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).
In order to give his jewellery energy and movement, Fernando Jorge works closely with highly specialized craftsmen in Brazil and Italy. When creating a new piece, Fernando concurrently envisions the structures and mechanisms that will be needed in order to bring his creations to life. While a piece might look finished, it does not come alive in Fernando’s eyes until the movement fits the vision.
Recognizing this significance of product engineering and design, Fernando is continuously pushing the boundaries of jewellery innovation. Each collection has a story, a history of how it came to be from its genesis to the final design, but what has remained the same, a constant in his work, is that every piece is uniquely crafted – whether by hand or by highly specialized techniques – the craftmanship is ingrained.
