Patricia Rios Detiger, designs and creates her jewelry in New York City, beginning each piece as a hand carved wax model.
Having lived in Uruguay, Argentina, Nepal, and Tanzania, and travelled extensively around the world, she is deeply influenced by tribal, native, and ethnic ornamentation. From Catholic religious iconography, Hindu and Buddhist deities and rites, African masks and patterns, to South American "voodoo", Marrakech, Amsterdam, Kathmandu, are all constant references.
The common thread is low key luxury - always using high quality, noble materials and exclusively natural, untreated stones to create modern fine jewelry.
New York City's legendary energy is an on going inspiration. Patricia lives with her 3 kids, husband, and dog, in Manhattan, only an F train ride away from New York's Diamond District, where she can often be found casting her pieces, sourcing stones and having them set by top diamond setters.
