Brazilian born jewellery designer Fernando Jorge takes inspiration from the laidback attitude and effortless sensuality of his home country. Initially studying in Sa~o Paulo, Jorge worked for over a decade in key design roles for various Brazilian jewellery labels before moving to London for an MA in Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martins. His first eponymous collection, launched in 2010, was received with critical acclaim and the designer subsequently established his brand in the UK. Jorge’s pieces are imbued with sensuality, energy and movement. His 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. The result is distinctly sculptural jewelry that is both elegant and modern. Having gained an international media following, the designer is widely considered to be amongst the brightest emerging talents in the jewellery and fashion worlds. Jorge’s notable achievements include : winner of Best in Colored Gemstones (2014) and Best in Diamonds (2017) at the Couture Jewelry Show, “Best Emerging Accessories Designer” by the British Fashion Council (2015) and Business of Fashion’s 500 People Shaping the Global Fashion Industry (2014 & 2015).
