SOBRAL_jewelry.gifBrazilian jewelry designer Carlos Sobral creates his bright, rainbow-colored jewelry through eco-friendly processes at his Rio de Janeiro workshop. Inspired by the vibrant heritage of his native country and the iconic Hippie movement, Sobral crafts his unique jewelry with resin and recycled materials. His entire production process is sustainable and environmentally friendly, right up to the biodegradable product packaging. He also provides his 160 employees with meals, medical care, and retirement plans - all rare benefits in Brazil. 

We love the bold colors and geometric shapes of this ethical and eco-chic collection. The statement pieces are perfect for taking your look from basic to fabulous in an instant! For more information or to shop, visit
