BOLD UNI­VERSE

Adorn - - OFF THE SHELF -

Fer­nando Jorge ex­plores a brave new world with uni­sex jew­ellery de­signs that un­der­score his na­tive sen­si­bil­ity with sculp­tural forms. Par­al­lel – his first foray into uni­sex cre­ations – has stemmed from his de­sire to wear his own cre­ations. “I love jew­ellery, but all my de­signs so far have been for women. Af­ter 15 years of de­sign­ing, I finally felt a strong de­sire to wear jew­ellery and de­sign pieces that men as well as women could wear,” he says.

Cush­ion-cut brown di­a­monds and grad­u­at­ing lines set the tone of the col­lec­tion along with in­ter­est­ing semi-precious stones that ac­cent the cuff­links, uni­sex pen­dants, rings and bracelets. For the cuffs, Fer­nando has cre­ated a beige-toned al­loy us­ing palladium: par­al­lel lines in yel­low, beige and white gold lean to­wards mas­culin­ity in the Grooved and Dou­bled bracelets and rings. In­laid with brown horns (buf­falo), the gold Tag bracelets and rings bear a soft beige hue. The bend­able gold snake chain – Fer­nando’s sig­na­ture mo­tif – slith­ers through his par­al­lel uni­verse and ex­tends into sev­eral fem­i­nine pieces, com­pris­ing chain ear­rings, pen­dants, neck­laces and ru­ti­lated quartz cock­tail rings. Thor­oughly con­tem­po­rary!
