Adel Chefridi was born in the old city of Tunis, along the Mediterranean coast. He came to New York in 1998, where he studied Gemology at the GIA and then completed an intensive study of goldsmithing and diamond setting. Adel built his first studio in the kitchen of his Brooklyn apartment and later went onto establish a studio and showroom in SOHO. Today Adel’s work draws increasingly from his multicultural background. Emphasizing simplicity and wearability, Adel uses genuine gemstones such as diamonds and sapphires and precious metals in his pieces to imbue them with a friendly peaceful look that makes them wearable everyday.
