Paulo do Vale Goldsmith

R. Machado dos Santos 73, 9500-083 Ponta Delgada, Portugal

The inspiration for Paulo do Vale’s Azorean black gold jewelry came from the artisan’s son, who suggested do Vale make a piece of jewelry from basalt found on the beach. The volcanic rock is hand-crafted with gold, silver and even diamonds, turned into one-of-a-kind pieces that make unique souvenirs.
