Last weekend, after 15 months of hard work, we launched The Jewel Collective.
The Jewel Collective is the epitome of affordable luxury. Born from the idea that everyone should be able to wear beautiful jewels made from natural materials and gems at a reasonable price, the pieces are designed to be worn and enjoyed both everyday and for special occasions. The Jewel Collective designs are classic, timeless and stylish, with a bit of an edge to make them truly original.
The launch of the website and business is the culmination of more than a year of planning and work by my husband and I. A life long passion for jewels and pearls led me to give up an almost two decade career in public relations to follow my dream and harness my consumer and online experience to create a destination for beautifully designed and hand crafted jewellery. It was important to me that the pieces we designed were high quality and beautiful yet still affordable for customers. I wanted to provide stylish women with another option for their accessories collection, other than costume jewellery.
Pieces from the first collection prices start at $125 and go all the way up to $3500 for a “one of a kind” strand of hand selected Tahitian pearls. Many of the pieces in the collection feature precious and semi-precious stones, such as sapphires, garnet, agate, citrines and pearls, as well as South Sea, Tahitian and freshwater pearls, sterling silver and high quality gold vermeil. The first collection contains earrings, necklaces and bracelets.
The Hera pendant, $350
When designing the pieces for the first collection, I drew on my own experiences of collecting jewellery over the years and my love of natural stones and pearls. Every piece is something I would wear, love and cherish.
Fortuna earrings, $150
