Brazilian-born jewelry designer Fernando Jorge takes inspiration from the laidback attitude and effortless sensuality of his home country. Though based in the UK, his brand’s aesthetic is inherently Brazilian, using locally sourced gemstones and minerals detailed with his signature finish: unique cuts and the use of delicate gold snake chain. Jorge worked for over a decade for Brazilian jewelry labels before earning an M.A. in jewelry design at Central Saint Martins in London and launching his eponymous collection in 2010. He is considered among the brightest emerging jewelry designers garnering international media attention and awards from COUTURE, Town & Country, and the British Fashion Council among others.
