to you, plus sizing and angles ensure your ring stays put. Doctor, drainlayer, dishwasher or busy mum, you need this clever little beauty.
