MATER calls for the intention of the brand to tell stories, stories that can be stored in the absence, in our memory and remembered in the future. Sara Coutinho, designer, founded MATER in July 2015 in Porto, Portugal. MATER is a contemporary jewelry brand defined by own and exclusive design to promote individualization, exclusivity and elegance, based on a historical, cultural and human legacy. The brand proposed value further comprises co-authorship, commitment and pursuit of excellence. Jewelry, in which are expressed the values and inspiration of the brand, is made of noble metals, gold and sterling silver, combined with natural stones and rocks, precious or semi- precious stones. MATER means origin, the mother of all things, the origin of matter, the origin of dream. MATER is a search for an ideal, a demand on the imagination of something real.
