“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.” — Diana Vieira da Silva - Monseo Creative Director.
Portuguese Story is a beautiful translation of Diana inspiration from the Portuguese Architecture, expressing her will to merge the new technologies with the best of craftsmanship and Portuguese tradition.
