In Montreal's Little Italy is a hidden gem. Oritalia Jewellers has been serving an appreciative and growing clientele since 1986. Specializing in unique and high-quality pieces, Oritalia offers you a wide range of jewellery. In the workshop behind the elegant showroom, jeweller Sergio Porcari has at his disposal all the tools of the trade. Meanwhile, in his long experience as a jeweller, he has mastered all techniques and processes.
Master jeweller Sergio Porcari learned his craft from the best in the world. His native Valenza, Italy, has been an international hub of the jewellery trade for two centuries. Expert jewellers practised their art in every part of the beautiful small city in the Piedmont region of northern Italy. Fascinated by a neighbour's skills, Sergio chose to follow his passion and become a jeweller against the wishes of his parents, who preferred that he study accountancy. Fifty-four years later, it is clear that he made the right choice.
A graduate of the world renowned Benvenuto Cellini State Institute of Art in Valenza, Sergio distinguished himself early. At 22 years of age, in 1968, his teacher won the prestigious International Diamond Award for a necklace that then toured the world. Lesser known is the fact that it was Sergio who brought the design to life after 975 hours of careful craftsmanship. He moved to Canada in 1977 and continued to develop his skills as a jeweller in Montreal.
Sergio, a master jeweller, specializes in hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind custom jewellery. Oritalia uses only 18 carat gold (unless the client requests a different carat) and the finest diamonds, emeralds, blue sapphires, rubies, and others gem stones. If you have a clear idea for a piece, then Sergio can bring it to life. If you are less certain, then you can discuss your general ideas and he will sketch designs of the prospective piece.
Engagement rings, wedding bands, pendants, earrings, necklaces, and special creations – Oritalia is unique in Montreal in offering you personalized jewellery.
Proud to represent a long tradition of high-quality Italian jewellery, Oritalia offers you a fine selection of jewellery that will make your most important events sparkle and become part of your family heritage
