Jewel of the day: Fernando Jorge Diamond, Topaz and White Gold Ear Cuffs

Earrings that hug the curve of the ear rather than hanging from the lobe have gained traction. This sparkly pair is by Brazilian designer Fernando Jorge, part of his Fusion collection.

Jorge’s “about me” page notes, “Brazilian born jewellery designer Fernando Jorge takes inspiration from the laidback attitude and effortless sensuality of his home country.

Initially studying in São Paulo, Fernando worked for almost ten years 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.

Fernando’s pieces are imbued with sensuality, energy and movement – his aesthetic is inherently Brazilian. He often uses locally sourced gemstones and minerals – often overlooked in his home country due to their abundance – giving them his signature finish, including unique cuts and the use of delicate gold snake chain. The result has a distinctly sculptural feel 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 alike. His collections are stocked by the most prestigious stores in London, Paris, Beirut, New York, Los Angeles and Dallas, and more globally by online retailers.”

These earrings are made with diamonds and white topaz set in 18k white gold and sell for €7,850.
