Alberto Parada - Earrings
A self-taught designer, Alberto Parada draws inspiration from the simplistic natural beauty and bounty of his native South America. His work speaks of a quiet boldness in the delicate composition of architectural form, space and color. These elements successfully combine to create a statement piece that can be as bold or as subtle as the owner's own style reveals. Alberto Parada has been a leader in the sustainable fine jewelry movement. Alberto uses only conflict-free diamonds, fair-trade gems, and reclaimed gold in his jewelry, which is manufactured in the United States. He is a member of the 'No Dirty Gold' campaign. Alberto launched his line at the first Seattle Green Fashion week in 2007 and since has participated in several sustainable-fashion and eco-luxury events.
