Jose Hess, from necklaces refined gold and diamonds, to the cufflinks with Mickey’s face: the luxury meets pop.
One of the most imaginative designers of the century: perhaps can be defined in this way Jose Hess, but is also ok a definition as an artist or craftsperson. In short, it is one of those rare people who can do many things well but, above all, has a very definite personality, which turns her skills into precious objects. Master goldsmith, designer and gemologist, is a supporter of an American jewelry design, somewhere between pop and the extra luxury. Alongside refined necklaces, like the necklace Ribbon, you see on this page, you can find the twins by gold wrist with the face of Mickey Mouse. In addition to focusing on the creative process, moreover, Jose Hess teaches jewelry design at the Fashion Institute of Technology, he worked as a consultant for jewelry companies in the US and abroad, and draws collections of jewelry that are sold on television, with himself to make live presentations.
Another proof of its many attitudes? It was also the first American president to Cibjo, an international association that seeks to establish uniform standards for the jewelry industry worldwide. Jose is worshiped also in Hollywood, by celebrities such as Demi Moore, Cindy Crawford, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Candy Spelling. Alessia Mongrando
