RUUSK believes in creating unique heirloom jewellery with purpose and intention. All pieces are made to order and are customisable to encourage meaningful and intimate connection with your treasured piece.
We’re motivated by timeless and deliberate designs, traditional jewellery making techniques, sustainability and conscious production.
“Designing for life is my motto. It’s about striving to create meaningful pieces that withstand trends and time, those pieces that you wear with love and which, in a way, become a part of you. This is what inspires me.”
- Tania Gnecchi Ruscone
TRADITIONAL AND TIMELESS METHODS
Inspired by handmade heirloom jewellery, all RUUSK pieces are made using traditional ring carving methods to create contemporary shapes for you to customise. Each piece begins as a wax carving created by Tania in our Newcastle studio and then worked on with master stone setters and engravers to help bring our beautiful and expertly crafted pieces to life.
HANDMADE IN AUSTRALIA
Our values of durability and sustainability lead us to use locally recycled and refined precious metals including 9ct, 14ct and 18ct Yellow, Rose and White Gold. Our pieces are all hand carved, cast and polished in Newcastle and Sydney and we’re proud to work with local jewellers to support the continuation of traditional jewellery techniques and skills.
DURABILITY & SUSTAINABILITY
Our jewellery is designed for you to wear daily and last a lifetime. We believe that by creating durable pieces, we help encourage a quality over quantity mindset that leads to buying less and reducing our impact on the planet. In addition to using durable materials, we’ve also adopted low or zero waste processes. We mindfully procure our metals from local refiners and recyclers of precious metal in whom are also committed to re-investing in green technology and methods. Our studio is powered from a combination of renewables and carbon-offset energy and all of our supplies from scrap metal to studio paper are recycled when possible. We also love working with client’s recycled or heirloom stones to help them bring new life into a previously loved piece.
All RUUSK diamonds and are purchased from accredited Diamond suppliers and are conflict-free. All Sapphires in our collection pieces are locally sourced and we work with Australian Argyle Diamonds upon request. We are proud to partner with trusted suppliers that help us source local stones when possible. If you wish to create a piece using Australian Diamonds please contact us to enquire about sourcing these unique stones. We also love to work with your heirloom or vintage stones. All of our pieces are cast in solid Gold.
PERSONALISED & MEANINGFUL
We embrace the power of purchasing intentional and meaningful pieces that you can treasure for a lifetime and pass down through generations. Our organic designs celebrate the imperfections that make each piece unique. The ability to customise your design aims to future inspire an emotional connection to the pieces we choose to wear and own. Furthermore, we strive to make your creative experience is as personable, thoughtful and beautiful as the piece we create for you.
