A carnival of colour: Silvia Furmanovich's bold new jewels

Brazilian jeweller Silvia Furmanovich brings her unique jewellery vision to London, with bright colours and subtle details for a sophisticated and unusual look.


Sometimes I come across a jeweller and my reaction is immediate and wholly instinctive. With others I look and I ponder, I turn them over, I mull. With Silvia Furmanovich's jewels it was an instant, 'yes'! Her glossy, bright colours and rich, rippling textures have immediate 'I want' factor.

As warming as sunshine and as colourful as her home country, Furmanovich's Brazilian heritage is obvious. But her jewels go beyond the Brazilian stereotype of big stones and bright hues. Furmanovich's father was a goldsmith, which gives us an idea as to where she acquired her diverse range of techniques and a willingness to experiment with carving and colour.

There's an air of baroque splendour with a tropical twist in pieces such as the peacock feather motif earrings and the ornately carved antique comb cuff. And just what is that luscious orange stone that looks like a fan of finely-sliced mango held up to the sun? By combining colourful materials in surprising ways - such as a humble, blushing-pink cockle shell paired with a majestic emerald - Furmanovich is blazing a hot, new trail all of her own. 

A selection of Furmanovich's jewels is available at Couturelab.com and Bergdorff Goodman in New York.

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
