For Silvia Furmanovich, luxury is all about rarity. Her sophisticated, handcrafted jewelry is made using painstaking ancestral techniques: a combination of craft learned from her goldsmith father and her own deep passion for the natural world, travel, color and fashion. Although every piece is daring â€“ in terms of both scale and imagination â€“ 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 â€“ many of which are one-of-a-kind â€“ are grounded in ancient Egyptian and Native American iconography but wholly relevant for a cutting-edge woman. Silvia is based in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
