The Italian jeweller and the former national Japanese footballer join forces to uncover the beauty in charity

Famed Japanese footballer Hidetoshi Nakata can now add jewellery designer to his portfolio. Teaming up with luxury Italian jeweller Damiani to produce the Metropolitan Dream by H. Nakata, the collection is a way for both parties to lend their support to the humanitarian project, Home for All.

With an international jet setter in mind, the eclectic range of pendants and bracelets are a timeless addition for the metropolitan man. Simple yet distinctive, cross-shaped pendants are available in two sizes with the option of a double pendant in a smaller size. Woven cord bracelets come in three variations: A cross, a cylindrical tube or three beaded spheres set with diamonds adorn the rugged rope. 

In Japan, part of the revenue will be channelled towards the Home for All project, a movement started by Japanese architects in 2011 that benefits earthquake victims. Building a community through shared experiences and providing a place to call home for their beneficiaries, pick up a piece of that gorgeous yet masculine cord bracelet and do some good while you're at it.
