Our mission is to provide fine jewelry at a reasonable price by eliminating markups.
Each piece is mindfully handcrafted in-house, giving it the long life it truly deserves. Our team goes above and beyond to find the fine materials that are worthy of your skin.
Since incorporation, we have focused on three core values:
In order to improve the quality of our products, we made a huge transition of moving our manufacturing from Asia to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
We’ve done our due diligence to choose partners who are aligned with our core values. Our highest priority is that our partners follow a code of conduct adhering to measures that ensure fair labor practices, safe working conditions, and a sustainable approach to production.
Big-name brands typically charge 10-11x the actual cost.
We decided to disrupt this model.
Reducing our overheads, we’ve built a strong
relationship with our supplier to sell directly to you at a fair price.
Since our founding in 2020, we’ve worked from the ground up to ensure fair labour practices and a sustainable approach to manufacturing. We work closely with our manufacturers to ensure all gemstones and pearls are ethically sourced. Our partners follow our Code of Conduct adhering to measures that ensure fair labor practices and safe working conditions.
For our packaging, we use an ECO-friendly jewelry box that is FSC®-certified. The glue, paper and cardboard used in the production of this jewelry box, are all 100% eco-friendly.

Current Collection by Helga Villela and Allana Gonçalves
With more than 20 years' experience in the jewelry industry, our designer Helga Villela dominates all jewelry processes.
She graduated from her bachelors in Jewelry Design from Firenze, Italy, where she continued to work for 3 years as a design intern.
Back in Rio de Janeiro, she has developed collections for renowned jewelry stores and oversaw the jewelry section of one of Brazil's leading retail firms for ten years.
Observant and curious, she is inspired by the great changes in social behavior, the aesthetics of urban centers, architecture and modern art. Her creations are a combination of beauty, solace, luxury and social graces.
Allana has a Geography background, and while working on her Monograph, she learned of a course called "Goldsmith" and chose to dive deep into the subject.
She fell in love with jewelry and wanted to study more, so she enrolled in advanced courses in goldsmithing, jewelry 3D modeling, and one-year jewelry design at IED SP-Brazil, which included a module in Florence, Italy.
She completed all of these courses while pursuing her Geography degree and working as an Educational Robotics teacher.While attending her advanced course, she created her brand (Altaluc Jóias), which has served as her creative, development, and learning laboratory.
She's been a designer for a year and is in charge of quality control, manufacturing, and style at our factory, where she had the opportunity to co-create the new Kora Kora collection.
