BACK­GROUND Af­ter re­ceiv­ing her Bach­e­lor of Fine Arts de­gree in Cal­i­for­nia, Diah Djo­jone­goro stud­ied fash­ion and later grad­u­ated from the GIA. The Sin­ga­pore­born In­done­sian worked in the fash­ion in­dus­try for Derek Lam, Gap, Edun and Teen Vogue in New York be­fore launch­ing her epony­mous jew­ellery brand in 2012. It took two years to de­velop her line, dur­ing which time she cre­ated be­spoke pieces for clients that spread by word of mouth. Her brand com­prises 10 on­go­ing col­lec­tions of high jew­ellery pieces in­tended for ev­ery­day wear.

DE­SIGN SIG­NA­TURE Many of her fine fil­i­gree and ab­stract for­ma­tions, said to have a rock ’n’ roll edge, are in­flu­enced by her love af­fair with New York City, such as the Pyra­mid col­lec­tion, whose shape was inspired by a struc­ture she saw on the roof of a build­ing near her apart­ment.

FAVOURITE MA­TE­RI­ALS Black­ened gold makes her edgy, high jew­ellery pieces look vintage yet cool, and fea­ture smaller pavé di­a­monds in in­tri­cate set­tings.
