There is definitely a tribal aesthetic about the Caligrafia jewelry collection that will be a huge hit with fashion lovers around the world. Considering that such eccentric, bohemian accessories are all the rave right now, the Caligrafia jewelry collection is sure to make waves.

The first jewelry line for industrial designer Rodrigo Almeida, who is better known for his colorful seating creations, the Caligrafia jewelry collection is definitely in line with his previous designs.

Created for São Paulo jewelry shop Aria Joalheiros, the Caligrafia jewelry collection is comprised of seven one-of-a-kind bracelets and necklaces that explore the theme 'East meets West.' In particular, Almeida draws on the calligraphy and brushstrokes of written Eastern languages and sets them against Western references such as Latin letters.
