Heritage Filigree Jewelry Brand ELEUTERIO

Makes US Debut at COUTURE

Heritage filigree jewelry maker Eleuterio makes its US debut at COUTURE 2018 this year in a strategic effort to continue expanding the Portuguese brand’s global footprint. Founded in 1925, Eleuterio has always specialized in the art of handmade gold filigree jewelry, an ancient technique which the company has perfected. 

The company’s workshops were first founded in 1925 in Travassos, a northern region of Portugal known for its strong handcraft traditions in jewelry making. The company’s namesake, Eleuterio Antunes, moved to preserve the traditional filigree jewelry craft techniques during a time when mass production and casting nearly made such precious skills extinct. Efforts by other firms to replicate the look of filigree with new casting methods inevitably impacted the quality and finesse of the jewels and could not compare to the fine traditional hand-worked pieces produced by the artisans of Eleuterio.

Today, Eleuterio remains honored to preserve, promote, and perpetuate the unique art of hand-made filigree jewelry making which has endured in Portugal for more than 5,000 years. Eleuterio and its workshops remain rooted in Northern Portugal where the company first began, led by the third generation of the Eleuterio family, Rosa and Luis Antunes.

All Eleuterio filigree jewelry pieces are inherently unique, exhibiting the slight differences that speak of the skilled craftsman’s hand. Eleuterio’s collections span from contemporary to classic aesthetic influences, from traditional Portuguese motifs to Art Deco designs and organic floral designs. Each crafted of the highest quality, the diverse yet refined filigree jewelry collections reflect the global soul of this haute, heritage jewelry brand.

Now, Eleuterio comes to COUTURE as a step towards further global expansion, selecting the elite show as the ideal venue to reintroduce the fine art of Portuguese filigree jewelry to the United States and beyond.

About Eleuterio: Established in 1925, heritage filigree jewelry brand Eleuterio was founded in 1925, specializing in gold filigree jewelry of the highest quality. Located in Northern Portugal, the brand and workshops remain owned and operated by the third generation of the Eleuterio family, Rosa and Luis Antunes. Preserving and protecting a vital Portuguese ancestral tradition, the artisans of Eleuterio hand-make each filigree piece with delicate lace-like gold threads using techniques that date back over 5000 years. Today, Eleuterio skillfully reinterprets this traditional filigree art into a contemporary, globally inspired filigree collection crafted in gold and diamonds, available throughout Portugal and beyond.

New York-based jewelry manufacturer, Just Perfect MSP® is pleased to announce that the Director of the US Patent and Trademark Office has awarded them the patent for their engineering and design concept Perfect Fit™ which prevents today’s larger and more top-heavy rings from falling to the side of the finger because of the additional weight.

“We are thrilled that the Patent and Trademark office saw the uniqueness and value of our concept”, said Edward Zylka, President of Just Perfect MSP®, who was inspired to create the idea after noticing how few celebrity engagement rings rarely sat upright in magazine photos. 

Further research by Zylka (and underscored by studies from “The Knot” and other bridal publications) pointed to the fact that today’s engagement rings continue to get larger. Zylka adds, “with the popularity of halo styling, larger diamonds, and colored gemstone centers the phenomenon of the ill-fitting ring appeared to be a challenge worth addressing from a design and engineering perspective.”

The result! Perfect Fit™, an ergonomically engineered design technologically that is sculpted into the ring’s profile and ensures that the ring is both comfortable and that the center stones remain on top of the finger. Additionally, the patented concept adds a touch more weight to the bottom of the shank to help balance the top. Perfect Fit™ technology is available across a variety of the company’s ring offerings, from engagement rings to wedding bands, anniversary rings and fashion rings. Further, because Just Perfect MSP® specializes in customization, retail orders are delivered in a wide variety of metals, diamond qualities/colors, and colored gemstone combinations expeditiously, within 5 business days.

Perfect Fit™ will be highlighted at the JCK Las Vegas Show at the Just Perfect MSP® booth (Bayview/Bridal 61036). Retailers wishing more information or wanting to make a show appointment should call (877) 201-0005 and speak to Donna Karnicki.
