ART IN JEWELLERY: GUSTAVO ROSA BY CRIS PORTO, SAO PAULO BRAZIL
I often find myself wandering through the beautiful streets of Jardim Europa in São Paulo when I’m visiting my family. It’s a beautiful place full of creative wonder and curious art, architecture and jewellery trends. The Gustavo Rosa gallery was my destination on this particular occasion and with such happy art, I knew it was going to be a fun day.
What I love the most about Gustavo Rosa, perhaps, is that his artistic talent goes beyond the canvas. We’re talking jewellery, of course! Or should I say, wearable art.
This avant-garde jewellery collection is the result of a five-year collaboration with jeweller Cris Porto of Brazil. After years of research, the final collection was conceptualized and crafted into wearable art, using the finest gold, diamonds, sapphires, tsavorites, rubies, amethyst, and enamel work.
A native of São Paulo, Brazil, Gustavo Rosa was born in 1946 and has established himself as one of Brazil’s most recognized and respected artists. His paintings are full of lively, playful characters and possess a cheeky sense of simplicity that have a calming and optimistic effect on the viewer.

The choice of jewels used in the Gustavo Rosa jewellery collection capture the colourful essence of each character’s personality. Rosa is known for using a soft yet intense palette and the jewels deliver this spectrum in an explosion of colour! The collection is a lyrical expression of Gustavo Rosa’s happy, infectious art. A joy to wear!
