F. Ribeiro

Desde 1981 a F. Ribeiro, Lda tem concebido peças de ourivesaria, exclusivamente em ouro, únicas e adaptadas às novas tendências da moda, respeitando a tradição portuguesa. A partir de 2002, a empresa constituiu-se como sociedade, mudou de instalações e de paradigma.

Com uma identidade e um longo passado na arte da filigrana milenar, a F. Ribeiro transformou-se numa empresa flexível, criativa e inovadora no design de joias.

A filigrana é uma arte exclusivamente manual, exigindo dos artesãos um trabalho muito minucioso, imaginativo e de grande destreza. A filigrana de aplicação, utilizada para motivos decorativos em joias contemporâneas, é o atual desafio da empresa.

A Amo Joias Portugal existe para concretizar os sonhos dos nossos clientes: o nosso segredo? Uma equipa jovem e motivada que trabalha na execução de projetos personalizados e que os nossos ourives transformam em autênticas obras de arte.

Pelo know-how acumulado ao longo de décadas na arte de trabalhar a filigrana em ouro, pelo facto de possuir trabalhadores no quadro com “Carta de Artesão” e a empresa ter o certificado de “Carta de Unidade Produtiva Artesanal” e por reunir todas as condições físicas necessárias para o acolhimento de grupos, a empresa F. Ribeiro Lda integra, em 2017, as oficinas aderentes à Rota da Filigrana.
