For Silvia Furmanovich, luxury is all about rarity. Her sophisticated, handcrafted jewelry is made using painstaking ancestral techniques. Although every piece is daring – in terms of both scale and imagination – there is also a sense of pure opulence found in the balance of unusual materials (copper, wood, and carvings, among others) and 18-karat gold, diamonds and dazzling colored gemstones. These highly specialized creations – many of which are one-of-a-kind – are grounded in ancient Egyptian and Native American iconography but wholly relevant for a cutting-edge woman. Silvia is based in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
