Eddie Borgo Jewelry

Eddie Borgo is a jewelry line deeply rooted in the street culture of New York and the ideologies of the punk movement. It brings a fresh perspective and new energy to these established themes. Eddie Borgo's particular interest lies somewhere between the bold shapes and geometric forms of modern architecture and sculpture and the raw emotive energy of post punk beauty Siouxsie Sioux and the Rolling Stones. The designers work pursues a clean aesthetic and clarity of form, employing unexpected and suggestive materials like crystal spikes that are threaded on stain ribbon or brushed gold studs affixed to bands of black leather. The result is a potent mix of high end and street, boldly embodying the essential contradictions that make New York such an edgy and exciting city to experience and explore. Eddie Borgo has also created pieces for Altuzarra, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Marchesa, Jen Kao and Camilla Staerk. He creates collections for women and men and has made a name for himself in just three seasons. His next plans include a fine jewelry line that comes with sapphires and rubies but will stay rock'n'roll of course. Some pieces of Eddie Borgo's latest men collection are available on oki-ni.
