Born in New York City in 1968, Alberto Parada is equally at home in the United States and in his parents’ native South America, where he spent much of his youth. Today he lives in Washington DC but travels frequently to Paraguay and Uruguay. His unique cultural background has inspired a passion for bold and delicate design, influenced by tradition yet utterly new and refreshingly distinct.
After working with various jewelers in Washington D.C. for nearly 15 years, Alberto had a vision for his own original line. A self-taught designer, his mission was to showcase what seemed to be missing in jewelry design of the moment. Alberto describes the vision for his original line as ‘everyday elegance’ – eye-catching jewelry that can be worn anytime, anywhere.
Blending diamonds and brilliant South American colored gems with various tones of recycled HARMONY™ 18K gold, Alberto is known for the high quality of his materials and extraordinary craftsmanship. Clients prize his one-of-kind, custom-designed pieces for their timeless yet modern style. He is recognized as a leading ‘green’ innovator in the industry, and his jewelry is manufactured in the United States.
