Each design he has designed is carefully selected with love and thought. Nothing he does is a quick process as each piece must have their own identity and personality. We wanted to get to know the man behind the process more!

BJ: Sophistication is you’re based for your collection. Why did you feel that was important to have your collection based off a sophistication designs?

CA: We try to appeal to women with a sense of style & uniqueness. Clean designs that have a classic elegance and remain timeless, but with a twist.  By using unusual materials, such as fossils, shells & minerals.

BJ: How do you incorporate trends into your collection and your own style?

CA: Because trends change frequently, we try and create our own jewelry trends for customers. We want our jewelry to be timeless and unique, not trendy to conform to ‘what is in’.  We do use color trends for different seasons.

BJ: Each of your designs is hand-crafted, why is that so important to you to hand craft each design for your collection?

CA: I think people are looking for quality, value and wearable art. Artisans handcraft each piece and it can take days to create an item.  I take great pride in this fact.  It’s not ‘cookie-cutter’ jewelry.  If I’m going to put my name on a piece of jewelry, I want it to represent the person I am and the company I started.

BJ: When you are designing who or what is your biggest inspiration?

CA: I am inspired by Mother Nature and her beauty. The uniqueness of minerals, fossils, shells & gemstones are truly amazing.  Each piece of jewelry we create is one-of-a-kind because no 2 stones are exactly alike.  Our pieces highlight the natural beauty of the stones we select.

BJ: What was your most successful/happiest moment as a designer?

CA: It’s always amazing seeing celebrities wearing our designs, but the first time I saw someone walking down the street wearing my jewelry it was surreal. It validated my career and my creative talent.

BJ: What is next for Charles Albert?

CA: The sky’s the limit. New designs, new ventures…I’m just happy to continue to do what I love.
