Brazilian born jewellery designer Fernando Jorge has developed a truly unique aesthetic. His work encapsulates the laidback attitude and effortless sensuality of his home country.
Initially studying in São Paulo, Jorge worked for over a decade for Brazilian jewellery companies before moving to London for a Masters degree in Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martins. His graduation collection, presented in 2010, was received with critical acclaim and the designer subsequently established his eponymous brand in the UK.
Jorge’s pieces are imbued with sensuality, energy and movement. His work is inherently Brazilian, using locally sourced and hand carved gemstones, all detailed by his signature finish in fluid and delicate gold structures and diamonds. The result is distinctly sculptural jewellery 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 world. Jorge’s notable achievements include: winner of Best in Colored Gemstones (2014), Best in Diamonds (2017), and Editor’s Choice (2018) at the Couture Jewelry Show, “Diamonds of the Year” from Town & Country (2018), British Fashion Awards nominations for “Best Emerging Accessories Designer” by the British Fashion Council (2014 & 2015), Business of Fashion’s 500 People Shaping the Global Fashion Industry (yearly since 2014), GEM Award for “Jewellery Designer of the Year (2019), and the Town & Country Award for “Best in Diamonds” (2020).
Jorge’s collections can be found in the most prestigious stores in 25 cities around the world. The designer’s showroom and creative headquarters are located in London and he has a by-appointment space in São Paulo.
