Horatio Ramirez-Achinelli was born in La Plata, Argentina in 1941. He studied at the National School of Fine Arts in La Plata. His passions of precious gemstones and the art of carving and polishing lead him to Europe to study his craft further. He has exhibited throughout South America and Europe and has done many private commissions including pieces in The Vatican and The White House.
"The artist Horatio Ramirez-Achinelli has since a very early age been a devoted to fine arts, painting and sculpture. He was especially attracted to the enchantment of precious stones. For nearly thirty years he has been devoted to studying gemstones, from the search in the terrain until it's final elaboration.
His works travel all over the world and in them we can appreciate the excellent quality in classic and modern design. These are unique pieces, which illustrate the great importance for this artist to follow the lines and nature of each material."
