Devoted to expressing new ways to look at and think contemporary jewellery, Elements Contemporary Jewellery is the brainchild of Marco and Nuno Santos’s disruptive vision. Their father being a renowned jewellery trader, these young creatives have an undisputed industry background, and it was, and is, right where they always wanted to be. But for them, more was more. Aware that ‘jewellery design is flowing towards focusing on constant innovation and mass production, not on substance’, they headed to San Diego to get a specialisation in Gemology at the Gemological Institute of America.

Upon having completed their studies, Marco returned to Portugal to set up a distribution company and Nuno began working in high jewellery at Chanel. However, in 2008, the brothers decided to join efforts and launched the brand Dos Santos, followed by their first Elements shop in Porto. It wasn’t long until their success translated into two new shops, this time in Lisbon. Elements Contemporary Jewellery stands out because of its simple, avant-garde design, and holds exclusive national representation of the brands António Bernardo, Niessing, Meister and VanRycke.
