I had the opportunity to meet and interview jewelry designer Eddie Borgo at a Neiman Marcus trunk show. Eddie’s line is in over 200 stores worldwide, and recently collaborated with Target, which you can find in stores now.

So, who is designer Eddie Borgo outside of being super cool and letting me absorb all of his time? In 2010, Borgo was awarded runner up in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. In 2011, Borgo won the CFDA Swarovski Award for innovation in accessory design and was a recipient of the first ever CFDA/Vogue Tiffany & Co. Development Grant.
But really, this is the most important question Eddie can answer in terms of jewelry: what piece of jewelry should every woman own?
His answer:
*An heirloom piece that has been passed down by previous generations
*A piece that has been bought for them by someone special to them
*A piece that reflects their own, personal style

Things you don’t need to know about Eddie:
*He was born in Ohio
*He has no tattoos
*He talks to his mom at least once a week, but if his mom had her way they would talk every day
*He lives in Soho and is walking distance from his office

What’s the next big thing for this designer? Handbags—in 8 different styles that have a modem, vintage feel to them. The biggest challenge to designing a handbag is the weight of the bag. Wanting to keep the same asthenic of the brand, but with heavy hardware, makes it a bit of a challenge to keep the purse lightweight.
