Our Story

 
Valentina Borin's first career was in the Italian fashion industry from 2005 - 2016 where she fell in love with design and beauty while developing multiple collections every year. Yearning for something beyond her roots, she moved to Australia and discovered her passion for jewellery. Melding her tradition with the modern culture of Australia, ALTRA was born.
ALTRA was established in Sydney during 2019. ALTRA creates unisex fine jewellery featuring bold pieces with weight and prominence. Gemstones are chosen for their unique properties to bring the pieces to life. We believe in making jewellery that feels different to any piece you’ve ever worn.
Sustainability & Production:
Using high-quality metals, semi-precious and precious stones; Valentina ensures ethical and sustainable practices by sourcing all her materials from 'Morris and Watson' who do not support activities that benefit conflict, violence and human rights abuses. The majority of their precious metal products are produced using recycled waste from other Jewellers in the industry, along with local mines from within Australasia. ALTRA pieces are made with the highest quality materials to ensure you are left with a piece that will last a lifetime.
Lifetime Promise:
We guarantee every piece we make. Our pieces are made to last a lifetime so that you can pass them down to generations. With ALTRA you are choosing to spend your money with a conscious designer and create a lifetime bond. If you are not 100% satisfied with one of our products at the time you receive it, or if your piece doesn't fit ALTRA will repair, replacement, or refund.
Gemstones:
ALTRA uses the power of gemstones to create jewellery with a purpose. Gemstones are chosen for their unique properties to create harmony and synergy within you. Each piece is crafted with strength and longevity in mind to ensure a deep relationship between you and your jewellery.
