Featuring the Frond Hoop Earring and the Frond Ring from the Edward Borgo Fine Jewelry Collection
EDDIE BORGO makes the majestic palm his muse in his debut fine jewelry collection.
Throughout history and across cultures, people have associated the tenacious palm tree with victory, abundance, and joyous occasions. It is no wonder fronds
are the focal point of Los Angeles–based jewelry designer Eddie Borgo’s debut ﬁne jewelry collection, The Palms by Edward Borgo.
Each of the 10 one-of-a-kind iterations, which include glittery drop earrings, collars, and statement rings, captures the organic fluidity of the leaf using 18-karat recycled gold, as well as vintage and antique white diamonds from the ‘20s, ‘30s, and ‘40s — a conscious effort to foster a more sustainable approach.
“California allowed me the time to study and memorialize the alluring palm, giving its structure new life,” explains the Ohio-born Borgo of his delicate designs, a departure from the geometric forms and punky sensibility that put him on the map in 2008. After living bicoastally for years, the designer finally established his home on the West Coast in 2019. “I appreciate Los Angeles because it gives me a feeling of life and freedom,” Borgo says of the stream of creative energy he has tapped into. “I enjoy having time to be more considered and deliberate in my processes,” he adds. It’s a move that has clearly paid off. eddieborgo.com. C.C.
