Eddie Borgo was making cool jewels for photo shoots before he launched his designs for his masses. Editorially-inspired, he makes collections with rock-and-roll edge: slightly dangerous, totally glamorous (hello, gold five-finger ring draped in a strand of pavé crystals). Additionally, Eddie Borgo’s line is on the affordable side (so I actually knock these rose gold spike earrings off my wish list). Meet the main man and shop his designs tomorrow at Neiman Marcus Downtown from 10 am to 3 pm. In the meantime, get to know him with our quick Q&A. (We too love a minimal wardrobe and vintage Levi’s.)
What was the first piece of jewelry you ever created?
Eddie: Our cone bracelet. We made the first piece for a photo shoot for W Magazine. It has become our signature piece.
