Here at Juvi, we believe that every piece of jewellery holds a magical meaning.
Something that means the world for you, marking a special moment, capturing a memory, signifying something to be treasured.
Because these moments mean so much to you, we create our collections with forever in mind.
It gives us heart to know that you can always look on your special ring, pendant or earrings with love, fondness and a smile.
We always say that each piece is a story brought home, sparked by inspiration from the most exotic places on this beautiful Earth, however the real story begins the moment you wear your piece of Juvi and it sparkles for the first time – that’s the moment our craft becomes your story.
We are inspired by travel, the feeling of adventure and the beauty in nature.
All of our collections have been inspired by a corner of the world that holds a special place in our hearts.
Travel is as important to us as the air we breathe.
From the gentle lapping waves of the Philippine shorelines, to the magical cocoa plantations of Mexico, the awe-inspiring twinkling windows of the tallest skyscrapers of Manhattan – right down to the majestic open skies over Ballinskelligs, right here on the Emerald Isle, there is wonder around every corner and we love to put that feeling into the pieces we make.
We are so protective of every step of our creative process, from sketching designs, to crafting pieces in our workshop.
When we travel to source materials and gemstones we work with people on the ground and forge relationships around the world with craftspeople who have decades of experience with local gemstones.
We travel to India an delve into the world of natural beauty as we watch our chosen stones go through the steps of cutting, faceting and polishing.
So much care is put into this process, as these stones will take centre stage in the jewellery we design when we arrive home to our studio in Dublin.
Like you, the footprint we cast
means a lot to us,
so we thread gently, using recyclable
materials like gold and silver.
All sterling silver and gold that we use is recycled from jewellery, giftware and electronic industries.
Using recycled materials means our impact on the earth is lessened and we are working to your expectations of being as ethical as possible.
In the plating process we use the finest German plating machinery and solutions at our dedicated plating room at our workshop, allowing us to be in full control of the quality of our plating. We gold plate our Sterling Silver jewellery to 3 microns.
When it comes to sourcing gemstones, our compass always points to India.
For centuries, the Pink City in India has been known as the epicentre for hand cut gemstones.
This has led to exceptional expertise over time and the gemstone workers in this part of India are known as the world leaders in their craft.
This is why we always look to Jaipur when sourcing our hand cut gemstones. The very nature of hand cut gemstones allows for an organic, unique look. With a hand cut stone, you know that there isn’t an exact stone like it in the world – which we believe makes the stones we use extra special.
Travel is always the starting point for our creative process.
We travel the world
searching for beautiful,
ethically sourced gemstones
and the return flight
is always spent chatting and sketching.
When we return to our studio, we work together to bring those sketches made at 35,000 feet to life, experimenting with finishes, different gemstones and feeling out the story we want the collection to tell. We are so lucky that our studio is nestled at the foothills of the Dublin Mountains.
So, although our work is predominantly inspired by the beauty of the most exotic places in the world, it’s only when we return home to our cosy workshop in Dublin, that we turn inspiration to reality.
There is something so lovely about opening a beautifully wrapped gift, even if it’s a gift to yourself (which you totally deserve).
We want you or your loved one to feel that “wow moment” when opening a new Juvi jewellery bag or box.
When it comes to packaging, we are very conscious of your environmental concerns – they are our concerns too, so we are working hard to make as many elements of our packaging recyclable as possible.
We are not quite there yet, but we are well on our way and over the next while, things will only get even more eco-friendly, check out our promise for 2021 to find out more.
If you are a real Juvi fan and don’t require additional jewellery boxes, bags or booklets with your order, we are happy to send you a low-impact environmentally friendly envelope when delivering your online order. Simply let us know at the checkout.
