Handmade jewellery with talisman appeal, day to day and throughout generations
Inês Rio jewellery has a fresh and everlasting charm, in alternative to the traditional jewellery world, taking a modern approach to create an elegant collection of finely crafted pieces.
Portuguese jewellery designer Inês Rio often relates much of her design inspiration from her culture. Inês developed a love for art as far back as she can remember. Coming from a big family- she is the youngest of five children- Inês used to get fascinated by her mother’s jewellery box, with classic and modern jewels. And still does.
Inês graduated from the School of Architecture of the University of Lisbon and studied at the Politecnico di Milano, before moving back to Porto to complete a MA in Jewellery Design at the Catholic University. Having worked in Porto, Lisbon and Milan, Inês has an international background that is reflected in her distinctive style.
Jewellery for her is simultaneously dear and precious: a sentimental treasure that can also be a form of personal expression.
To her, the most fulfilling part of the process is that her creations are both contemporary and timeless and are meant to be passed down for generations.
All pieces are handmade in Porto, Portugal, and in the finest materials.
Collections designed by Inês to other brands are currently selling in Europe and the U.S.
