Adel Chefridi was born in the old city of Tunis, along the Mediterranean coast. He came to New York in 1998 where he founded his Studio and created his designs by drawing from his multicultural background. He creates his pieces using natural gem stones and solid precious metals. His designs emphasize simplicity, wearability Screen Shot 2013-11-18 at 7.10.36 PMand durability, all while having a friendly and peaceful feel that make them wearable everyday. Most pieces will have a gemstone or multiple stones in the design, that involves stone setting techniques ranging from bead work to microsetting.  In Adel’s words “The colors of natural gemstones are the best compliment to the natural beauty of people. My work is an attempt to present the innate beauty of both the gemstones and the wearer.”

We love how simple yet beautiful Adel’s pieces are. Easy to work into any style, Adel’s jewelry is perfect for anyone who just wants to add a little something special to their outfit. Adel says that “A beautiful design does not add to the gem anything that it doesn’t already have, but rather reveals the beauty it already possesses.  In turn, a beautiful piece of jewelry does not add to the wearer, but unveils a truer identity, one that we immediately recognize in the mirror.  Falling in love with a special piece of jewelry is no different than any other love story.”
