Since 1998 Andrew Geoghegan has been garnering a reputation for precision-designed chic; for pieces that unify sometimes seemingly contradictory elements – angular facets and soft curves, warm shades and metallic coldness. Unity is an ever-present theme and inspiration – of people and personalities as much as gems, precious metals, iridescent color and striking form. Today’s collections show the power of intricate design and detailing to fuse these elements into exquisite, timeless jewelry. ndrew’s early endeavors were not in jewelry design, but were vital to igniting that affinity with metals and his pursuit of crafted perfection. As a young sculptor, his experiments with metal would allow him to understand the characteristics and potential of this most elemental of materials. He learned how to manipulate and direct it, and how to marry it with other precious materials. This unorthodox background is part of what makes an Andrew Geoghegan piece distinctive – there’s clear empathy for the relationships between materials, his work unifying the practice of art and manufacturing craft. His own story, that past life comes through. Pieces take a sculptural form, and flights of imaginations could easily rescale and place them in the courtyard of the Royal Academy or the lobby of Le Louvre. Art is always part of the process and final piece – a unique ‘artful engineering’ that yields seductive beauty, endurance and distinction. It’s a uniqueness that has not gone unnoticed. There are plenty of awards and accolades, including the British Jewelry Association’s 2014 Designer of the Year Award, and Editor’s Choice at International Jewelry London 2015. This collection, inspired and created in a studio nestled among Yorkshire’s lush rolling hills is now winning friends and followers around the world.
The unity of things will always be a driving force –collections are a marriage of quirky bohemian Britishness and classic Gallic romance; it’s the joining of artistic flourish and precision manufacturing, sealed with the glue of beautifully clever, intricate design. But the most important union of all, the one that inspires the work most, is the one between jewelry and its wearer. The spirit and ambition of each creation is to enhance and illuminate beauty, never to eclipse it; to complement and invigorate it. Andrew Geoghegan makes jewelry for you to make your own – a quietly striking addition, your own work of art.

These contemporary, fresh and feminine designs make exquisite use of the remarkable variety of precious Brazilian stones, gold and diamonds.
Brazilian jewelry designer Carla Amorim’s collections directly addresses all of the romantic reasons why women wear jewelry: intimate moments like kisses shared under a canopy at garden party, playful and unexpected scenarios like getting caught in the rain with a lover, or receiving a bouquet of flowers from a beau. Amorim’s Romance collection is a storyboard of these occasions and others brought to life in 18k gold and gemstones in the über-feminine and curvaceous aesthetic that her fans have come to expect.
Carla Amorim was born in Brasília. As the darling of a demanding and high profile clientele, she has been creating her own jewelry since 1993. Carla’s creative work is based on three cornerstones: nature in all of its forms, the architecture of Brasília with the brilliant lines of Oscar Niemeyer and its piety.
Whether in earrings, rings, bracelets or necklaces, all precious materials are used, without distinction, to provide a perfect finish for each piece. Diamonds, sapphires, emeralds, tourmalines, tanzanites, Brazilian gemstones, pearls, and 18 K gold in various tones are all explored to achieve the desired effect.
Carla’s creative work has three main influences: Brazilian nature, the architecture Brasilia and the genius geometric lines by Oscar Niemeyer and her Catholic faith. Diamonds, pearls, gemstones and 18kt gold in different tones are used in the making of earrings, bracelets and necklaces to achieve the effect.
Music. Architecture. Nature. These are the inspiration for the Brazilian jewelry designer Carla Amorim.
Mark Schneider is a fashion forward designer who brings contemporary style to traditional engagement ring designs. His designs have won numerous awards, and one of his pieces is on permanent display in the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. Each piece is meticulously hand crafted using very high quality materials. Mark is a third-generation jeweler, and his love for jewelry and colored stones began in grade school with a coveted gemstone collection. He went on to earn his Bachelor of Science degree from California State University Long Beach, where he studied art and jewelry design. While in college, he enjoyed working with clay and metal, transferring that love to jewelry design. He feels fortunate to have the opportunity and ability to create jewelry with the finest rare gemstones available.
His clients are individuals who not only recognize the value of jewelry, but also appreciate the desirability of collecting his work. Many of Mark’s clients are returning clients, who are often looking for the next custom art piece to add to their Mark Schneider collection. He is the jeweler’s jeweler, having designed many custom pieces for jewelers and their spouses. Mark is intimately involved with every part of the process, from conception of his award winning pieces to the final touches that make his jewelry unique and distinguishable. It’s this commitment to quality that encourages museums and people from all over the country to contact Mark for custom design.
Mark is one of the few living designers to have a piece of jewelry on permanent display in the Smithsonian Institution Gem and Mineral Hall. He is also one of the most recognized American designers of our time. From his bold color pieces to his unique bridal designs, Mark Schneider pushes the conventional ideas of jewelry design and constantly strives to challenge himself. His distinct perspective on jewelry making has earned him some of the most coveted awards and honors within the industry.
It was not until 2001 that Mark noticed a lack of originality in one jewelry field in particular – engagement rings. He saw an industry often unimaginative and steeped in tradition. Mark decided to go against the grain and create something unique by designing a fresh and contemporary line of engagement rings. Just like his award winning colored gemstone jewelry designs, his engagement rings are clean and flowing, with nods towards architecture, furniture design, and nature. When designing, Mark places much importance on form and function, how the design looks from all angles, and how it looks on the hand. They are made to outlast the test of time, to be handed down through the generations, and each ring is truly a work of art for each bride to proudly wear.
