Adel Chefridi

The colors of natural gemstones are the best complement to the natural beauty of people. My work is an attempt to present the innate beauty of both the gemstones and the wearer. 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. His work increasingly draws from his multicultural background, resulting in an attempt to reconcile past and present, nostalgia and hope. His designs emphasize simplicity, wearability, durability, and openness to light and movement. Using natural gemstones, his pieces have a friendly and peaceful feel that make them wearable everyday.
