Where do you turn for amazing designer pieces this holiday season? Try Ciner, a company founded 119 years ago, that is still family owned and operated and is steadfastly dedicated to creating splendid jewelry that is as durable as it is glamorous. We went behind the scenes with the Ciner team to get the inside scoop on one of the oldest jewelry companies.
What words would you use to describe Ciner?
Elegant, timeless, unique, exquisitely made, glamorous, classic, sophisticated.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
Here at Ciner we value tradition and thus we get a lot of our inspiration from estate jewelry and heirloom treasures. We love mixing the old with the new to create an updated and modern look.
What materials do you use?
We use a combination of semi-precious, Swarovski and Czech stones. All pearls are fresh water and we adore mixed media including velvet, silk ribbon and cord.
Every stone is hand set and every pearl is hand strung and knotted. Each piece is finished with an 18 karat gold plated process that withstands the test of time.
What is the process used to create these magnificent pieces?
Each piece can take up to one week to complete once the design process has begun. We have archives that date back to our founding date of 1892. First we take a model from this archive and create a unique mold in the casting machine. We then sotter the piece, polish it and plate it. The plating process is a tedious process and each piece is dipped into 25 buckets filled with copper, nickel, rhodium and lastly gold! Once the piece is plated, the stones are hand set and laid to dry. At last, the fabulous timeless piece is completed.
What are your favorite things about working at Ciner?
We have all worked here for over 30 years and consider each other family. Since this is a family owned business we try to continue this tradition each generation. The creativity here is endless with all of the possibilities to make pieces that have history but are also modern. Our tremendous enthusiasm has allowed Ciner to thrive throughout the years.
