Uphondo Collection – Photoshoot

NOL Jewellers – Photography


This was our first project for NOL Jewellers, and we were asked to organize a photoshoot around the Uphondo Collection, which holds all the elements of the brand’s dna.

In order to illustrate the new organic collection Uphondo by NOL Jewellers, we organized a photoshoot centered around the theme of “exoticism”.

The Uphondo Collection is inspired by Luísa and Nuno’s numerous travels to the most unlikely places, where fauna and flora serve as a canvas for both designers. Organic materials, large stones, diamonds, emeralds turn the Uphondo jewelry pieces into true objets d’art.

For this session, Sparkling PR imagined an exotic setting inspired by the African savannah with terra-cotta tones, warm colors, and natural light. The Guincho beach in Cascais provided the essential elements to create the illusion of an arid landscape adorned with the most beautiful jewels from faraway lands.

We collaborated again with some of our favorite talents to make this vision a reality. The fantastic photographer, Gonçalo Catarino captured the essence of our set and gorgeous model, Alina from Fashion Studio. Our MUA, Marta Pereira used a terracotta palette to create the perfect smokey eye. The talented Lúcia Valdevino found the ideal dresses to transform our model into an authentic Queen of the Desert. And once again Carolina Monteverde filmed the set to create a fantastic making of video.

Check out NOL Jewelers and discover the exotic pieces of the Uphondo Collection.
