About the Editor


Ícaro Carlos, GIA Colored Stones Graduate – Editor responsable of ‘The Luxury Studio’

When I was 16 years old, on my first trip to Europe, I decided to walk through the jewelry universe. Studying at the renowned Instituto Europe di Design, in São Paulo, I won my first prize in the contest “Tahitian Pearl Trophy”. In 2009 I moved to Milan, Italy, and I was the only Brazilian to join the international academy led by the Cartier group. A year later I was working in the main studio of the brand in Paris.

I developed real projects for brands of ‘Richemont Group’ such as Montblanc, Roger Dubuis, Dunhil London and IWC. And after that, I made a partnership with Didier Brodbeck, French journalist and authority on the luxury market – so I decided to create ‘The Luxury Studio’, a blog about the precious universe of jewelry.

Today, graduated as Gemologist at the renowned GIA – Gemological Institute of America, the most important gemological institute in the world (in London), I dedicate my life to research and study about jewelry, writing articles for this blog, traveling and making the art direction of new publications and developing special collections for brands.

I want to bring to the world the richness of our culture in pieces of jewelry. The journey is precious!
