A Sydney jewellery designer has launched an exclusive range of pieces just for men.
Carabez Hombre is the new creation of Bronwyn Carabez, the woman behind Carabez Bespoke Jewellery.
She was inspired after a trip to Europe, where she noticed a lot of men wearing elegant and exclusive yet masculine jewellery.
Carabez said the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Business Association’s Fruits in Suits became her market research lab in Australia.
“I talked with a lot of boys—and a few girls too—about what they would like to wear, finding the balance between elegance and masculinity,” she said.
“After a few trials and errors, I am very pleased with my first male collection, The Carabez Hombre Ruiz collection that features a natural pearl on a coiled neoprene wrap with your choice of metal: sterling silver, gold or platinum.”
Carabez Bespoke Jewellery has forged a tradition of collections and signature pieces that were designed and handmade using traditional techniques and the finest diamonds, pearls and gemstones.
Each piece of jewellery is made in close consultation with the client, ensuring the perfect individual creation.
Carabez began her career over 20 years ago working at one of Australia’s most prestigious jewellers.
Her unparalleled skills in design and extensive knowledge of diamonds created some of masterpieces that proudly sat amongst the finest jewellery creations in Australia.
In 2001, Carabez was named one of the top seven jewellers in Australia by Autore South Sea Pearls.
In 2010, with her reputation expanding globally and international clients treasuring their unique jewelled artworks, she launched Carabez Bespoke Jewellery.
The Carabez Hombre collection and information on creating bespoke jewellery is available online.
