The Brazilian born, London-based jeweller Fernando Jorge is known for his sensual, gemstone-topped silhouettes and bright pops of colour, and has built his highly desirable collections into a multi award-winning brand over the last 10 years. His pieces are glamourous, exciting yet highly wearable, but could his pieces translate as alternative engagement rings?
As the owner of a custom Fernando Jorge engagement ring, I think the answer is yes. Sculptural, feminine and elegant, his pieces have a timeless feel that makes them work for any age - check out his mother modelling the pieces during lockdown in Brazil over on his instagram account for proof.
He has recently explored working purely in diamonds rather than adding his signature colourful palette of bright gemstones, so I've picked my 5 favourite (mainly) diamond pieces that would work well as an unconventional engagement ring. If you're looking for something feminine, stylish and unique, yet able to withstand the rough and tumble of being worn every day, check out my edit below.
Bold Diamonds: Fernando Jorge's work is inherently sensual, and the The Sequence Ring (above) is no exception. Graduating diamonds wrap around the finger and appear to be floating above the gold.
70s Glamour: The 'Gravity' ring from his Surround Collection features white diamonds set in dreamy pink opal; for a romantic but graphic feel.
Delicate: Fernando Jorge's mini 'Sequence' rings are an understated choice, but sparkly enough to stand out. Worn stacked or alone, this minimalist design is easy to wear.
The New Eternity: Shown above with a mini Sequence ring worn on the fourth finger, the Fluid Wave ring sets a row of diamonds between two undulating yellow gold bands.
Mixed Cuts: The Stream Wave ring uses a mix of baguette, pear, marquise, emerald and round cut diamonds set in between yellow gold.
