Ricardo Basta


Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina Ricardo Basta moved to the United States at the young age of 19. He started out working for his uncle in a jewelry store located in Los Angeles, California. This early start led him to eventually shadow and apprentice high-end European jewelers such as, Frances Klein. Under Klein, Basta gained experience designing jewelry from Edwardian, Art Deco and Victorian periods, which inspired him to create something of his own. Basta is known mainly for his engineering abilities and much of his jewelry contains built-in movement. He is praised highly as a platinum expert and was one of the first to use the metal back in the mid-80s. His experience with the metal helped him to write many articles for the Platinum Guild Internationals on the subjects of recasting antique jewelry and casting.

In 2007, Alessandra Gallo Jewellery and designer Kristin Keller approached Basta and asked him to help create a piece to raise awareness on diamonds and child soldiers. The impactful piece came to be known as The Blood Diamond Pin and Basta personally donated some of the materials and labor. The pin was then worn by many including Leonardo DiCaprio, Djimon Hounsou Ryan Gosling and director, Ed Zwick during the 2007 Oscars Ceremony supporting Amnesty International Campaigns on Child Soldiers and Conflict Diamonds. During that year, Ricardo Basta had his first his exhibit inside the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and then was given a show in the Gemological Institute of American Museum in Carlsbad, California. Later, in 2017, Basta was inducted into the AJDC (American Jewelry Design Council) for his prestigious designs and quality jewelry.
