“They're not your mother's pearls,
they'll be your own legacy.”
—Jon De Porter
Jon De Porter’s life and career have been driven by an attraction to unusual beauty. The Montreal-born designer delved into the world of jewelry design after an impromptu visit to a chinese pearl market during a
24 hour unexpected layover.
Now based in Toronto and completely devoted to his craft, the designer's goals are ambitious; To redefine the conventional connotations of pearl jewelry as conservative and elitist. At the hand of De Porter, the pearl is transformed into highly covetable and contemporary jewelry.
