Of fashion and jewelry

CEBU, Philippines - The relationship between fashion and jewelry is not often talked about. But a relationship between the two aesthetic areas does exist. In fact, the two won’t stand out individually but must come together as one.

Such a union was the theme of a recent fashion presentation featuring the creations of seven top designers of Metro Manila and Cebu – and celebrated the 50th anniversary of one of the country’s reputable jewelry brands: Oro China Jewelry.

The occasion took place at the Santa Maria Ballroom of Radisson Blu Cebu on March 11. The featured high-fashion pieces were by Cebu’s Jun Escario, Arcy Gayatin, Philip Rodriguez and Cary Santiago – alongside the creations of Metro Manila’s Rajo Laurel, Francis Libiran, and Randy Ortiz.

Each of the designers’ presented five-piece collections were complemented by the in-season collections of Oro China Jewelry – covering the brand’s famed line of pearls and handcrafted pieces, either crafted with diamonds, precious stones, Chinese, Italian or Saudi Arabian gold.

It was a show of timeless aesthetics and contemporary design elements. It was a testament of how sublime designs can be made more dreamy when matched with fine jewelry. Incidentally, fine jewelry are even futuristic in the sense that these do not only serve their purpose in the present, but end up as family heirlooms passed down from generation to generation.

Oro China Jewelry is a Cebuano brand established in 1967 which currently has more than 30 branches nationwide. It has founded its name in a profound penchant for good quality. (FREEMAN)
