Italian designer Corrado Giuspino keeps the art deco era alive in a stylish new collection of jewels

A strong sense of style runs through Italian jeweller Corrado Giuspino's one-off designs, which are heavily influenced by art deco and the orient.

Corrado Giuspino's one-off jewels are bold and highly original. A graduate of the Academy of Fashion and Costume Design in Rome, Giuspino's fashion background shines through in his designs, which weave the geometric forms and bold colours of the deco era and oriental influences into dramatic statement pieces incorporating Giuspino's favourite "ingredients": jade, pearls and diamonds.  

The fashion pack love him and it's not difficult to see why. Prior to the launch of his first collection back in 2008, he worked in the fashion industry, and there is a strong sense of style running through each of his creations. Each piece is hand-crafted in Costa Smerelda in Sardinia, where Giuspino lives and works, but his jewels have earned him an international following and regularly grace the pages of Vogue, Elle and Marie Claire magazines.

His new collection for 2013 is, as always, inspired by the strong lines of the art deco movement. Black onyx, green jade and red topaz - those classic colours of the orient - feature prominently alongside pretty lilac chalcedony cabochons and dark Tahitian pearls.

Two pearl bracelets can be transformed into a second piece of jewellery - one a pendant, the other a brooch - by removing the central motifs, while the beautiful carved jade drops on a pair of earrings were sourced on one of Giuspino's regular trips to Asia, where he hunts out the pearls, jade, lacquer, onyx and colourful gemstones that are a recurring theme in each new collection.

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.
