The jewelry designs of Gonzalo Palma are boldly geometric. The sharp shapes and basic coloring gives each piece an aesthetic that is both edgy and sophisticated. Although the designs are very dynamic, there is a simplicity to each silhouette that makes it perfect for different outfits and occasions.

Based in Lima, Peru, Gonzalo Palma is heavily inspired by architecture and furniture design of the 30s and 50s, especially by designers such as Mies Van Der Rohe, Marc Newson and Zara Zahid. By melding art and fashion, Gonzalo Palma manages to focus on various atypical facets of his jewelry creations. These facets include shape, weight and textures in addition to more abstract concepts of light and shadow.
