For more than 20 years, Daniel Vior has found his inspiration, designed, and produced his artistic creations in the heart of Barcelona. He likes to work with silver which he forms and frequently ornaments with precious stones and coloured enamels of his own creation.
Beginning with a concept, he makes a standard drawing which he later develops and adapts according to its function, be it ring, earring, or necklace.
The meaning of life inspires Daniel Vior’s designs. He focuses himself on nature with an almost scientific point of view, deriving his concepts from plant life, and malacology. He explores their significance and possibilities.
The structures of his pieces are metaphors of desires and feelings related to actions such as distancing, attraction, growth, flexibility, touching, and diluting.
A Quote from Daniel: “Everything starts when you fall in love with a concept: the abstraction of a word, an organic solution, a conclusion from investigating a structure, a shape, a composition,… and you want to represent it, to make it tangible, and it all starts again when this tiny object becomes part of your self-expression and language, acquiring its sense and transmitting its content: an emotional and aesthetic significance.”
The Daniel Vior Collection is produced in Gold (750), Silver (925) with a Rhodium and Palladium coating that strengthens the piece and delays the natural oxidation process, or Silver (925) with gold plating (22k, Au.5 microns).
Daniel Vior applies his knowledge of traditional jewellery making his own particular techniques and designs. Each process is carried out by hand in our Barcelona workshop. This enables us to directly control the complete process and guarantee for a period of 2 years any type of manufacturing fault.
On the back of each piece you will find two engravings concerning its creator and composition. One of the plates shows the creator’s name, Daniel Vior with the number assigned by the official Catalan College of Jewellers, in addition to the model number which permits us to identify the piece if needed.
Daniel Vior utilizes natural gemstones such as amethyst, citrine, tourmaline, pearl, etc., the majority of them being specifically cut according to the jewel’s design.
Occasionally, and as indicated in each jewel’s certificate, Daniel Vior uses artificial materials such as Murano Crystals, synthetic opal, and for ecological reasons, reconstituted coral.
