Adel Chefridi Fine Jewels Heads for "Greener" Pastures

Moves Jewelry Studio From SoHo to Woodstock

WOODSTOCK, NY--(Marketwire - March 11, 2008) - Adel Chefridi Fine Jewels has announced that it has completed its move to Woodstock, New York, from the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan. The new and expanded studio, located on Plochmann Lane, will be a key center for the design and crafting of Adel Chefridi Fine Jewels, which can be purchased through the company's online store at www.chefridi.com.

"There were many good reasons for choosing a more natural setting for the design center," said Chefridi, commenting on the decision to move his N.Y. studio. "Being close to nature is a great inspiration for any designer, especially when you are working with natural materials.

"And, as a gemologist and goldsmith, I feel it's important to conserve and respect natural resources -- using recycled gold and natural, untreated gemstones, for example. I find that the Woodstock artist community is vital and environmentally sensitive, as well as relatively close to New York City, making it an ideal place to live and work."

Adel Chefridi established his first U.S. studio in Brooklyn, N.Y., after moving from Tunis in 1998. He eventually moved it to the vibrant SoHo community of Manhattan, where he developed a following among jewelry lovers who appreciated the elegance and simplicity of his designs. Encouraged by their enthusiasm, he launched his retail website in 2003.

"Most of my designs start with the discovery of a beautiful gemstone. I think of the design as a framework; a way to present the innate beauty of both the gemstone and the wearer," explained Chefridi.

Mr. Chefridi studied at the Gemological Institute of America where he earned his Graduate Gemologist (CG) and Accredited Jewelry Professional (AJP). He is also an accomplished goldsmith and Bench Jeweler.
