When Jorge Adeler was a young man, growing up on the beautiful beaches of Mar del Plata, Argentina, he used to read news from Rome, NY, Paris and Moscow. Even then, he believed that to truly understand what the news meant, a person had to understand the origin and cultures of the people writing them. Years later, as a jewelry designer, his theory still rings true. To be able to understand a gem, first one has to understand its origin, its people, its country and its hidden emotion.
With this knowledge and understanding he is able to pair a gem with its rightful person. Only then can he communicate its secrets and mysteries and create a piece of jewelry with emotion and purpose. These pieces not only possess great value and beauty, but also allow the wearer to share a world that has fascinated mankind since ancient times.
