THE BEGINNING

piu-bello-di-un-gioiello-tuum-gioielli-made-in-italy

The TUUM concept was conceived by two young Italian entrepreneurs, Michele Alberti and Simone Finocchi, on the idyllic border between Tuscany and Umbria in July 2009.

This visionary team set out to make spirituality tangible for everyone by creating a jewellery brand with true passion and historical resonance.
Together they forged a collection of special jewels bearing a spiritual message that is unique to everyone who receives them.


TUUM means “Yours” in Latin


Infused with depth of meaning, the Latin word TUUM simply means “Yours” in a universal language of prayer and devotion. It has the power to convey an unconditional and unforgettable message of love, bearing within itself the timeless spirit of a gift to be treasured.


TUUM’s ORIGINS

piu-bello-di-un-gioiello-tuum-gioielli-made-in-italy-06

TUUM has a two-thousand-year-old, ever-evolving story that transcends time and physical borders to speak to the heart and soul directly.

From the region where Tuum is created came some of the most emblematic figures of the Renaissance – from Piero della Francesca to Michelangelo Buonarroti and Fra Luca Pacioli – who infused Italian art and culture with their indubitable genius.
A tangible aura of inspiration surrounds this land so rich in history, enhancing the intrinsic beauty of one of the world’s greatest traditions. Infused with the same magical aura, Tuum jewels convey the language of devotion in precious stones and metals, crafted and engraved by a masterful hand.

Today TUUM is available in 950 different jewelry, department, and concept stores worldwide. TUUM only expanded its horizons internationally in 2014, but it can already be found in various countries worldwide – Italy, Spain, France, Switzerland, Germany, UK, Slovenia, Austria, Scandinavia, Canada, and the USA. The original, uncanny design makes the TUUM project uniquely successful. The reach of TUUM is reflected on its Facebook page, with more than 270,000 followers (February 2015).

CREATIVE LAB 

Both a company and an evolving project, TUUM is a hotbed of ideas, drawings, and prototypes created by a tight-knit team of young and talented artisans. Each individual may have their own personal story and unique day-to-day diary, yet they all share the same passion for giving life to TUUM.
At TUUM the production, creative and logistical departments are perfectly connected and work in unison. Together we experiment, dare and create as a team. Ideas come to life through digital software, as a simple concept sketch is transformed into life-like renderings.

We are constantly refining our ideas and trying to meet the needs of our customers by engaging in conversation through social media.

PRODUCTION

piu-bello-di-un-gioiello-tuum-gioielli-made-in-italy-06

Each piece of TUUM jewellery is handmade in Italy. By using only the finest silver, gold and platinum embellished by precious stones and diamonds, our goldsmiths shape the materials and give birth to beauty.


The texts of some of the most well-known and meaningful prayers are rendered perfectly and crisply through the lost-wax casting process, a 5,700 years old sculpting technique which gives our jewels the tactility and charm of a handmade talisman.


HANDCRAFTED JEWELRY

piu-bello-di-un-gioiello-tuum-gioielli-made-in-italy-06

Each jewel is born from a wax model and manually refined through a delicate process of abrasion and polishing by hand to enhance its special qualities. The jewels are adorned with tiny details which make every piece unique.
Designing for people from all walks of life, in a world with diverse cultures, is no easy task and we take care to make our jewels meaningful to each individual.
At TUUM we design from the universal values we hold within and encourage the recipient of our jewels to interpret these values in their own individual way with a shared appreciation of beauty.

Our customers are part of the universal family that is free from restrictions of age, gender, or faith. Thousands of differnt interpretations have been given by people who wear our jewellery, all of which emphasise the unique power of TUUM.

Each piece of jewellery offers a complete tactile experience. If you are lucky enough to own one of our pieces we encourage you to spend some time just feeling the jewel in your hands, running it slowly between your fingers, to get lost in the perfect details and to connect to the messages held within.
Not only is there an aesthetic value to the jewels, but there is also an esoteric dimension of sound that resonates through the use of words as decoration.

The brand honors itself in being of the highest quality, and is proudly Made in Italy, from the metals, to packaging, catalogues and displays.
