Gift someone special moon-shaped jewelry so beautiful that even the Moon Goddess Chang’e would wear. Illumi Jewel is a UK jewelry brand known for elegant pieces made of crystals and gold inspired by ancient Goddesses and Deities. This jewelry brand is owned by Chinese-British designer Bernadette Molyneaux who felt inspired to create dazzling one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces during the pandemic.
Every single piece of design is limited in numbers, as it depends on what could be imported and fashioned by the local gemstones quarry/artisan where it was mined. All designs are created using genuine 14K yellow gold or rose gold plated/filled metal. Customers can enjoy the uniqueness of each handcrafted piece, as each design has only a handful of copies that exist in the world.
