Welcome to the world of Ernesto Moreira. A world of elegance, luxury, and romance: a world where the most amazing visions are transformed into the most breathtaking realities. In this world, beauty begins with inspiration. The inspiration can come in many forms: perhaps a client or a pattern found in nature; perhaps an object in the world around us, such as the curve of an architectural element or simply the raw materials themselves. Once inspired, the process of translating the vision into a reality begins. It is a meticulous process which involves exacting precision and the minutest attention to detail. The final result is a work of art wrought in precious metals and punctuated with the finest diamonds, the most unique gems and the highest quality pearls.
