Ricardo Basta Fine Jewelry is a third generation jeweler, whose glittering offerings can be found right here in Century City at 10307 Santa Monica Blvd.
Basta, who was trained in Europe, is an industry award-winning jewelry designer renowned for his creative abilities using gemstones from all over the world along with rare and uniquely natural-colored diamonds in precious metals that he alloys himself.
Basta’s signature can be found in pieces where he marries elements from Victorian or Edwardian designs with a contemporary twist, which gives his pieces their “wow” factor.
Los Angeles Magazine dubbed Basta the “Jeweler’s Jeweler” with his unique ability to custom design and manufacture one-of-a-kind pieces for his clients.
Basta says of his work, “The best sense of accomplishment actually comes from the moment a client receives their custom designed piece and says, ‘It’s more beautiful than I envisioned it to be!’”
Basta is known for sourcing only ethically mined gems and diamonds. He has been honored by Gem associations; museums exhibit his work; and Hollywood celebrities snap up his designs.
