About LUZ

Since 2000

Since 2000

Making jewellery is my passion, and it has been for a very long time. It started in high school when I made my first necklace for class. From that moment I was sold! I enjoy my job everyday. I love to create a beautiful pieces of jewellery together with my customers. I like to try new techniques to keep challenging myself and getting inspiration to stimulate my mind time and again. Every piece of jewellery that I make is hand made with love and attention to detail. I only use the highest quality materials to make my creations so each piece of jewellery is unique.

Only the Best

Sustainable and Fairtrade

Gold is valuable and a golden piece of jewelry often has a special meaning. Using Fairtrade gold will make will make your piece of jewelry even more valuable. From the mining of the gold to the wearing of the jewelry, attention and love will be put into all our jewelry. Fairtrade mining is small-scale with special attention to working conditions, the environment and the miners receive better wages. The price of Fairtrade certified gold is equal to that of the world price, but a premium of 10% is added in order to comply with the Fairtrade standards. That is why atelier LUZ is a registered goldsmith at Fairtrade International.

Craft and Design

Our craftsmanship comes to life in the studio. Each piece of jewelry is made entirely by hand, combining traditional and modern techniques. Beautiful design, quality and sustainability is very important to us. We only work with high quality gold, white gold or silver, often in combination with diamonds, gems and pearls that are carefully selected. The gold and silver we use is Fairtrade or recycled and the diamonds are conflict-free.

The collections are mostly inspired by flowers and shapes from nature, which you can see in the subtlety of the design. The forms are simple and abstract to create a clear and powerful image. Contrast is often created by strong lines and asymmetry.

Started working on a new collection of rings. These first two are made with diamonds. I had some good inspirations last week and these two are just the start of a project I am looking forward to. Anyone a nice suggestion for a name for this collection? #engagementring #alternativeengagementring #verlovingsring #trouwen2020 #diamondring #fairtadegold #fairtradejewelry #handmadejewelry #icediamonds #amsterdammade #atelierluz
