Latitude is a Brazilian Jewelry brand founded by CEO and jewelry designer Gabriela Rodrigues. The brand seeks to honour cultures, discover destinations, and awaken the adventurous spirit of those who wear the jewellery
The contemporary Brazilian fine jewelry brand Latitude Jewelry, launched in 2019, was founded by CEO and jewelry designer Gabriela Rodrigues. Born in Brazil, her lifelong love affair with aviation and travel was sparked at an early age by her mother, Lúcia who was an air traffic controller. Gabi, inspired by her mother, also became an air traffic controller in Brazil and worked in the aviation industry for many years, traveling widely around the world.
Latitude Jewelry is a fine jewelry brand that has a travel DNA running through it. It is also characterized by Gabriela’s Brazilian heritage, her sense of adventure, her love of color, and her bold design. Like travel mementos, the distinctive jewels are based on the designer's memories and experiences and are designed to be highly collectible, versatile, and practical. Travel references and themes run throughout the designs from the wind rose, to globe motifs, flight routes, and co-ordinates.
Responsibly sourced precious metals and gems, including diamonds, emeralds, sapphires, and topaz, join the colors of ornamental stones such as lapis lazuli and malachite, creating differentiated combinations, bringing modernity to pieces made in 18k yellow gold and white gold. The brand seeks to honor cultures, discover destinations, and awaken the adventurous spirit of those who wear the jewelry.
