For David Farrugia, founder of jewelry brand Uniform Object, creating was always going to be his path in life. “I’ve designed a lot of products in my time,” he exclusively tells Only Natural Diamonds. “But jewelry is the ultimate form of product design,” he says. “I wanted to make things that were impactful.” And what’s more impactful than a piece of jewelry you’ll have for life and pass down to the next generation?
“Playing with interesting shapes and contrasts is what sets Uniform Object apart,” Farrugia explains. Worn by celebs like Bella Hadid, Joe Jonas, and Chlöe Bailey, the designs appeal to all senses of styles and genders. With just one look at Uniform Object’s offerings, it’s clear why the brand has become so beloved. From elongated pears to animal bust-inspired rings, it’s a collection of distinctive and utterly unique designs, perfect for someone who wants to make a statement with their jewelry.
“We’re using stones and materials that are as old as the Earth,” says the designer of working with natural diamonds. “I think that story is really precious for people.” Knowing the journey your diamond endured to end up on your engagement ring, a necklace or bracelet makes the piece that much more special.
