The jewelry collection was designed by Monseo Creative Director, Diana Vieira da Silva.


Portuguese Story has been awarded with the
Golden A' Design Award in Jewelry, Eyewear and Watch Design Competition Category.

It is possible to build an idea of contemporaneity with a perspective of our past. I decided to pick a time of great originality in art and Portuguese architecture. The main goal was to create a collection that would link the jewelry to architecture and Portuguese cultural heritage with a unique and contemporary perspective.
